Montclair Schools have a new superintendent as of November 1, 2012 – today! Students and families received their first missive from Superintendent Penny MacCormack this afternoon, and of course it was about Hurricane Sandy’s impact on the schools.

Ms. MacCormack writes:

We continue to make every effort to ready our schools to open in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. In this regard, Central Office administrators and staff are working to address further developments while communicating with township, police and fire officials to determine the next course of action.

As of today, Thursday, November 1, four Montclair schools remain without power: Bradford, Nishuane, Northeast and Watchung. Power has been restored to Renaissance and the George Innes Annex.

Along with ensuring schools open as soon as it is safe to do so, we are faced with the NJEA cancellation of the Teacher’s Convention scheduled on November 8 and 9. Details will be forthcoming as to the district’s decision on whether or not schools will be open during those two days after collaboration with the Board and the MEA leadership.

Please know that the safety of our students and families and the entire Montclair community is our primary concern. We ask for your continued patience during this difficult time.

Please continue to check the website, www.montclair.k12.nj.us, if you are able to do so, for updated information.

Sincerely,

Penny MacCormack, Ed.D. Superintendent

She also shared her Plan of Entry, which you can read here.

Welcome to Montclair, Superintendent MacCormack!
