Update on Sapphire and PT power outages

on November 29, 2016

12 noon

Power is restored at Pine Tree.

Sapphire families:

The district has learned that a tree has fallen on a major power line on Harriman Heights Road and has caused the power outage. O&R Electric has indicated that power will not likely be restored to Sapphire before the end of the school day. As a result, Sapphire students will be moved to Central Valley Elementary as soon as possible. Lunch will be served and afternoon dismissal will follow the regular schedule.

Parents who routinely pick up their children are asked to pick them up at Central Valley Elementary, 45 Route 32, Central Valley. After school care and all after school activities at Sapphire Elementary have been canceled for today.

Please call 460-6500 if you have any questions. Thank you for your understanding!
