All Schools To Reopen Wednesday

by | Oct 31, 2017

Power to Hanaford was restored late Tuesday

School resumes Wednesday for all East Greenwich schools. Families heard from Supt. Victor Mercurio twice Tuesday, first at around 6 p.m. saying that schools would reopen except Hanaford, which was still without power. But in a second robo call just after 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Mercurio said National Grid had restored power to Hanaford, so all students would be returning to school Wednesday, Nov. 1.

The power cable hangs low over the sidewalk on Cedar Avenue near Cole.

Power outages across town continue, with estimates of Friday, Nov. 3, for restoration.
