Saucon Students to Return to Class Monday

Saucon Valley schools will reopen on Monday, Nov. 5, after being closed for a week due to widespread power outages caused by Superstorm Sandy.

Saucon Valley students will return to class tomorrow, superintendent Dr. Sandra Fellin announced late Sunday afternoon.

Students were off from school for a week due to widespread power outages caused by Superstorm Sandy's high winds.

Since a few parts of the area are still without power, Fellin said accommodations will be made for students and staff who haven't had service restored yet.

"Locker rooms will be open to staff and students if needed," she said. And "those students not is attendance due to power outages and road closures will have excused absences."

Monday will be a catch-up day for students; Tuesday and Wednesday will be the end of the first quarter; and Thursday will be a half-day grading day.

Fellin said all Lower Saucon Township roads are open, passable and free of wires with the exception of the following thoroughfares:

  • Wilhelm road and Flint Hill Road (wires).
  • Wassergass Road from Drifting Drive to the county line (Raubsville) remains CLOSED. 
  • Drifting Drive from Banko Lane to Wassergass Road (wires over road).
  • Evergreen Drive remains CLOSED.

Drifting Drive and Evergreen Drive could possibly be reopened by the end of today, Fellin indicated.
