According to the school district website and a message on the district phone line, Brookfield public schools will be closed Wednesday, October 31.
A district-wide message sent out Tuesday afternoon said that Huckleberry Hill Elementary School (HHES) and Brookfield High School (BHS) are currently without power and that there will be another update from the school system by 3 p.m. Wednesday.
As of 3 p.m. Tuesday, 80 percent of Brookfield is without power, some 6,300 residents and businesses. Brookfield’s emergency management personnel and Connecticut Light and Power (CL&P) liaison are meeting at 4 p.m. to discuss the current situation and possibly establish preliminary timetables for restoration. (Brookfield Patch will provide updated information after that meeting.)
Residents who are without power can use the emergency shelter at BHS for showers, food preparation and overnight stays. Residents can also charge their devices, use the Internet and get clean water at Town Hall, the Senior Center, police station and both fire houses.
