Sandy Closes Brookfield Schools Monday, Tuesday

Brookfield public schools will be closed during the incoming Hurricane Sandy.

Current weather forecasts predict that Hurricane Sandy will bring damaging winds and heavy rain that will result in unsafe travel conditions over a 36-hour period, prompting Brookfield Public Schools to close on Monday, October 29 and Tuesday, October 30.

Superintendent Anthony Bivona said Sunday that the school district will continue to work closely with the town's emergency management team and update residents based on the latest information through the following informational resources:

  • Notification via television stations- WFSB Channel 3, WVIT NBC30 Channel 6, WTNH Channel 8, Radio Stations 95.1, 98.3, WLAD 800AM
  • Notification posted on the Brookfield Public Schools website (www.brookfieldps.org)
  • Automated phone call via the "School-Reach" system to all parents, faculty and staff.
  • Notification by recorded message on the Brookfield Public Schools main voicemail system
  • Notification via E-news
  • Go to the Town website at www.brookfieldct.gov for further information and to www.ctalert.gov to register to receive emergency notifications from State and Town agencies.

Please note that these means of communication will be utilized providing there is no disruption of internet and/or phone services.

..There is a link on every page of the town's website to CT Alert. Brookfield is a participating member of the program. To save you time, here's the link: http://www.ct.gov/ctalert/site/default.asp

Mike, the headline is about Brookfield Schools, NOT the Town of Brookfield. They are not interchangeable. Mr. Davidson doesn't speak for the schools and Mr. Bivona doesn't speak for the Town.

Try brookfieldct.gov. This article is about the schools.

Kevin: thx and my apology . I obviously did not go to that link. Went to the "Prepared" and found little of use. Interested Party (Another no name wonder): I have no idea what you're talking about. Rob: I'll attempt to explain the next time I see you. It's not that hard. Irony is lost...
