Progress
Despite the weather we are making substantial progress towards opening three buildings on Tuesday morning. Most of the work currently underway is inside. since we already do not have power, the power outages impacted others because of the nor'easter had no impact on the cleanup effort. No additional damage was sustained to any of the buildings. 

The portable generators and boilers noted in yesterday's update are in the pipeline, and arrival is anticipated shortly. It is also possible that LIPA will be restoring electric service to the high school prior to Tuesday.

We have restored our fibers connections to East School, Lindell School, and Transportation. That should provide us with telephone, internet and network service at Lindell. 

Web Buddies
Our biggest issues at the moment are logistical. Communication inside Long Beach is difficult. We are not able to establish our land lines or man them yet. Our best vehicle is this web site. However, many people inside Long Beach do not have access to the web. Therefore, I am asking you to either get or be a WEB BUDDY. If you are in Long Beach, find someone who can check the web in the evening and send you a text of pertinent information. If you are outside of Long Beach, please become a web buddy for someone still here. 

Transportation
For next week we will transporting to Long Beach from Nassau County at select locations. As we better identify where students are, we will be establishing more convenient routes. We are using the information parents supplied us to organize our routing. Expect a posting Monday with details. We will try to have it earlier if we are able. Please note that none of our buses sustained damage. We will be utilizing our entire fleet, with most of the buses picking up outside of Long Beach

We will be setting up shuttles from the entrances to Long Beach. We have been asked by officials to limit traffic into the area and we are not equipped to handle pickups and drop offs at schools. We will provide adults on our buses. These details will be finalized and posted on the web along with the routes.

We will be running buses inside Long Beach. We will also be transporting to and from private and parochial schools. Times and stops are likely to be different than prior to Hurricane Sandy, please check back Monday evening for the information. We will try to have it earlier if we are able.

Donations and Contributions
We will be establishing a number of funds for donations and contributions. We DO NOT NEED more clothing of student school supplies at this time. We will be establishing an email address to contact us regarding donations and for queries about how to help our school and our students.
