Township students usually have a fall semester break in Woodbridge. The break this year, though, was unusually long. That was from a combination of the mini-vacation itself, plus a nor'easter and Hurricane Sandy.
The hurricane caused schools to be shut down days in advance of the fall semester break.
In a sense it was a saving grace that school was out. It meant that PSE&G had more time to restore service to the schools in Woodbridge, so they could use that time to focus on restoring electrical power to thousands of township homeowners, many of whom went a week or more with no electricity.
School is back in session today on a regular schedule.
