Wallingford Students Back in School After Microburst

Students in Wallingford’s Public School District went back to school Monday after missing three days last week because of the severe storm damage.

On Monday night, the Board of Education plans to discuss how to handle those missed days.

The district already had 183 school days built into the school year, three more than the state requires, according to Superintendent Salvatore Menzo. Menzo said he will be requesting the board forgive three days, so the last day of school and graduation can remain on June 22.

As life for students in Wallingford started to return to normal, many parents and homeowners were still cleaning up the mess mother nature left behind, including downed trees, utility lines, and damage to their homes and cars.

Other school districts such as Brookfield, Oxford, New Fairfield and Newtown were still closed Monday.

The superintendent of Brookfield Public Schools said he requested a waiver through the Connecticut Department of Education that would exclude the district from the required 180 school days.
