Lakehurst Elementary School will not open until Monday, Nov. 12, Superintendent of Schools Jill Dobrowansky announced Friday.
"After speaking with the local authorities, the Lakehurst School District will remain closed throughout next week," she said in an email to Patch.
Student safety was a concern in reopening the downtown Lakehurst school, the superintendent has said. Electric wires are down and borough police on Friday warned that some less secure lines could fall if wind picks up, according to police.
"I need to ensure that our students can safely get to school since we are a walking district," Dobrowansky said Thursday.
Anyone who sees a downed wire in Lakehurst is asked to call the police department at 732-657-7811.
Manchester school officials have not made a determination if students will return to class next week, though power has been restored to nearly all buildings.
With power still out for some Lakehurst residents, trick or treat in the borough this year has been canceled.
Mayor Harry Robbins made the decision to cancel because of the "numerous" power outages, Borough Clerk Bernadette Dugan said Friday afternoon.
The warming station hosted by the Lakehurst Volunteer Fire Company at the Proving Ground Road emergency services complex will continue through Sunday, Dugan said. The facility is open to borough residents from 6 to 9 p.m. to recharge cell phones, take a warm shower and have a cup of coffee.
