As of 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31, power has been restored to Lower Nazareth Elementary School and the Nazareth Area Intermediate School, according to an announcement posted on Nazareth Area School District's website.
"The remainder of our buildings do not have power at this time," district Superintendent Dennis Riker writes. "I would like for everyone to know that the District facilities sustained minimal damage, none of which has been the cause for the District or a building to be closed."
All six of the district's schools have been closed since Hurricane Sandy swirled through the Lehigh Valley on Monday.
The district is also working with its transportation contractor, because there is "a high level of concern that a significant number of our students would not be able to be transported, while at the same time, several areas in which our students walk are not safe at the time either," according to Riker.
An announcement regarding whether or not school will be in session on Thursday will be made around 7 p.m.
