Connors Cafeteria Opens Partly For First Time Since Sandy
The kitchen isn't fully open yet but students will be able to eat in the cafeteria again, the school board announced.
For the first time since Hurricane Sandy hit in late October, 2012, students at the Connors School, located at Second and Monroe, can have breakfast and lunch in their cafeteria.
While there is still work being done on the kitchen — which is not yet in service — school board members said, the cafeteria is open.
"The kids will be able to eat in the cafeteria," said board member Ruth McAllister. But, she said, the meals will be "buffet style, cooked in a different location."
The Connors School sustained the most damage during Sandy, rendering much of the first floor — including the cafeteria, offices and multiple classrooms — useless. Much of the school has been out of service since the hurricane hit.
