Lights back on at all but one school

This report was updated at 10:30 p.m. Monday.

Thirteen of the 14 D.C. public schools darkened by Hurricane Irene will open on time Tuesday, officials just announced. There are also plans to relocate students at Oyster Bilingual to alternate sites if power is not back on by tomorrow morning.

Here are the details from DCPS:

Families with students at the Oyster Building of Oyster-Adams Bilingual School should adhere to the following pickup and drop-off procedures Tuesday morning and afternoon.

Parents should drop-off students at Oyster on Tuesday morning and pick them up from Oyster for afternoon dismissal.

In the event power is not restored in time for classes on Tuesday, Oyster students in pre-K to second grade will be relocated to the Adams campus of Oyster-Adams; Oyster students in third grade will be relocated to Marie Reed Elementary.

After drop-off Tuesday morning, students will be transported by bus to the Adams campus or Marie Reed Elementary, depending on their grade level.

At dismissal Tuesday, students will return from the Adams campus or Marie Reed and be dismissed from Oyster.

Thomas Elementary, where power was restored on Monday, will open on time on Tuesday morning.

School Without Walls staff and students should plan to report to Eastern High again on Tuesday.

Families should continue to monitor the DCPS Web site, www.dcps.dc.gov, as well as DCPS social media (@DCPublicSchools on Twitter and Facebook.com/dcpublicschools) for any updates.

Families also can call the DCPS Critical Response Team at 202-478-5738.
