LAWRENCE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Parents in Nassau County were furious Tuesday night, upon learning that due to damage from Superstorm Sandy more than two months ago, thousands of students will be moved to new schools later this week.
As CBS 2’s Emily Smith reported, frustrated parents packed the auditorium at Lawrence Middle School to confront the school superintendent.
“Jade is going to be devastated,” one woman said. “What, is she going to play with high schoolers?”
The parents wanted to know why they just found out at 4 p.m. Tuesday that thousands of kids will be moved to new schools as of Thursday. The reason is all due to damage from Sandy back in October.
