CRANFORD - Cranford Public Schools will remain closed while the district works to clean up the damage left behind by Hurricane Irene.

The district says it hopes the delay will not only allow the school to prepare for the first day of students, but also help families and teachers who were impacted by the storm at their homes.

School will reopen for staff on Sept. 8 and students on Sept. 12.

The district says the two days missed will be made up by holding school on April 13 and May 25.
