NEW MILFORD - The high school in New Milford was flooded with 2 inches of rain as a result of Hurricane Irene.

Superintendent Michael Polizzi says the district's custodians did a great job preparing for the hurricane, which cut down on damage left behind. One way that the custodians prepared for the hurricanes was by using a heavy duty tape to seal off doors.

Polizzi says they've got it down to a science now. In past storms, he says the labs had about a half a foot of water.

Polizzi says the only reason they're not opening up on time, is that his custodians are exhausted and he wants them to have the extra day off.
