Millburn superintendent announces plan for school calendar.
After Superstorm Sandy, Millburn schools were required to stay closed during extended power outages. Superintendent Dr. James Crisfield recently announced the district's plan for the school calendar: To be sure, there were options to choose from to make up the days and the above plan will not please everybody. In fact, I can't think of a topic that attracts more opinions (many of which are, let's say, "strongly held") and that can more solidly guarantee a lack of unanimity than the school calendar! But something had to be done, so I solicited input from many quarters, listened to everybody's pros and cons, and then made the call. I thank everybody in advance for your understanding and kind consideration. Jim Crisfield
