Storm Front Cancels Classes at Montour, Moon Area
Montour and Moon Area schools cancel classes as Hurricane Sandy pushes its way toward Pittsburgh.
All Tuesday classes and Monday-evening events in the districts have been cancelled "due to possible power outages and the difficulty or inability to communicate with our school community," according to an announcement from district officials.
The Moon Area School District still plans to go forward with its board meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, said district spokeswoman Megan Edwards.
Heavy winds and flooding are expected in the next 24 hours as the late-season Hurricane Sandy moves west from the eastern seaboard, according to the National Weather Service.
