Schools in Brick Township resume Monday, but not all students are yet back in their homes. Storm-tossed families are strewn across a broad expanse.The Board of Education understands that time is not on their side, and has launched a concerted effort to bring them in.

Board members urge displaced families to contact Superintendent Dr. Walter Uszenski directly, 732-785-3000, extension 1019. The board is arranging transportation for all students living in neighboring communities.

Anyone lodging in other districts can also call local superintendents in those districts. See a statewide list at http://education.state.nj.us/directory.
