A decade ago, Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on New York City’s coastline, killing 43 New Yorkers and indelibly changing parts of the five boroughs.
The storm made landfall on Oct. 29, 2012, destroying homes, knocking out power, and flooding the subway system in the days that followed. The school system was impacted, with classes canceled for all students for a week. Dozens of damaged schools remained shuttered even longer, forcing their students to share buildings with other schools. At least one teacher lost her life.
As this anniversary approaches, we want to hear from our readers about the lasting impact of this tragedy on their school communities.
