Woodland School is expected to be in session Thursday with no early dismissal anticipated, despite a letter sent home Tuesday by Superintendent Ryan McGuckin that indicated classes might be released early.
McGuckin issued a new letter late Tuesday telling parents school will be in session all day on Thursday as planned.
The letter stemmed from a notice from ComEd the district received Monday indicating they would be doing maintenance work on Thursday and the power would be out in the school between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
McGuckin had said in the letter school would be in session, but if power was shut off for more than 15 minutes, students would be released according to their regular method within an hour.
McGuckin initially tried to contact corporate officials to suggest changing the day to a non-school day but had not heard back from them.
