NOTICE FROM EINSTEIN CHARTER SCHOOLS CEO SHAWN TORANTO:
"All of Einstein Charter School campuses will be closed tomorrow due to downed power lines and in order to assess damage at our three campuses. All of our children are safe. Out of caution, we want to make sure the facilities are safe, thus we ask parents to monitor the school's website, as well as the local news media, for information regarding when all campuses are ready to re-open."
