Thursday, September 5 marked the first day of the 2013 - 2014 school year at Robert L. Craig School in Moonachie, and the first day students began occupying the facility that was forced to close after suffering severe damage from Superstorm Sandy last October.
Governor Chris Christie visited the school on the first day to help welcome the district's more than 250 K - 8 students to the renovated facility. The 54,000 square foot school was completely flooded following the Superstorm, damaging interior finishes and furniture throughout the school.
Robert L. Craig School was one of seven damaged schools in New Jersey that was not able to reopen by the end of the 2012 - 2013 school year. Six of those schools are now open for the 2013 - 2014 school year.
