WE WEATHERED THE STORM!!! Hurricane Sandy or “Frankenstorm” as it was nicknamed, certainly packed a punch in our area. MKCCC was closed for a couple of days since our building lost power but we are proud to say that we were back up and running as early as Thursday, November 1st in large part thanks to our wonderful and committed teachers and staff! We hope you have all recovered from the disruption and now is a good time to think about preparing for future storms. Did you stock up on water and non-perishables? Did you have enough batteries and flashlights? Did you have a battery-powered radio to listen to updates if you were without power for a prolonged period? Did you realize that text messaging was the most reliable use of your cell phone when cell service was spotty? Be sure to visit www.ready.gov for some additional tips on how to be prepared for such emergencies.
