Many lost everything.

What the kids need is warmth. We near the shore have been living without power and heat for over a week in damp houses. On long beach island, where many of my teachers live, it is worse…they have no water or working toilets.. There are many little ones who are poor…about 25% of Long Beach students receive free or reduced priced lunch–kids of day workers. Really needed are socks, gloves, blankets, hats, flashlights, diapers . I have begun collecting at my school. My guess is staten island is similar. Our kids are coming back wed. We expect to have displaced new entrants. Many schools will be closed even longer.
