While East Greenwich cleans up after Hurricane Irene and residents slowly regain power, school vacation has been extended yet another day.
School opening has been pushed back a second day to Friday, but as of Tuesday afternoon, several of the town's schools did not have power back, including East Greenwich High School. The School Department's Peirce Street offices were closed and its main 885-3300 number was not operative Tuesday afternoon.
