NEW CANAAN, Conn. — Schools in New Canaan will remain closed Wednesday as emergency officials continue cleaning up the damage left by Hurricane Sandy.
Word on whether schools will open Thursday will be determined later, school officials said. St. Aloysius School will likely remain closed because it relies on New Canaan school buses to transport its students.
