Mayor Gray has closed the District government Tuesday, October 30.   See the release here in the mayor's news room.   Highlights of Tuesday in DC:

  • A list of shelters is available on the D.C. Government’s Hurricane Sandy website. Rides to shelters are available until conditions are too dangerous. Call 311 for a ride. The shelters provide for basic human needs for those exposed to dangerous conditions (such as homeless people) or in the event homes are not habitable. Shelters provide cots, blankets and water.

DC Public Schools have been cancelled for Tuesday.   All sports and afterschool activities are also cancelled.   OLA has provided the information in Spanish:

Compartiendo la última información de las Escuelas Públicas de DC:
Todas las Escuelas Públicas y oficinas administrativas estarán cerradas el día de mañana, martes 30 de octubre. Empleados de las escuelas públicas que no sean considerados personal indispensable o imprescindible (essential personnel) no se tienen que presentar a trabajar. Todas las actividades extracurriculares y eventos deportivos que han sido programados estarán cancelados también.

Por el momento, el personal indispensable no necesita reportarse a trabajar el día martes tampoco. Una vez que lo peor de la tormenta pase, el personal imprescindible recibirá información, por parte de sus supervisores, sobre donde reportarse para evaluar posibles daños y empezar a coordinar la apertura de las escuelas y el regreso a sus actividades normales.

Early voting sites are also closed Tuesday, October 30.   Residents should visit the Board’s website to monitor the status of early voting sites.

Finally, the DC Council will be closed October 30 and they have moved their COW and leg meeting to November 1 although the November 1 schedule does not include those two meetings.
