CTN staff members would like to offer our prayers and thoughts to those schools and parishes severely affected by the devastating storm.

CTN returned to normal operations this week after suffering a weeklong loss of phone service, and complications with transportation and getting to work due, to Hurricane Sandy. Our loss of phone and travel issues pale next to the closing of the 5 schools, and the personal devastation caused by this storm. These schools continue to show strength and solidarity in difficult times.

As you assess your school’s situation, if you find you have no Internet service, please contact CTN. We have found that Clear is working well and we should be able to deploy modems as needed. Contact Paul Cedeno at pcedeno@desalesmedia.org or call (718) 517-3101.
