The Oceanport school opened its doors to 38 kindergarten and preschool children after the Monmouth Beach school was closed due to severe storm damage.
Wolf Hill School in Oceanport reopened after Sandy with a slight increase in its population when 38 students from Monmouth Beach took over two classrooms while their school is renovated following storm damage. Although the timeline for getting back into the school is six months, Oceanport Schools Superintendent Andrew Orefice said at the Nov. 20 board of education meeting, "I will be shocked if Monmouth Beach gets back any time soon."

The borough will pay Eatontown $50,000 per year to use its court.
Eatontown is on the verge of finalizing a contract that will allow Monmouth Beach to use the borough's municipal court.

The council asked Jackson if hosting Monmouth Beach's court would overburden the staff. Jackson said the staff would be able to handle…

Work will be done this Fall.
