    Dozens of parents packed a meeting on Long Island Wednesday night to learn more about the temporary closing of a Cedarhurst school after Sandy.

    Lawrence High School in Cedarhurst is expected to remain closed for at least two months while workers fix damage caused by Sandy, expected to cost $10 million.

    The school closed abruptly Tuesday after workers discovered electrical wires corroded by seawater. 

    School officials plan to move the high school students to Lawrence Middle School, where parents are unhappy about the decision. 

    "They're gonna be taking these courses with high school students? That's impossible," said Sandra Schunk, a parent of a Lawrence Middle School student. 

    Officials said some of the middle school students will be moved to elementary schools to make room for the high school students.
