CANADENSIS, Pa. (AP) — Two schools closed for more than a week due to a massive police manhunt have reopened in northeastern Pennsylvania.
WNEP-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1CBptlL ) students returned to class Monday at Monsignor McHugh Elementary in Cresco and Evergreen Charter School in Barrett Township.
Hundreds of law enforcement officers are still searching for 31-year-old Eric Frein (freen) in the dense woods surrounding nearby Canadensis.
Authorities say Frein has been on the run since Sept. 12 when he allegedly gunned down one state trooper and wounded another in Blooming Grove.
Some districts canceled classes during the early days of the manhunt because officials didn't want buses traveling through the search area to pick up children.
The Pocono Mountain School District resumed regular bus service Monday, with the exception of a few stops.
