Closings/Delays

NO SCHOOL and DELAYED OPENING INFORMATION

It is the School Committee’s policy to close schools when the weather conditions are so severe as to make it a safety concern for the buses and for children walking to and from school.  When a decision has been made to CANCEL or DELAY the opening of school, parents will receive an automated message from our Connect-Ed telephone messaging system.  Announcements will also be broadcast on the following TV and radio stations:

 

Channel 4 TV News & WBZ Radio 1030 AM

Channel 5 TV News – Announcements are Posted HERE

Channel 7 TV News & WRKO Radio 680 AM
