Stoughton Public Schools CLOSED Monday, February 11 for Storm Cleanup
The Stoughton Public Schools will be closed Monday, February 11 as cleanup continues from a storm which dumped more than 30 inches on the town.
Looks like a three day weekend became a four day weekend.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Marguerite Rizzi informed Stoughton Patch that schools will be closed in Stoughton on Monday, Feb. 11, 2013 as cleanup continues from a storm which dumped more than 30 inches on the town over the weekend.
Dr. Rizzi announced the decision shortly after 12:15 p.m. on Sunday.
Dr. Rizzi said that the school and DPW crews can't have all the school areas clear before Monday. A drive around town Sunday morning showed that while significant progress had been made in clearing nearly 3 feet of snow from some of the schools, the cleanup process was just starting at others.
According to WBZ, Stoughton had one of the highest snowfall totals in the state.
When asked if she anticipated if school would be open Tuesday, Dr. Rizzi replied, "one day at a time, but yes."
School was also closed Friday, Feb. 8 in anticipation of the blizzard's afternoon arrival. Monday will mark the third weather-related closing of the 2012-2013 school year. There are five snow days built into the school calendar each year.
The Stoughton DPW will be picking up trash Monday. All trash must be out by 7 a.m. The DPW reminds residents that the people picking up the trash are the same people who are still doing snow removal.
