Students in the Stoughton Public Schools probably won't get to see whether or not Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow on Groundhog Day; they get another chance to sleep in.
Stoughton Public Schools are canceled for Wednesday, February 2.
The schools closings were first reported by About Town columnist Mark Snyder.
This marks the fifth snow day of the school year for Stoughton Schools. The school schedule usually only budgets up to five snow days per school year, but according to Dr. Rizzi, the schools can actually have up to four additional snow days this school year beyond Wednesday, without having to alter any of the remaining vacations this academic year (February and April).
When school is canceled, so are after school activities and athletic events. The Stoughton High hockey team and wrestling team were both scheduled to face Canton. No make-up date has been announced for either contest.
Transportation services for the Council on Aging are canceled when school is canceled. The Stoughton Public Library also traditionally opens an hour later, at 10 a.m. when school is canceled. However, call ahead (781-344-2711) or check back here to confirm their opening.
Southeastern Voc. Tech. High School and Foxborough Regional Charter School are also closed on Wednesday.
After receiving about a half-foot of snow on Tuesday, Stoughton will receive a mix of snow, sleet, rain and ice throughout Wednesday, impacting both the morning and evening commute. The storm is set to wrap up early Thursday morning (the overnight hours).
