Students at the have a long weekend—there is no school there on Friday, January 20, according to Superintendent of Public Schools Dr. Marguerite Rizzi.
The closing is not weather related (Stoughton received 4 inches of snow overnight according to the DPW)—Dr. Rizzi said it is due to a water main break.
The Superintendent said all other schools in the district will operate on a regular schedule on Friday.
Dr. Rizzi said that at this point she anticipates the Gibbons School will reopen on Monday, January 23.
DPW officials said the break occurred at the driveway leading to the Gibbons School, closing the driveway as crews repair the water main. But, the adjacent Morton St. is not closed, according to the DPW.
