Tell Us: Do You Think School Should Have Been Cancelled in Norton?
What are your thoughts on the Norton Superintendent's decision not to cancel school?
While some residents are still digging themselves out of Blizzard Nemo, interim superintendent Dr. Christopher Martes says that school is in session.
Some nearby school districts such as Attleboro, Mansfield and Taunton have cancelled classes. Some parents and many students believe Norton should follow suit due to some back roads and sidewalks still covered in snow.
"Newcomb Street is in terrible shape, Newland not much better," said Norton mom Allison Plante Keaney on Facebook. "I am really uncomfortable with my 1st grader riding the bus with these road conditions. Add a layer of freezing rain and it's not good."
Not everyone is against the decision, however. The announcement illicited a series of cheers from many parents.
"It sounds good to me, but my son wanted to know if they could hold off school until after February vacation," said Lisa Downey Sheedy on Facebook. "My response.... That's wishful thinking!"
