School Back in Session Tuesday

Students last day slated for June 24.

The unintended long weekend for students at Norton Public Schools has come to an end, as school is planned to be back in session Tuesday.

"We will have school tomorrow unless something unusual happens overnight," said interim superintendent Dr. Christopher Martes. "Our schools are clear of snow and ready to go."

At this point, Martes believes that students will have to make up Friday, even though a state of emergency was declared. With today’s cancellation, the last day of school is scheduled for Monday, June 24. There have been three cancellations altogether, with the third being a result of Hurricane Sandy Oct. 29.

I Highly recommend school closed tomorrow I do not want my kid to be out by the busy Mansfield Ave Road and get hit because your school district says its safe when you don’t even have the bus stops cleaned and hardly any of the side streets have even been touched how are either kids or buses going to get down the roads. SCHOOL SHOULD NOT BE OPEN TOMMOROW Tuesday February 12,2013. For Children’s and parents safety when taking them to school in the morning. The rain made the roads 10 times worse. Thanks for reading the email please take the time to consider my points… From, A worrying Parent

SCHOOL SHOULD BE CLOSED TOMORROW. LIVES ARE AT STAKE HERE. INNOCENT CHILDREN. THE LIVES OF YOUNG ONES. A FULL LIFE AHEAD OF THEM. THE DANGERS OF THE STREETS AND THE CONDITIONS OF THE ROADS ARE UNACCEPTABLE AND DANGEROUS TO ANYONE WHO USES THEM. STAY INSIDE AND OFF THE ROADS AND KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE FROM THE NORTON SCHOOL DISTRICT. OUR CHILDREN MUST BE KEPT SAFE AND OUT OF SCHOOL UNTIL THE ROADS ARE PLOWED AND ROAD CONDITIONS HAVE BEEN DRASTICALLY IMPROVED. THIS IS A DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN. STAY OFF THE ROADS.

I rode by the schools and noticed the sidewalks have not been plowed. I am very concerned for the children that have to walk to school, how will they walk safely? Also, I am worried for the children having to cross rte 123 to get to schools. Do they walk in the streets with high snowbanks and motorists cannot see them?

Children, from my understanding, are now allowed to walk unless a parent has given permission per a posting on another article.
