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.

Makeup companies are now gearing their products to kids as well. This begs the question…how old should children be before being allowed to buy these products? And should companies be selling them?
