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.

The Old Farmers Almanac said that it was going to be a snowy winter this year – but this is getting to be a bit too much. We’ve gotten an entire winter’s worth of snow in one month! It was nice to have a little snow to make it a “White Christmas,” but then the following weekend was the first big snow storm of the winter. That was alright, since it was the weekend and we had plenty of time to dig out before the New Year and the start of school after winter break. We made it through the first week of January unscathed, but then Old Man Winter started his onslaught of snow and cold throughout the rest of the month. I’ll admit, the first snow day was fun watching the snow come down – a blizzard! The kids went out and built a snowman during…
