Some Schools Closed, Delayed After Overnight Snow

BOSTON — About a dozen Massachusetts schools declared delays or cancellations Tuesday morning, following a brush with winter weather overnight. The closings list is here.

Up to 5 inches of snow fell in southeastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod, while points north and west of Boston got only up to an inch.

“A little burst of snow came through, then everything became very progressive,” said meteorologist Mark Rosenthal. “The storm developed too far offshore, and it’s ‘Goodbye and good luck.’ ”

There were reports of some slippery spots on the road, but the MBTA and Logan Airport reported no snow-related problems.

    Fiv3e incehs? Are y7ou serious? And what keeps the t4eacherws and students from attending school? Is it a poor program of snow xclearning and removal- for which eastern Massachusetts if famous- is it the fear of litigation that it the #1 spot on every Superintendent’s prioroty list? Is it the lack of respect for our children that gets sidewalks and roads safely cleared in time for the opening of school? I must say that a student gets a message when school is cancelled: A fine example of this is the attitude among the Wayland High School students in the 90′s and the Framingham Schools in the 90′s. It’s time for these towns to use use side walks. It’s time for these towns to get their birgets in line so that, in the case of Framingham, a student in the sicth grade must not walk a mile and a half to get to school each morning. (It was on her walk home from Cameron Middle School on Elm Street that my eleven year oled daughter was abducted and gang raped) and this ludicrous haphazared lcosing of schools has got to stop because this teaches more than anything the student is asked to copy from the b oard that day. If the weather is too severe and makes a parent uncomfortable then the parent should have the right to keep the student home. As for Framingham, 95% of it’;s students are bused so that it can claim to be cultureally diverse and thus gather federal funds. You;re wimps and where President Bush humiliated himself with “No Child Left Behond”” Massachusettsw school continue to do this. If yuoui were to visit the schools who were sb=nowed out today you would find a skeleton s=crew of the bnest teachers and administratorsw who decided to go to work anyway. The same skeleton crew of students would chose to be there as well.
