Boston schools will open Monday, Mayor Wu says; Snow emergency set to lift at 6 a.m.

Boston schools will be open Monday, Mayor Michelle Wu said at a post-blizzard press conference Sunday afternoon.

"Even though our roads are clear, we really need everyone's help to dig out the sidewalk in front of your home and in front of your property — especially so that our young people can access bus stops [and] walk to school," Wu said.

The city's snow emergency and parking ban will end Monday at 6 a.m. Parking space savers must be removed 48 hours after the snow emergency lifts.

Jascha Franklin-Hodge, Boston's chief of streets, said work is underway to clear more snow.

"For roads and our bike lanes, our goal is to push the snow as close back to the edge of the curb as we can. But that takes time, it takes multiple passes, and so that's really been the focus today," Franklin-Hodge said.

The blizzard dumped almost two feet of snow in Boston. The 23.6 inches that fell at Logan Airport on Saturday ties Feb.17, 2003, for the most snowfall ever recorded in the city in a single day.
