Attleboro Public Schools to Remain Closed Tuesday
Mayor Kevin Dumas says opening the schools would be a public safety hazard.
Attleboro public school students will have another day off Tuesday. The district will remain closed "to allow for snow removal," according to the website.
"It has been declared a public safety issue for students to walk to school due to the large amount of snow at intersections," said Attleboro Mayor Kevin Dumas, according to a press release. "The city will continue to perform the required work to clear sidewalks and lower snow piles appropriately."
He continued, "Our students' safety is paramount and should be everyone's priority. These are the reasons for the closure at this time. I ask for your continued patience during the proper clean-up of Blizzard Nemo."
Local students have not been to class since Thursday and they have next week off for February break.
Tonight's school committee meeting has also been canceled.
