GRAFTON, Mass.-- Grafton Public Schools Superintendent James Cummings said schools will be open on Tuesday morning.
The following is from a newsletter sent to parents on Monday:
"Thanks to the great work of our maintenance and custodial crews, along with tremendous help from the Department of Public Works, the schools are cleared of snow. We have power at each building and all town roads are passable. The Department of Public Works is continuing their efforts clearing and widening roadways and plowing sidewalks.
"Tomorrow morning, and most likely all mornings this week, will require extra effort and patience all around. Buses are sure to be running later than usual with the narrower streets and need for extra caution on the part of all drivers. While our parking lots are cleared, we will have fewer open parking spaces than usual, which will certainly present additional challenges. Very high snowbanks in and around our parking lots are going to require extra caution on the part of all drivers and pedestrians.
"Parents and guardians are asked to use their best judgment in regard to students who typically walk to school, seeing that some sidewalks may not be cleared. Monitoring at bus stops will also be especially important given that the snowbanks may hinder the amount of space typically afforded students at bus stops."
