The will be closed again on Tuesday and students aren’t expected to return to school until Friday.
With Tuesday’s closure, it bumps the last day of school back to Tuesday, June 28.
In a message from Assistant School Superintendent Peter Gray at 3:16 p.m. on Monday, he said Sunday night’s below freezing temperature and the increased weight of the snow slowed removal of snow from the school roofs on Monday.
“At this time custodians, firefighters and contracted workers have worked all day to remove snow from all of our schools,” he said, later adding: “Despite the hard work of all involved all schools will be closed tomorrow.”
He said snow removal work would be complete at all schools except the middle school on Tuesday “with the hope they will reopen on Wednesday.”
But at the middle school, the roof is still covered with four to six feet of snow with drifts as deep as eight to 10 feet deep, Gray said in his message to parents.
“Work will continue on the middle school roof with an anticipated completion of Thursday, meaning the middle school should open on Friday,” he said.
That would mean the last day of school would be July 1 at the middle school.
Previously, Gray and School Committee Chairwoman Alexa McCloughan said parents and students would be surveyed about some of the options to make up the missed days. In addition, the School Committee is expected to discuss some of the options when it meets on Thursday night.
