Was it the Right Decision to Keep Schools Open Monday?
Both Needham and Wellesley schools are open, with a two-hour delay. Was this the right call for the towns?
After the announcement was made, several parents and teachers took to social media to express their opinions on the decision to cancel school. Here's a sampling of what we saw:
@R2_SNEweather NEEDHAM Ma TOWN OFFICIALS, W/ Part of your TOWN without Power and Sidewalks a mess... Cancel school...No Excuse !
@avens98 Needham is literally the only town that still has school tomorrow. What is this.
@abbyglassenberg Please let there be school tomorrow. Please. #Wellesley
@cjanuzzi wellesley and needham are the only towns not cancelled tomorrow #coincidence?
The mix of opinions isn't just here in Needham and Wellesley, thought. Meanwhile, other schools in the area are closed for the day. However, some residents in Newton towns aren't too happy either.
What do you think? Did Newton school officials make the right call to cancel school Monday? Share your thoughts/opinions in the comments section below.
