No School Monday
The Blizzard of 2013 prompts a second day of no school for students in East Greenwich and most of Rhode Island.
There will be no school for East Greenwich public school students Monday, Feb. 11.
Power has been restored to much of the town, but as of 4 p.m. Sunday, both Meadowbrook and East Greenwich High School remained without power.
In the recorded phone message that went out to families, Supt. Victor Mercurio said, "Due to power outages associated with the storm, there will be no school Monday."
Even if power had been restored, however, Town Manager Bill Sequino had said opening the schools might not have been safe, with roadways still clogged with snow. On Monday, town DPW crews will be widening the roads, making it easier for cars, buses, and pedestrians.
