The Cambridge Public Schools are open today.
Typically, we begin monitoring weather reports about 24 hours ahead of an expected storm. We are in constant contact with surrounding towns and with our city’s Public Works officials. We also receive weather reports from the National Weather Service. We collect as much information as possible, including expected snowfall amount, time of snowfall, and our city’s ability to keep streets and sidewalks clear. Then, the superintendent – in this case Dr. Carolyn Turk – and her leadership team makes a decision based primarily on the safety of students and staff to get to and from school.
