I just got the too-early morning official call. Looks like there’s no public school in Southborough (and Northborough) today.

That means the Senior Center and any other program that mimics the school’s policy is also closed. The Town House and Southborough Library will also be closed today. (Some Town staff will be available, working remotely from home.)

For those of you keeping track – this is the second snow day this school year, pushing the last day of school to June 22nd.

In mid-November, Superintendent Gregory Martineau posted information about the school’s process for determining when to delay or cancel school. His message noted:

While our goal is to remain in session, the safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. . . Like weather forecasting, the school-closing decision process is not a perfect science.

You can read the FAQs on how and when the decision is made here.

The National Weather Service has updated it’s maps, downgrading the expected snowfall to 6-8″.
