Wayland Public Schools Superintendent Paul Stein has made the decision to re-open schools at the regular times on Monday, Feb. 11, after closing them on Friday, Feb. 8, ahead of a forecasted snow storm.
According to an announcement, Stein consulted with Wayland's Department of Public Works and was told the buses would be able to navigate the town's roads though many still need to be widen.
Because not all the town's sidewalks have been plowed, Stein encouraged each parent to assess his/her child's walking path to school if that applies.
"Should they feel that it is not safe to walk, please consider driving your children to school," Stein's announcement reads.
Stein explained that he considered delaying the opening, but with rain and snow in the forecast at about 9 a.m., ultimately decided it was better to get the children to schools on time.
