Boston Public Schools will be closed on Tuesday, Feb. 12 because of the continued cleanup of the Blizzard of 2013 that dropped more than two feet on Charlestown and around the city.
Mayor Thomas Menino's posted the following from his official Twitter account on Monday evening: "Boston Public Schools will be closed Tuesday, February 12. #bosnow #bps"
Shortly afterward, his office released a statement confirming the decision.
“The safety of our students comes first, and schools will remain closed as our snow removal crews work through the night and tomorrow to clear side streets and widen bus routes,” the mayor said in the statement.
Boston Public Schools are also closed next week for February break.
All Boston Centers for Youth and Family community centers will be open on Tuesday, providing a place for youth age six and older to stay while their parents work, the city announced, with the exception of the BCYF Archdale Community Center and the BCYF Flaherty Pool, which is currently under construction.
Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at drop-off for the completion of a short intake form. A full list of locations is available here.
Boston Public Schools’ Family Resource Center, Newcomers Assessment Center, Campbell Resource Center and BPS administrative offices at 26 Court St. will also be open tomorrow.
