BPS announces: No school tomorrow

From Hyde Park to Charlestown, kids break out in grins; parents groan.

Officials say it's not the amount of snow, but the timing:

An important factor in this decision is the timing of the snowstorm, with several inches of snow expected to fall during the morning commute. Because safety is the top priority of Boston Public Schools, Mayor Walsh and Superintendent Chang made the decision to close school on Monday.

Boston's community centers will be open 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Bad news, BPS administrative workers: You still have to go in.

I'm seeing caution based on forecasts calling for snow in the morning, so what am I missing?

If Boston cancels school due to the forecast, how are today's students going to be able to tell their grandchildren how they walked ten miles to school and fifteen miles back, in the snow, with only bread bags inside their shoes to keep them dry?

They'll say they had 5% juice on their phone to text and snapchat to walk home with.
