Cancellations & Delays

JUNE 14, 2024 is the ADJUSTED LAST DAY OF SCHOOL - due to one school cancellation

All Schools, EXCEPT Hastings WILL HAVE A 1/2 DAY ON JUNE 14th.

The last day for Hastings will be A 1/2 Day on JUNE 17th due to lost day from the leaking Roof Collapse Day

Dear Families,

Winter weather is upon us, so I wanted to review procedures for canceling or delaying school.  Planning ahead and being prepared for weather related delays and cancellations will make the winter run smoother.  Please read and review the procedures outlined below. They are also available on our district website by clicking on the snowflake under Quick Links.

The decision to delay or to close schools involves a range of important factors. I consult with the Department of Public Works, the Police Department, and surrounding area Superintendents.  We assess the condition of area local roads and the regional roads that our faculty and staff are traveling in order to reach Westborough.   

I will try to communicate the decision around 5:45 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. so that people can plan for work and childcare accordingly. A phone message will be sent to the phone number stored in PowerSchool for cancellations or delays and an e-mail will be sent to both parents' email addresses through Parent Square.

Cancellation and delay information will also be broadcast on:

 WBZ TV Channel 4

 WCVB TV Channel 5

 WHDH TV Channel 7

 WFXT TV Channel 25

Westborough Cable TV

The Westborough Public Schools District website will display the information (www.westboroughk12.org).
