Decision to Close or Delay:
The decision to delay or to close schools involves a range of important factors. The superintendent consults 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 travelling in order to reach Westborough.    

Communication of Closures and Delays:
The superintendent will try to communicate the decision by 5:45am to 6:00am so that people can plan work and childcare accordingly.
A phone message will be sent to the phone number selected in iParent for cancellations or delays and the e-mail will be sent to both parents' addresses. 

Cancellation and delay information will also be broadcast on:

 WBZ TV Channel 4 and WBZ Radio AM 1030

 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).  

Delay and Cancellation Details:
In the case of a one-hour delay there will be no AM Preschool. Buses will run on a schedule that will be one hour later than the normal pick-up time.  In the case of a delay, the AM: Extended Day Program (EDP) is delayed by one hour as well.  Visit the website for updates on after school and evening activities. 

In the case of a two-hour delay there will be no AM Preschool. Buses will run on a schedule that will be two hours later than the normal pick-up time.  In the case of a delay, the AM: Extended Day Program (EDP) is delayed by two hours as well.  Visit the website for updates on after school and evening activities. 

In the case of a delayed opening, both REMOTE and HYBRID learning programs will follow the delay. 
As a result of our success with implementing remote learning, we will be incorporating the use of Remote Learning Days into our repertoire of options when there is inclement weather. Options for dealing with dangerous winter weather conditions will include cancelling school for the day, delaying the start of in-person learning, or issuing a Remote Learning Day.

  • A No School Snow Day will need to be made up in the spring.  In the case of a cancellation, school will be closed for both Hybrid and Remote Learning Programs and all Extended Day Programs are cancelled (AM & PM) and all before and after school activities are cancelled.
  • A Remote Learning Day will operate like the “at home remote” days we ran right after Thanksgiving break, except that ALL teaching staff (teachers, paras, tutors) and all students will work from home.  They will provide live instruction via Zoom and/or Google meet.   Remote Learning Days will count as an official school day and do not need to be made up in the spring.
