NEW BEDFORD — Even in the time of remote learning, there is still such a thing as a snow day.

According to a release, New Bedford Public Schools will be closed on Thursday, December 17, as a result of the impending snowstorm.

There will be no in-person classes, and no after school activities; but in addition, there will also be no distance learning/remote sessions occurring either, and no virtual meetings.

“We are using our ‘traditional’ snow day model and there will be no in-person classes and no distance learning/remote sessions occurring,” Superintendent Thomas Anderson said. “This full cancellation is out of concern for the safety of both our students and our staff who must drive in these conditions.”

The school department says adult evening classes scheduled for tonight are not canceled.

New Bedford Public Schools previously announced that all learning will be fully remote next week leading up to the holiday break as well as during the first week back in January.
