With a significant weather event approaching, in consultation with our local public safety officials, all Whitman-Hanson schools will be closed tomorrow, Monday, February 8, 2016. This includes all PK-12 classes, all morning, afternoon, and evening activities as well as athletics and building use events.
Our local public safety officials have asked us to remind everyone to be aware of children and adults being outside during this type of storm. A heavy wet snow with winds brings downs trees and wires without notice. There is an increased chance during this storm because many trees are currently top heavy and snow packed.
The residential communities of Whitman & Hanson in Southeastern Massachusetts, approximately 20 miles from Boston, have a combined population of 24,000 and a Board of Selectmen - Town Meeting form of government. The W-H School district serves approximately 4400 students.
