Medford Patch will keep you updated with the latest information on what's happening as the city continues to clean up from one of the biggest blizzards in recent memory.
Medford Public Schools are closed once again Tuesday. In a statement released Monday afternoon, officials are hopeful enough snow-clearing work can be done Tuesday to allow schools to open again Wednesday.
"The DPW is cleaning bus stops (Monday) and will continue to do so (Tuesday)," according to a statement from the city. "In addition, they will continue to knock down high mounds of snow for the safety of children walking to school and for those who wait for the bus to get into work."
Starting at 4 p.m. Monday, crews began work to clear snow off the roofs of school buildings.
"All school events will be rescheduled with adequate public notice so important activities will continue once this emergency situation is over," the school department said Monday.
The city's emergency parking ban remains in effect, according to Medford Police. The list of city streets where parking is banned is available here.
Police are asking residents to clear their sidewalks for children so they can get back to school on Wednesday.
"Medford Fire Dept. requests that you adopt a hydrant and keep it free of snow to ensure access in fire emergency," police said in a tweet Monday.
The city also said trash removal will stay on its normal schedule this week.
The Monday statement from the city concluded with this:
We want to thank everyone for their tremendous cooperation and understanding during this historic and dangerous storm. Medford fared very well due to the commitment and dedication of Medford’s public employees working together with our residents.
