Storm meant two days off for Palmer students

Palmer received about a foot of snow during the storm

PALMER, Mass. (WWLP) – The more than a foot of snow that fell on Palmer Tuesday gave students a two-day vacation from school in this eastern Hampden County community.

Since the height of the storm, conditions have improved, and Palmer High School will welcome students back to class tomorrow morning

Town Manger Charlie Blanchard told 22News that the superintendent decided on Monday to close the schools for two days.

“Yes, I think the overall prediction of heavy snowfall was the reason behind that. The superintendent’s responsibility is to make sure the students’ safety is paramount and the decision he felt was necessary,” Blanchard said.

Nearby Pathfinder Regional High School in Three Rivers was to open after a two hour delay Wednesday, but after thinking it over, administrators kept that school closed as well.
