Tornadoes in Massachusetts

How did the Worcester Public Schools fare?
(with thanks to Superintendent Boone for her update this evening)
Most of the kids were home by the time the storms came through. Two exceptions: the Roosevelt after school program kept the kids until the storm passed; they headed home around 6:30. Also, some Flagg Street kids were coming home from Boston on a field trip and spent the storm at a rest stop in Framingham. All made it back safely and were picked up by their parents.
Superintendent Boone has offered assistance to the superintendent of the Springfield Public Schools, Alan Ingram.

(And yes, Worcester does have school tomorrow. The governor has asked that superintendents in AFFECTED communities call off school. That's not Worcester.)

The previous post puts it all in perspective. Thank you for it!
