Town Manager Barbara Gilbert said that the town and Schools Superintendent Mark Zito were being cautious by canceling school for Monday.
"All of the parking lots are clear at the schools," Gilbert said. "We want to make sure that we have all means of egress clear and free at all the schools. We want to make sure that all fire exits and walks are free and clear.
"It's a tedious process to be able to clear all those spots and it has to be done by hand. We couldn't guarantee that all of those spots would be done by the morning so with the impending freezing rain being forecast we think it is the wisest decision to close the schools."
