Those sleds will get one more day of use for SK and Prout students, as their schools have cancelled classes for Tuesday.

No School Tuesday for SK, Prout; Delay for URI

5:30 p.m. – The University of Rhode Island just released the following statement via its Facebook account:

DELAYED START: The University plans to hold classes, beginning at 9:30 am on Tuesday, February 12. Crews will continue to work on clearing sidewalks and parking lots throughout the evening. We recognize that campus conditions may not be ideal. Allow extra time to get to class or work on schedule, be cautious, and wear appropriate shoes.

Carpool if possible to help reduce the number of vehicles on campus, and be prepared to use the shuttle system to travel from outer parking lots. The parking ban remains in effect overnight.

4:55 p.m. – Also just across the wire: The Prout School has cancelled classes for Tuesday.

4:40 p.m. – Thanks to more than 3,000 National Grid customers without power as of 4:30 p.m., along with poor road conditions and still tons of snow in the area, the South Kingstown School District is cancelling classes again on Tuesday, Feb. 11.

Decisions have not yet been made for the Narragansett School District and places further south like Chariho and Westerly. North Kingstown has announced that there will be class on Tuesday, as has Rogers in Newport.

About 1,342 customers are without power in Narragansett still. While Charlestown still has 2,065 without power, the other Chariho towns – Hopkinton and Richmond – are under both under 900 customers without power.

We will update this story later tonight if other local districts definitely answer whether they will or will not have classes on Tuesday.
