Sandy Closes Beverly Public Schools on Monday

Beverly officials announce school closures due to impending Hurricane Sandy.

Beverly Public Schools announced Sunday evening that all public schools will be closed on Monday due to the expected arrival of Hurricane Sandy.

The announcement came shortly after Gov. Deval Patrick's press conference, urging residents to 'stay home if you can'.

"To help keep the roads clear for emergency personnel and to keep people safe from flying limbs and debris or from down power lines, I am first of all requesting all schools including colleges and early education programs to close Monday, for the safety of students and employees alike," Gov. Deval Patrick said during a press conference Sunday afternoon.

Endicott College, Montserrat College, and North Shore Community College also announced on Sunday afternoon that they will be closed on Monday.
