A major snow storm is expected to drop a foot or more of snow in parts of Massachusetts late Wednesday night into Thursday, forcing some school districts to cancel school or use remote learning programs.

Because of the pandemic, most school systems have integrated some form of remote learning for students, and districts are hoping to use those programs as an alternative to traditional snow days this winter.

However, the districts that are opting for remote learning days during inclement weather also acknowledge that power outages and Internet connectivity issues could be a concern. Many districts say they’ll plan to make decisions on a storm-by-storm basis and will only have a remote learning day if their community is equipped to do that.
