Batten down the hatches - Superstorm Sandy is headed our way

Boston Public Schools will be closed Monday, and non-essential employees will be asked to remain home from City offices. The Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) Curtis Hall, Hyde Park, Paris Street and Tobin Community Centers will be open tomorrow from 7:30AM to 6PM to provide a safe and secure location for parents to bring their children in light of the BPS closure. Other BCYF centers will open only in the event of an emergency that necessitates it. More details here:

The Mayor’s 24-Hour Hotline at 617-635-4500 is managing requests related to the storm including downed trees and power lines; follow @notifyboston for updates.
