    Lawrence Public Schools have cancelled classes for Monday in the wake of the series of gas explosions that hit the area last week.

    In an announcement on Twitter on Sunday afternoon, the school system said "more time [is] needed to restore gas/electric to closed buildings and multiple other facilities in use for emergency services."

    The school system added that it will communicate with the public tomorrow about the status of schools for Tuesday.

    A series of gas explosions in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover on Thursday left one young man dead and forced entire neighborhoods in the Merrimack Valley to evacuate.
