    A number of Massachusetts towns affected by the recent nor'easter have cancelled school for Monday.

    All Norwell public schools will be closed Monday due to storm damage, according to the police department on Sunday.

    As of Sunday morning 97-percent of the town was without power.

    Braintree Schools announced on Saturday that two schools will be closed on Monday due to the damage that was done from the nor'easter.

    Ross Elementary and South Middle School both have roof damage from the storm.

    "The school cancellation will give us an opportunity to make repairs and further assess the damages sustained to the roofs," Frank Hackett, Superintendent of Schools said in a statement. "The cancellation includes all Ross Kindergarten students, including those who attend Ross and those who attend Monatiquot School Kindergarten Center (MSKC)."

    A roofing contractor and structural engineer will be at both schools and will determine whether or not they will need additional days to complete the repairs.

    School officials are hoping that decision can be made by late Sunday afternoon.

    All other schools in Braintree will be open Monday.

    All public schools in Weymouth will be closed Monday, as multiple buildings are without power and the Weymouth High School is currently being used as a regional Red Cross shelter.

    Weymouth administrative and school offices will be open, however.

    Duxbury public schools will be closed Monday after much consideration, according to school officials. Although power is slowly being restored around town, officials say there is still significant concern about downed power lines, travel conditions and general public safety.

    All Rockland public schools will be closed Monday, as well.
