    Students finally return to class in Westford, Mass.

    School opens after 4 snow days (Published Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014)

    (NECN: Jennifer Eagan, Westford, Mass.) - Students in Westford, Mass. are returning to class, after missing four days due to the October nor'easter.

    The students have already used four of the five allotted snow days for the school year, and it's only the start of November.

    This may impact future calendar years, and how school snow days are budgeted.

    The town of Westford was hit hard by the storm. On Friday, about 230 National Grid customers were still without power. Because all of the schools have power, students are returning to the classroom.

    For students applying to college for next year, the timing of the storm was incredibly inconvenient. November 1 was the deadline for early admission to most schools. Many colleges have said they will be flexible on the deadline, because of the extreme circumstances.
