Natick Public Schools made the call Tuesday night to cancel classes on Wednesday.

According to numerous predictions, Natick was predicted to get anywhere from 3 to 15 inches.

With such a discrepancy, NPS didn't take any chances.

One report from South Natick measured just 4 inches of snow as of 5:41 a.m.

The Natick Police Department reported three crashes since 4 p.m. Tuesday. The worst of which happened on Union Street where a motorist crashed into a guardrail. No injuries were reported.

Do you think NPS made the right call to cancel classes?

Natick officials did call it wrong. However, higher snowfalls were expected. What's wrong with making the call early in the morning, rather than the night b/4? Parents want more notice to arrange child care, etc.?? Hope the kids aren't in school the last week in June!

They shouldn't cancel the schools today, and even the public library was closed until 1, thats ridiculous, and they should have first check in the morning and then decide

They could have waited until the early morning!!! Patience!

Both Needham and Wayland stayed open today. NPS is way too quick to pull the trigger based on a prediction than the actual results.
