The cleanup from the Blizzard of 2013 continues today as town schools, government offices and the Hamden Public Library are closed to allow the Public Works Department to continue to remove the 40" of snow that fell between Friday and Saturday.
With today's school closure, the April vacation is eliminated, Supt. of Schools Fran Rabinowitz said.
"We are closed tomorrow which "eats up" the last day of April vacation," she said in an email Sunday.
The district used up its snow days between Super Storm Sandy last fall, several snow days this winter and now the blizzard, which has so far closed school last Friday and today. A decision will be made today as to whether school will open Tuesday.
The district's April vacation was scheduled for April 15-19. The February vacation is next week.
Public Works crews have worked 24/7 since Friday to clear the roads, town officials said. There were 10 crews working Sunday throughout town and 16 additional payloaders from out of state were scheduled to arrive last night, Chief Administrative Assistant Curt Balzano Leng said.
As of Sunday night, 40 percent of the town's roads remained impassable, Leng said.
