Stonington Digs Out From Storm

Thursday looked like a normal day of school in Stonington, as buses made their way to pick up students at Mystic Middle School two days after the Blizzard of 2015 paralyzed the southeast corner of the state.

"We told parents we would cancel school for two days because we wanted them to be sure of the schedule with the storm coming," explained Supt. Van Riley. He said the response to the blizzard was one of the best he's seen.

"Our crews did an unbelievable job. Everyone here loves the schools and they made sure we could get the kids back to school," Riley said.

Although some buses were late picking students up or dropping them off at school due to difficult road conditions, that was to be expected, according to Riley.

Firefighters from Stonington also made the rounds to dig out fire hydrants that were covered by multiple feet of snow following hours of plowing on the roads.
