Mayor Marty Walsh announced Wednesday evening that Boston Public Schools will stay closed for the third day in a row.

“I am confident that our roads are safe and drivable,” Walsh said in a statement, “and that our schools will be clear by tomorrow morning. But, I have grave concerns about the status of our sidewalks and the well-being of students walking to and from their bus stops, or needing to stand in the street when they are waiting for the bus. Our crews will continue to remove snow from the streets and bus stops tonight and our top priority is working with residents and businesses to clear sidewalks to ensure that school will be open on Friday.”

Boston is digging out from a blizzard that dumped two feet of snow on the city.
