so if there is a snow emergency, that means no school right.

@rebe, that decision has not yet been made. Stay tuned.

Looks like you can park at school parking lots starting tonight so the city can get the cars off the streets.

The Waltham schools will be closed on Friday. I just saw the announcement on the Patch. Lucky kids!

Can we get confirmation that we can park in the municipal lots starting tonight? Would rather just move my car now than head out in the mornining...

AEG, I suggest you call the Waltham Police at 781-314-3600 to double check. But, tonight, normal parking rules apply. The snow-based rules apply starting tomorrow.
