NEWARK — For the second day in a row, all public schools in Newark will be closed as the city digs out from the crippling weekend blizzard.

The Newark Public School's central office will open at the normal time, but the school board meeting planned for Tuesday at Central High School will be canceled, the department said in a statement on its website.

Snow removal efforts have been so lagging in Newark that residents have taken to the streets to clean streets themselves.
