Sharon has canceled school Monday due to a power outage caused by this weekend's record snowstorm.
NSTAR reported that 3,056, or 45.9 percent, of its 6,652 Sharon customers remained without electricity at 8 p.m. Sunday. At 8 a.m. Sunday, 95 percent of the utility's Sharon customers were in the dark.
"At this time, 87,000 NSTAR customers are without power. Most of the outages are concentrated in our western service territory around the communities of Framingham, Waltham and Walpole; and in the south on Cape Cod," NSTAR said on its website Sunday night.
"Due to downed trees and the severe damage experienced on our system, we're anticipating our clean-up and power restoration work will be a multi-day effort."
Both the Sharon public schools and the Foxborough Regional Charter School announced Monday closings Sunday.
The storm brought heavy, wet snow and strong gusts to the Sharon area, knocking down trees and power lines.
Sharon canceled its Halloween parade, while the Everwood Day Camp canceled its Halloween festival.
At 8:07 a.m., a National Weather Service employee reported Foxborough received 6.5 inches of snow, according to the agency's website.
