Communities north of Boston canceled school Monday as they continue to dig out from the weekend snow storm.

Medford, Malden and Somerville Public Schools all announced they would cancel school Monday, and snow emergencies remained in effect in all communities.

In official announcements issued Sunday, Medford and Somerville officials said snow emergency declarations would remain in effect indefinitely. Malden Mayor Gary Christenson said the snow emergency there would be lifted at 5 a.m. Monday.

Medford Police warned residents they could face fines if they are caught throwing snow in the street as public works crews continue to clear roadways.

"Current obstacles include people throwing snow back into the street," the announcement said. "This is creating a public safety hazard which is subject to a fine."
