For safety reasons, Town Policy prohibits the CEO from doing inspections during inclement weather.  If Acton Elementary is closed due to weather, no inspections will be conducted.  Please make certain that the site including walkways, driveways and private roads are cleared to safely enter the site.  If an inspection cannot take place because the site is unsafe, a reinspection fee will be charged.  It is the property owner's or contractor's responsibility to call to reschedule
