Officials in Derby, Middletown and New Britain said schools will be closed for another week, while town crews continue their cleanup efforts.
School will be canceled Wednesday and Thursday and reopen Feb. 19 because Friday and Monday are holidays.
Many of the roads in Derby are only plowed to one lane, which makes it impossible for buses to turn around.
"The width of the roads and sidewalks still need to be taken care of," said Southington Schools Superintendent Dr. Joseph Erardi about the roads in his town.
Erardi said he can't remember having a harder time getting his schools back on its feet.
"Looked real hard at sight lines going in and out of our schools, looked equally hard at emergency doors and exits and paid an awful lot of attention to the parking lots and the spaces that have been eliminated," he said.
Some towns such as East Haven, Hartford, Bristol and Waterbury have already canceled school for Wednesday.
School assess building roofs
During his news conference Monday night, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy advised school officials to clear their roofs.
"Because of the type of storm and the way it hit with the wind velocity, a good deal of the snow had blown off the roof," Erardi said about his school buildings.
Officials from Hartford, West Hartford, Windsor, Tolland, Southington, Meriden, West Haven, New London and Derby said they have not raked their building roofs.
"All our schools are in relatively good, if not excellent, shape right now," Erardi said.
Hamden officials said they are expected to roof rake the middle school Wednesday.
Many of the officials said their roofs are structurally fine, but are having inspectors assess them.
Malloy said there has been a reported 16 barn collapses as of Monday night.
Glastonbury learns from snowstorm of 2011
Officials in Glastonbury were one of the fastest towns to get their students back school.
Children resumed classes on Tuesday and town leaders said it is due to lessons that they learned from a big snowfall two years ago.
"I work at Cumberland Farms, so there's a lot of guys that come in and they say they haven't slept for three days and they've gotten nine hours of sleep since Friday," said Isabele Waring of Glastonbury. "And I'm like I feel so bad for you."
Crews continued to clear sidewalks, remove snow from fire hydrants and cut back snow banks on Tuesday. But students were back in school.
"We'll be glad when spring gets here," said Glastonbury Town Engineer Dan Pennington.
Town crews worked through the height of the blizzard and made two key changes to their approach following the major storms of 2011.
Crews put chains on the plow trucks' tires before the snow got bad and they deployed loaders to fire stations around Glastonbury, which were ready to tow plow trucks out.
"We got stuck too, we were no different in that regard. We had chains on the trucks, but they were still getting stuck," Pennington said. "But the loaders were key in being able to respond quickly and get them out."
Nearly all of the town's roads were cleared by Saturday night.
"We want to weld some hooks to the bumpers of the trucks so we can more easily get a chain on them when they do get stuck during the big storms," Pennington said.
The snow piles are now being taken to the town's parks for storage until they melt.
