EAST SETAUKET, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — At least eight school districts on Long Island have canceled classes for Monday, in the wake of the blizzard that left more than 30 inches of snow in parts of Suffolk County.

The following school districts confirmed on their Web sites that they will be closed Monday:

• Three Village School District: All schools and offices will be closed, and all after-school activities will be canceled;

• Sachem School District: School is closed and activities are canceled due to dangerous driving conditions;

• Shoreham-Wading River School District: School is closed due to dangerous road conditions, and all before- and after-school activities are canceled;

• Port Jefferson School District: School is closed due to hazardous road conditions;

• Longwood School District: All schools are closed, and all after-school activities are canceled;

• Miller Place School District: All schools will be closed, and transportation to private and parochial schools or out-of-district schools will not be available. All after-school activities are canceled.

• Connetquot Central School District: All schools are closed, and plant and facilities staff will work to get school buildings ready for Tuesday.

Newsday reported that the Mount Sinai School District has also canceled classes for Monday, but the district did not announce the closure on its Web site and no one was available at the district by phone.

Eastern Long Island was among the hardest-hit areas in the blizzard. Hundreds of cars were stranded, scattering the L.I.E. as the storm came on faster than commuters could get home Friday night.

On Sunday, authorities closed the Long Island Expressway in both directions between exits 57 and 73 until about 5 p.m. to clear away the remaining snow.
