The trails on the hill behind Raynham Middle School lead right to a parking lot at the bottom. “It proceeds directly into an area where there are vehicles,” said school committee member Gordon Luciano.

School officials even sent an email notifying residents that sledding has been banned in the popular spot. That didn’t stop a crowd from gathering there during a snow day Thursday.READ MORE: Service Resumes On Green Line Hours After Crash, Operator On Leave
