Winter in Minne-snow-ta

Winter
Winter weather is here, and it will stay for a while. Rarely, we may have to close school to help ensure the safety of our students and staff. If we do, we will let you know as soon as possible by phone, text, social media, and website or through your local news station. Call us at 612-668-3400 to update your contact information. Check out our inclement weather policy to know more about why we might cancel school. Our schools provide students with a safe and stable place to learn. We understand that canceling school may cause some families hardships related to finding child care. We consider closing school when:
➤ Wind chill is at ‐35°F (-37°C) or colder at 6:30 a.m.
➤ More than 6 inches of snow falls in 12 hours
➤ More than 8 inches of snow falls in 24 hours
 
We try to tell parents:
➤ By 6:00 p.m. the day before the cancellation, OR
➤ By 5:30 a.m. the day of the cancellation
