School Closings

School Closing/Delays

  • Weather Alert Information

    Winter weather is inevitable in Minnesota.  In making a decision on school closings, student safety is the first priority.

    School may be closed, delayed, or canceled due to weather conditions.  The decision for a late start/early dismissal, limited bus runs, or full-day closing is made and reported to local radio and television stations listed below:

    Television stations                                         Radio Stations

    WDIO (10)                                                                     WKLK AM (1230) or FM (96.5)

    KBJR (6), CBS (3)FOX 21 (21)                         KDAL AM (610) or FM (95.7)

    It is recommended that you check more than one station for potential late starts, closings, and early dismissals when weather is bad as announcements are made at different times.

    Parents or guardians have the right to keep their children at home if they believe the weather conditions are too severe.
