Dayton closes Minnesota schools Monday, ahead of cold
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton moved Friday to cancel all public school classes statewide on Monday because of dangerous weather, the first such closing in 17 years.
"The safety of Minnesota's schoolchildren must be our first priority," Dayton said in a statement. The National Weather Service is forecasting the lowest temperatures in at least a decade Monday, with air temperatures that could reach as low as -30 degrees and high temperatures only reaching the minus teens.
