Governor closes public schools Monday, citing cold weather

Email

Public schools statewide will be closed Monday because of the forecasted dangerously cold weather.

Gov. Mark Dayton made the announcement early Friday in order to give school administrators, teachers and parents enough time to plan for the change.

“The safety of Minnesota’s schoolchildren must be our first priority,” Dayton said. “I have made this decision to protect all our children from the dangerously cold temperatures now forecasted for next Monday.”
