With forecasts predicting dangerously cold weather, all K-12 schools will be closed on Monday, January 6. The Governor announced the closing today in order to protect Minnesota schoolchildren. The National Weather Service predicts that most of the state will experience the coldest temperatures in a decade with lows reaching -30 degrees and wind chills predicted to reach as low as -50 degrees. “The safety of Minnesota’s schoolchildren must be our first priority,” said Governor Dayton.
