Dear Superintendents and Charter School Directors,
Tomorrow morning’s temperatures are forecasted to be in the double digits below zero again, with continued wind chill advisories for the entire state until afternoon.
Governor Dayton is leaving the decision about school cancellations for Tuesday to individual school districts. We believe school superintendents are monitoring the temperatures closely and are prepared to communicate with families so they can plan accordingly.

I am grateful for your efforts on behalf of Minnesota children, not only during this challenging week, but every day.
