Dept. Of Education Allowing Superintendents To Close Schools

Posted: Updated:

Minnesota school districts are making their own calls about whether to resume classes Tuesday or keep buildings closed another day.
Governor Mark Dayton won't call off classes statewide for a second day amid dangerously cold conditions.
In a letter to districts, the education commissioner says superintendents should be mindful about health hazards from exposures to the below-zero temperatures as they make decisions.
Mankato Independent School District 77 announce earlier this afternoon that they will be closed on Tuesday.
There are around 40 schools in the area that have made the decision to remain closed or have a late start.
You can find that list on our website KEYC.com.
Monday was the first blanket closure of all public schools in the state in 17 years.
