Mpls., St. Paul Schools Cancel Classes

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Students attending public schools in Minneapolis and St. Paul are getting another day off of school Tuesday following Saturday’s blizzard that made travel so difficult, according to spokespersons from each city.

Classes and all other activities had been canceled Monday because of snow and cold. Both cities gave the same reasons for this closure, and said again all classes and activities are canceled. However, a meeting of the Minneapolis Board of Education will continue as planned.

Driving continues to be difficult on many side streets in both cities and WCCO-TV Meteorologist Chris Shaffer forecasts a high of 8 degrees Tuesday. An inch or two of more snow is also expected Wednesday, though temperatures will be warmer.

    sorry guys but I miss the snow…I moved down to Richmond va 2 years ago and these folks freak out with just a dusting. last year we got 14 inches of snow and schools were closed for a week. also these are the worst drivers in america!

      In Texas they had 1 inch of snow and only one professor showed up at the college … no students. The professor had lived in Minnesota prior to moving to Texas.

    Dear Minneapolis and Saint Paul: Get your act together and get the roads plowed. This is ridiculous. Another prime example of how inefficient and ineffective government is!

    Both Mayors need a political history lesson . . . Michael Bilandic was the mayor of Chicago in 1978-79 who famously failed to clear the snow from the Windy City’s streets in the bitter winter of 1978-79. He lost his job the next November to Jane Byrne, who ran on a Snow-Plow Ticket promising to clear the streets the next time it snowed.

    My next vote goes to the snow plow party!

    I wonder if the schools would be closed for a fourth day if this storm would have come on a Monday instead…..
