MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Students in the Twin Cities are returning to school Wednesday after two days off in the aftermath of one of Minnesota’s biggest snow storms.
St. Paul Public Schools Superintendent Valeria Silva defended her decision to cancel classes Tuesday for a second day, a move that was criticized by Mayor Chris Coleman. Silva said she “can’t apologize for trying to ensure a student’s safety.”
Coleman said the decision placed an undue burden on parents.
In Minneapolis, a spokesman for Mayor R.T. Rybak tells Minnesota Public Radio News that the mayor would support whatever decision was made.
