Be ready for winter weather and canceled classes: MPS releases weather related school closing information!

MPS sometimes cancels classes when winter weather makes it unsafe for students to get to and from school.

MPS will likely cancel classes if the National Weather Service predicts that

  • The wind chill will be -35°F (-37°C) or colder at 6:30 a.m.

MPS will consider canceling classes if the National Weather Service predicts that:

  • More than 6 inches of snow will fall in 12 hours
  • More than 8 inches of snow will fall in 24 hours

Every winter storm is different, so it is possible that classes will still be held even if wind chill or snowfall reaches these limits. The safety and well-being of students and staff is atop priority and the decision to close school is a complex one. We do everything possible to keep schools open, because:

  • Our schools provide students with a safe and warm place to learn.
  • Some students rely on the school district for breakfast and lunch.
  • Some families do not have child care options for their children while they are at work.

MPS will try to notify families by 6 p.m. the day before the cancellation. If conditions have become more hazardous than expected overnight, families will be notified by 5:30 a.m. the day of the cancellation. Here is how you can stay informed:

  • Call us at Henry now to make sure your correct phone number and email address are on file.
  • Check the MPS website or Henry’s website.
  • Follow MPS on Twitter @MPS_News or on Facebook at facebook.com/minneapolis.schools.
  • Watch for closures on local news channels
