School Closings Due to Weather

Winter weather is here and it will stay for a while. Rarely, the District may need to close school to help ensure the safety of our students and staff. If school is closed, they will let you know as soon as possible by phone, text, social media, and website or through your local news station. Information is also available by clicking the “School Closings” link on the right hand side of this website.  Contact our school secretary via e-mail (preferred method) at jfreeman@mpls.k12.mn.us or by calling (612) 668-3760 to update your contact information. Check out the District’s inclement weather policy to know more about why school might be cancelled.  A fyer is available by clicking the School Closings Due to Weather title above.
