Winter Weather Advisory Policy

Dear principals, family liaisons and secretaries, 

It’s winter in Minne-snow-ta. We never know what to expect. But when our number one job is to protect the safety of our students and staff, we have to be prepared. Help us get the word out about our inclement weather policy. Attached are fliers you can share with our families. Feel free to share this website
Thanks for your help!
