Schools Close for Extreme Weather

Posted: Updated:

The extreme temperatures and high winds created dangerous weather. That's why Minot Public Schools, as well as many other school districts across the state, canceled classes and Monday activities.

Beginning Sunday evening, schools sent out an automated message to families within the school district informing them of the closing.

While schools have make-up days in their school calendar, they typically don't use them.  The school district hasn't closed for cold temperatures since the late 80s, when the governor canceled classes for an extended period of time.

"It was just a tough weather day yesterday.  It's a tough weather day today.  We just want everyone to be safe. We put safety first in our decision-making process, and we encourage families to make sure that children remain safe," says Superintendent Mark Vollmer.

Public school will have a make-up day June 5, and classes resume tomorrow.
