Winter Weather

Our schools provide students with a safe and stable place to learn.  We understand that cancelling school may cause some families hardships related to finding child care.

·      Wind chill is at -35 degrees F (-37 degrees C) or colder at 6:30am

·      More than 6 inches of snow falls in 12 hours

·      More than 8 inches of snow falls in 24 hours

MPS tries to tell parents:

·      By 6:00pm the day before the cancellation, OR

·      By 5:30am the day of the cancellation

MPS announces cancellations by:

·      Phone calls

·      Texts
