Severe Cold Keeps Students Out Of School Again
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Another day of severe cold is keeping students across Minnesota at home or other warm indoor places - many for a second consecutive day.
The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning as extreme cold and brisk winds pushed subzero temperatures to the 35 to 50 below range.
Parents with school-aged children are making alternative arrangements as schools across the state remained closed. When school is canceled in Minneapolis and surrounding districts, the YWCA allows students enrolled in before- and after-school programs to stay all day.
Some Minnesota school districts are opening their fee-based programs so kids have a place to go during the day Tuesday. The city of Minneapolis is opening all 47 recreation centers at noon, three hours early.
