Minneapolis Public Schools cancels all activities and athletics for Dec. 16 & 17
 
MINNEAPOLIS – Minneapolis Public Schools has canceled all student after-school and evening activities scheduled to occur on Dec. 16 due to forecasted severe weather in our area. Minneapolis Kids after-school child care will remain open until all students are picked up.
 
All district activities and events, including athletics, are also canceled for Saturday, Dec. 17.
 
The primary criteria we consider when making weather-related decisions include:
  • The safety and well-being of students and staff
  • Severity of the weather (extreme cold, flooding, etc.)
  • The ability for buses and cars to travel safely
  • Timing of weather
