Notice on any Additional Full-Day Closures and Make-up Days: With last week’s snowstorm, we have exhausted our two “built-in” snow days for the year. With a lot of Minnesota winter left, we want you to know the procedures should we have any additional full-day closures. If there is another full-day closure on or before February 16, we will use the February 19 staff development day as a make-up day. Any snow days after February 16, we will use June 8 as a student makeup day.
