Families and Staff,
Cold weather has arrived in Minnesota and we want to make sure you have the information you need about weather emergency closings, delays, and early dismissals. Please know, decisions to close school are taken very seriously and we use closings, delays, and early dismissals only when absolutely necessary.
If school is closed or released early due to weather-related circumstances, Community Education activities and High School athletics and activities are canceled unless otherwise noted in the emergency message.
Students who leave the district to attend classes at other institutions through programs like PSEO should watch for communication from the institution they attend.
Passages students will follow the Mahtomedi School District delays and closings. For Passages students attending 916 or PSEO, please make sure to check your email and the web pages for delays and closings. If 916 is closed but Mahtomedi is open, students are expected to attend classes at Passages.

Ultimately the final decision whether a student goes to school during a weather emergency rests with the family. If you choose to keep your student home, please call the school's attendance line and the absence will be excused.
