Cold, hard decisions
Over the last 16 years, Red Wing Supt. Karsten Anderson said he has never closed school in any one year as much as he has in the past month.
“By far, the most important factor in closing schools is student safety,” Anderson said.
Red Wing School District has canceled classes five days in January due to cold temperatures and wind chill readings during bus pick-up times. Gov. Mark Dayton mandated the first of those.
