No student after-school activities today, Tuesday, Feb. 5

MPS will be canceling after-school activities again today, Tuesday, Feb. 5. All student after-school activities are canceled this afternoon, including Early Childhood Family Education classes (ECFE) and athletic practices. Programming that will continue includes:

  • Athletic competitions. Families should check with their school for updates.
  • Minneapolis Kids will remain open until all children are picked up.
  • Adult evening Community Education classes will continue as scheduled unless otherwise arranged by a teacher.
  • The Board of Education’s Committee of the Whole meeting scheduled for tonight will still take place.

This decision was made to prioritize student safety due to ongoing concerns about road conditions and transportation delays due to snow and ice.

For students who take the bus home, we expect there may be delays of up to an hour or more this afternoon. If you would like to pick your child up rather than use the bus, please work with your school directly to do so. Please also contact your school if you have questions about your student’s bus, as your school will have the most up-to-date information about the location of late buses.

Thank you for your continued support and patience as we work to keep students safe while managing the ongoing challenges presented by the weather this week
