General weather-related school closing information
The safety and well being of students and staff is our top priority and the decision to close school is no simple matter.
Before deciding to close school due to extreme winter weather conditions, Saint Paul Public Schools Superintendent Valeria Silva consults with a variety of experts both inside and outside of the district. Our commitment is to keep families, staff and the community informed of weather-related school closings and cancellations.
Please note that we continually monitor the forecast from the National Weather Service in order to make the best decision for students, staff and families. Additionally, delayed start times are not logistically possible in Saint Paul Public Schools.
In the event that school is canceled due to severe weather, the school district will contact families and staff in various ways.
