Schools across Wisconsin cancel classes again
MILWAUKEE (AP) — It’s another day off for students across Wisconsin. But, this time it’s not the snow and wind but the dangerously cold temperatures which have administrators canceling classes.
The state’s largest district, Milwaukee Public Schools canceled classes for a third straight school day Tuesday. Students in Madison are off as well. Some school districts, including Mauston and Mineral Point, have also called off classes for Wednesday because of the extremely cold temperatures.
Lows Tuesday night are expected to drop to 20 below zero (-6.6 Celsius) with wind chill temperatures of minus 50 (-45.5 Celsius) by early Wednesday. The high on Wednesday will only reach the negative teens.
