According to District communications director Sara Thompson, St. Louis Park Public Schools will begin two hours late Feb. 8 because of the forecasted winter weather.

According to the National Weather Service, East Central and Southern Minnesota will have a wind chill advisory tonight until tomorrow morning. In addition, there is a winter storm warning in effect for the metro area through midnight tonight.

The district reached this decision to ensure Park students and faculty are safe while driving to school, according to Thompson.

“Kids Place childcare will begin at 8:30 a.m. and morning Early Childhood classes are cancelled,” Thompson said.

Minnetonka and Edina Public Schools, both neighboring districts to Park, also have a two-hour delay Feb. 8.

Echo will provide an update if any more information becomes available.
