Cold Snap: What You Should Know In Minnetonka

The National Weather Service predicts a low of -26 degrees Fahrenheit over the next couple days. Check here for local delays and closings.

Minnetonka students will enjoy an extra day of winter break Monday thanks to Gov. Mark Dayton’s decision to order a rare statewide cancellation of public schools due to dangerously cold weather.

The National Weather Service predicts a low of -26 degrees Fahrenheit Sunday followed by a high of -17 degrees Monday. Winds of 10 to 15 mph will further add to the bitter cold. Conditions will improve a bit on Tuesday but not much.

All Minnetonka Public Schools school activities will be cancelled Monday. Explorers (childcare) will be open for Explorers Club students who are typically registered on Mondays. Additional communication to Explorers Club families was delivered.

On Sunday and Monday, all Minnetonka Community Education activities are cancelled. 

All Hopkins Public Schools buildings will be closed for the day and all activities are cancelled. Kids & Company and Stepping Stones are closed. There will be no Ready 4 K or Kaleidoscope Preschool, no Early Childhood Family Education, and no Early Childhood Special Education classes. Adult Options (Adult Basic Education and ESL) classes are cancelled. 

The Governor is leaving it up to individual districts to cancel school on Tuesday as well, however, that decision has not yet been made at Minnetonka or Hopkins.
