Minnesota’s governor canceled Monday classes for schools statewide, citing dangerously cold temperatures.

The extreme cold also will grip North Dakota, but the decision to hold or cancel classes will be local.

“School district administrators respect parents’ and guardians’ decisions regarding their children’s safety,” North Dakota State Superintendent of Public Instruction Kirsten Baesler said. “That choice is ultimately up each family.”
