Many Schools Closed Across The Midwest Monday

Schools across KELOLAND are closed Monday as the mercury plummets to the lowest level in more than 15 years.

More than 200 school districts are opting to keep students warm at home, including Sioux Falls, Aberdeen, Yankton, Watertown, Brookings, Brandon Valley and Mitchell. Rapid City has a two-hour late start. View all our closures online.

Many districts in Iowa and Nebraska will keep their doors closed due to the dangerously cold temperatures, as well.

The wind chill in parts of Iowa are expected to be as cold as -55. Many school officials decided that would be too cold to have students standing outside waiting for buses.

Monday’s high in Sioux Falls is expected to be 10 below zero with wind chills in the -40 to -50 range.
