River Falls schools closed for Jan. 27; Tuesday undetermined

Public and private school within the River Falls School District are closed Monday, Jan. 27, due to extreme wind chills. The cancellation includes both before and after school activities.

The message sent by RFSD Superintendent Jamie Benson, on Sunday morning, said that the cold wind chills are expected to last into Tuesday and that a school cancellation for Tuesday, Jan. 28, will be determined at a later time.

Monday’s closing marks the fourth time, this school year that River Falls’ schools have been cancelled. With the high number of closings, the school year will be extended past the typical school end date in June, similar to last year.
