It's starting to pile up out there, B-B-E is closing at 1 today

A north-bound snow plow on County Road 26 north of Brooten - photo taken at noon today.

The buses will load students at both the B-B-E elementary and high school at 1:00pm today. I traveled on Highway 71 near Elrosa at around 11:30 today, and it was already getting a little hairy. On a south-bound trip on county roads north of Brooten, it got progressively worse around noon.

We just might get the 3-5 inches of snow that I've heard on the forecasts. Yuck!

Remember to be careful out there and also to look out for your neighbors if they have young children going home without a parent available right away. That's what community is all about!

By the way, the make up school day for the snow day last week (Thurs, April 11) will be on Monday, April 29. The last day of school at B-B-E is still Friday, May 31...hopefully it can remain that day!!!!

I also heard that Minnewaska Area schools are closing early as well. Their elementary is closing at 1:30pm, with their 5-12 grade high school closing at 1:45pm.

Also closing early: Sauk Centre at 1:40pm and Long Prairie-Grey Eagle at 1:30pm. I bet most schools will be released early today.
