Bitter Cold Could Mean More Time Off For School Kids
School administrators in Illinois say they're closely monitoring the forecast to decide whether to cancel or delay classes because of bone-chilling weather that's expected to hit the state. The cold is coming as many students are preparing to return to school following holiday break.
The National Weather Service says air temperatures below zero will be accompanied by dangerous wind chills Monday and Tuesday.
School district officials are surveying the forecast. But they say cold temperatures don't necessarily mean school closures. That's because there's no statewide standard on how cold is too cold to attend classes.
