Bitter cold closes Mellen schools, reprieve approaches: DNR leasing turkey ground in 6 counties; more state news
Only one Wisconsin school district that was supposed to open today stayed closed during the bitter cold. Mellen schools in Ashland County were closed because of a broken water main. Several other school systems started classes two hours late -- smaller districts like Lomira, Wabeno, Sparta, and Westby.
The Milwaukee Public Schools and a number of others throughout Wisconsin are still on their holiday breaks. They may or may not re-open on Monday, depending on how cold it gets.
