updated: Schools close Monday due to icy roads
Ann Arbor Public Schools and most other Washtenaw County schools will be closed Monday due to road conditions.
In Ann Arbor, parents were notified at about 5:45 a.m. by email and automatic phone call.
"Roads are icy, especially along the unpaved and rural roads," said district spokesperson Liz Margolis in an email to AnnArbor.com.
Other districts in Washtenaw County that planned to close by 6 a.m. include: Saline, Ypsilanti, Willow Run, Whitmore Lake, the Washtenaw Intermediate School District, Chelsea, Dexter, Lincoln, Milan and Manchester.
Nearby districts like Van Buren Public Schools in Belleville, Clinton, Pinckney and Brighton also closed.
Later additions to the list include: Ann Arbor Christian, Ann Arbor Learning Community, Calvary Christian, Central Academy, Daycroft Montessori, Emerson, Father Gabriel Richard, Eastern Washtenaw Multicultural Academy, Early College Alliance, Greenhills, Hebrew Day School, Huron Valley Catholic, Michigan Islamic Academy, Rudolf Steiner, Spiritus Sanctus, St. Francis of Assisi.
The districts were among about five dozen to announce closings early Monday, according to a report on WDIV-TV. That number climbed to more than 120 by 6:30 a.m.
The day off gives many kids a four-day weekend, since all local districts except Ann Arbor closed on Friday due to snow.
