Sub-zero wind chills have school districts watching temps

Mukwonago Area School District, Kettle Moraine School District

Officials in the Kettle Moraine and Mukwonago school districts are watching temperatures drop, but don't anticipate closing school because of frigid wind chills at this point.

MASD Superintendent Paul Strobel said a wind chill of -30 degrees or worse presents "increasing danger to continued exposure," which could result in closing school. This is the same criteria used for KMSD Superintendent Pat Deklotz said.

Strobel indicated the weather conditions would be monitored in the morning since "a couple of miles per hour with the wind can make a vast difference." 

Deklotz and Strobel said a decision would be made early in the morning, by 5 or 6 a.m. if schools would have to be closed.
