Inclement Weather Policy

It is rare that the Governor will close state agencies including the MDE due to inclement weather. If MDE closes all scheduled agency functions and meetings will be cancelled. In the event of a severe weather emergency, the advisory meeting cancellation policy will be consistent with the Roseville Area School District closure policy. School closing announcements for Roseville District # 623 are announced on WCCO Radio, WCCO-TV, KMSP-TV, KSTP-TV and KARE-TV by 6:00 a.m. on the day of the weather event.
