After nearly three weeks off, Two Harbors and Silver Bay students returned to their classrooms on Wednesday.

A scheduled two-week vacation was extended thanks to the bitter cold on Monday and Tuesday of this week. Governor Mark Dayton ordered all public schools closed on Monday and the district made the call on Tuesday to keep kids at home, too.


“The governor has set the bar and that’s when we hit the -50 wind chill,” Superintendent Bill Crandall said.
