UPDATE 7 a.m. Bad weather closes, delays schools in area Monday

Hundreds of schools across Minnesota have announced they will be closed Monday because of the bad weather.

In the Douglas County area, Alexandria, Brandon-Evansville, Minnewaska, Osakis, Parkers Prairie and West Central Area schools are closed. Alexandria Technical and Communtiy College is also closed today.

Because Alexandria schools have already used the two days that are built into the calendar for closing days, it will be necessary for students to make up the Monday school day at the end of the year.
