Metro Area Schools Canceled

OMAHA (KPTM)- All metro area schools are canceled due to wind chills that are expected to reach 30 to 40 degrees below zero.

"We are concerned about kids who walk to school as well as students who are waiting at the bus stops," said Annette Eyman, Papillion La Vista Public Schools.

Area school superintendents kept in touch all weekend long before the decision was made to cancel school for Monday, January 6, 2014.

Elkhorn and Omaha Public Schools had the day off because of a scheduled in service day.
