A significant winter storm will arrive Friday afternoon.
Wayzata Public Schools will be dismissing school two hours early on Friday, Jan. 17.
This means your school will dismiss two hours earlier than the normal dismissal time. All students will take the bus home or will need to be picked up at the earlier dismissal time. Home Base and Bright Start will be closed Friday afternoon.
All after-school and evening activities at elementary and middle schools (including the Central Middle School dome and arena) are canceled on Friday.
The National Weather Service is predicting 7-10 inches for Wayzata.
Blowing and drifting snow could be an issue on Saturday.
When big snow comes, the city of Wayzata has a specific protocol it follows.
If the snowfall is two or more inches by 8 p.m., the snow parking regulations kick in at 2 a.m. the following morning.
That means any vehicles parked on unplowed city streets will be tagged and possibly towed.
Residents can call (952) 404-5369 after 8 p.m. to find out if the parking ordinance is in effect.
