Here is some information for parents:

We're getting a lot of questions about when schools are closed due to weather.  Here is the link to this information on our web site:  http://www.mmsd.org/weather.htm 
Following is the paragraph specifically addressing the issue of cold weather:
When schools are closed because of extreme cold
Our policy is to close Madison schools if the National Weather Service issues a wind chill WARNING for Dane County for the time just before the school day begins. Schools will not necessarily be closed if there is a wind chill ADVISORY for the county. (Thresholds from National Weather Service)

Please let us know if you have additional questions.
