Closing system

Schools in Madison, Middleton-Cross Plains, Sun Prairie, Verona among many closed Tuesday due to weather | local education

School districts announced closures for Tuesday as a powerful storm system delivered freezing rain and sleet to southern Wisconsin Monday through Tuesday.

Madison, Middleton-Cross Plains, Sun Prairie and Verona were among many school districts closing buildings and canceling after-school activities for Tuesday, according to district announcements and websites.

The Madison School District said in an email that classes, all student events at schools and in-person MSCR programs, athletics and other evening activities have all been canceled for Tuesday.

In Middleton-Cross Plains, high school students will complete school work remotely while elementary and middle school students will treat Tuesday as a regular day off, the district said in a statement. Sun Prairie students will not have virtual instruction because devices are not brought home daily, the district’s website said.

Southern Wisconsin is expected to have a quarter-inch of ice by the time the storm moves later Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
