St. Paul Public Schools has announced that due to the expected winter weather, schools that normally dismiss at 2 p.m. will dismiss at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

All other schools will still dismiss at their regular time. The district said the early dismissal will allow more time between later afternoon routes and could help reduce delays.

Cancellations in the district Tuesday include after-school programs and extra-curricular activities, afternoon Pre-K, afternoon early childhood education, Extended Day for Learning, Flipside, field trips, school events, evening high school, area learning centers, early childhood family education, youth and adult community education, including classes at the Hubbs Center and East Side Hub at St. Paul Harding High School, family engagement activities and the Alternative to Expulsion program.

Athletic event cancellations will be decided on an individual basis. Discovery Club will remain open at all sites until students have been picked up.

Minneapolis Public Schools, meanwhile, announced after-school activities have been canceled Tuesday.

Minneapolis school officials said they expected delays with buses "of up to an hour or more" Tuesday afternoon.
