These Green Bay-area schools will be closed Wednesday, or on a 2-hour delay because of winter storm

GREEN BAY — The Election Day winter storm brought wind, snow and rain, making roads slippery as temperatures hovered around freezing. With that, school districts canceled classes and after school activities Wednesday.

The Green Bay area got about 5 inches of snow on Tuesday and some more early today. The area is still under a winter storm warning until 1 p.m. Wednesday as another inch or two is expected during the day, according to the National Weather Service. The heavy, wet snow combined with wind gusts up to 40 mph caused power outages in the area.

Green Bay's Aldo Leopold K-8, Franklin Middle and Webster Elementary closed Wednesday due to power outages affecting 76,000 Wisconsin Public Service customers.

The following school districts in greater Green Bay will have a two-hour delay today:

  • Green Bay

  • Howard-Suamico

  • De Pere

  • West De Pere

The following school districts that have canceled Wednesday classes and after-school activities:
