KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Many Kansas City-area school districts canceled classes Friday as high wind and snow combined to make hazardous conditions.

Some of the districts planned to carry on with the day in a remote learning format. Families should check with their individual districts for the snow day plan.

Kansas City, Missouri, Public Schools said later Friday morning that it will have an early release for all students and staff due to winter weather. That includes virtual and distance learning classes, pre-K sites and special programs at the Boys & Girls Clubs and Parks and Recreation locations. All after-school athletic practices also are canceled.
