Willmar, Minn., buses return kids to school Monday, all goes smoothly


WILLMAR — Bad weather forced Willmar school buses to return some children to school rather than drive with them in the country Monday.

Schools closed early Monday because of blizzard conditions caused by strong winds and drifting snow. Students wouldn’t have been in school on Presidents Day, except the district was making up for a Feb. 11 snow day.
