ANN ARBOR – Ann Arbor Public Schools will be closed on Wednesday due to a winter storm expected overnight.

Ok, Ann Arbor, tomorrow's commute may be tough, but we can do this! Let's refresh:— Ann Arbor Police (@A2Police) February 26, 2020
✔️ Clear ALL snow off your car
✔️ Slow down
✔️ Leave extra room between cars ahead
✔️ Disconnect the internet so the kids have to spend the snow day watching daytime TV, like we did.
