Rapid City Area Schools closed Friday due to winter storm

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Rapid City Area Schools will be closed Friday, April 12 due to a late season winter storm.

On Thursday the school administration announced that continued snowfall, wind and icy roads have led to the decision. The school system’s normally scheduled spring break would have began Monday, meaning students will get to enjoy a particularly long break this year.

“To do our part to keep kids safe, we are cancelling school tomorrow,” the RCAS tweeted. “Dr. Simon and the rest of the administration team would like to wish everyone a happy extended spring break. See you on April 22nd!”
