Lake Orion Public Schools will be closed Tuesday due to the bitterly cold wind chill temperatures forecast for southeast Michigan.

The school closure was announced on the school web site.The Arctic cold temperatures are expected to persist through Wednesday morning. There’s no word yet on whether school will be in session Wednesday.

High school exams will be rescheduled. The school district said:

“Given the high school exam requirements, if school is in session on Wednesday, January 29, there will NOT be a late start.  School will begin at 7:30 a.m. and dismiss at 10:39 a.m. to conduct third and fourth hour exams. If classes do not resume until Thursday, we will follow the same morning exam schedule as Wednesday, with students only attending a half day in the morning.”

Oakland County issued a statement Monday reminding residents to dress in layers if they must be outdoors, not to keep their pets outdoors for any extended periods of time, maintain vehicle gas tanks over half filled, keep emergency kits and blankets in vehicles, and ensure that cell phones are fully charged when traveling.
