MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minneapolis and St. Paul public school districts canceled classes for a second consecutive day Tuesday as Minnesota deals with subzero temperatures and the aftermath of a snow storm.

St. Paul Public Schools Superintendent Valeria Silva says "logistical challenges" are still a factor in getting the children to school. Many school bus routes remain partially blocked. Also, wind chills are dangerously cold and having students standing outside for buses that could be delayed isn't safe.

St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman says he disagrees with the decision to close schools again Tuesday. Coleman says he's personally toured the city and found the majority of streets have been cleared. He says a second day off puts an undue burden on parents and families.
