ESCANABA, Michigan — Cold temperatures, snow and ice are prompting some Michigan school districts to close for the day.

The shutdown on Monday extended holiday breaks for some students who were scheduled to return to class after about two weeks off.

School closings were reported in the Upper Peninsula, including the Escanaba area. In the Lower Peninsula, closings are reported in western and southwestern Michigan, including several Van Buren County districts. Some Jackson-area schools were closed.
