Ann Arbor Snow Day Planner

With winter weather, it is snow day season. Our Snow Day Planner will help you find school closures, child care, and activities.

Snow Day Planner - November 12

It looks like school is in session throughout the region today. But it is good to review procedures and camp options for future snow days.

School Closures

The first thing to check on a snowy day is for school closures.

School Closure Procedures

I know the Ann Arbor Public School standard which is followed by is to make a decision by 6a. The local school districts all alert local TV and radio. Most School Districts post closures on their social media.

The more complicated situation is what happens when snow arrives during the school day. A few years ago they did close school early. That was a logistical nightmare. I know our school required everyone to confirm what to do with their elementary school student who rode the bus. Even as someone who picked up their child, they still asked us to confirm receiving the message. My guess is that they try to avoid this situation.

Ann Arbor Public Schools will call, email, and text your on file numbers. It is not unusual to receive a call around 5a. AAPS also has a phone hotline and posts on social media and their website.

Snow Day Camps

There are a few locations that run camps on snow days. When the weather looks threatening, check with them the day before if you need to pre-register.



If you have to get to work, you can also check with a neighbor or with your child’s friends – especially if you just need care for a meeting, appointment, teaching a class, etc.

Sledding Hills

A snow day is the perfect day for sledding – just pick one near home or wait for the roads to improve later in the day.

Activity Suggestions

I am hopeful that the roads will improve through the day allowing us to get out in the afternoon.

If you’re looking for ideas, we have a few suggestions:

  • The Ann Arbor District Library reopens the Pittsfield Branch after their renovation
  • Visit the new exhibits at the UM Natural History Museum that opened on Sunday.
  • Revel & Roll is offering snow-day specials from noon-3p.

At Home Activities

Have you ever made Snow Cream? We had fun making it during a big snowstorm a few years ago.

Snow Cream

Snow Days are a good day to catch up on any homework or projects. Over the years, we have definitely spent a few January/February snow days working on a science fair project.

Snow Days are a good day for movies at home. November 12 also happens to be the first day of Disney+. A few themed movie suggestions that are available for streaming:

  • Frozen – Celebrate winter & get ready for Frozen II’s November 22 release. It is available for streaming on Disney+!
  • Surf’s Up – about surfing penguins is on Netflix
  • The Snowy Day – available on Amazon Prime

Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
