FOX 17 spoke with Grand Rapids Public Schools Spokesperson John Helmholdt who said a decision would be made by 11pm at the very latest.

Up to six inches of snow had fallen in Grand Rapids since 5:40pm Sunday evening, said FOX 17 Meteorologist Kevin Craig.  Besides the snow threat, the biggest problem will be record-breaking cold temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees below zero.
