Monroe Public Schools are in session today, but the district has postponed its boys and girls basketball games against Ann Arbor Huron.
They will be made up Wednesday as part of a five-game day at Huron.
The freshmen boys and junior varsity girls will play at 4 p.m., the varsity girls and junior varsity boys at 5:30 and the varsity boys at 7.
The girls teams had been scheduled to play at home, but they were shifted to Huron because Monroe has parent-teacher conferences that day.
State Line Christian has called off is boys basketball game against Cleveland Heritage. That is unfortunate because the Patriots were scheduled to honor last year’s state championship team.
Bedford has rescheduled its boys and girls basketball games against Saline. They will be played on Jan. 23.
Ida, Erie Mason, Whiteford, Summerfield and Dundee all called off girls basketball games slated for tonight.
