Because of the frigid temperatures, Toledo Public Schools closed on Thursday, December 15, meaning high school students have to report for half a day on Friday, December 16, to finish their exams. It also means:

  • That elementary students have started their winter break but their teachers will still report on Friday, December 16, for a Teacher Work Day. Elementary students will report back to school, as scheduled, on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.
  • Because the high school students will attend a half-day of school on Friday, the Teacher Work Day for high school teachers is being moved to Tuesday, January 3, 2017. High school students will not report for classes that day. Their first day of school after winter break will be Wednesday, January 4, 2017.

The decision to close schools on Thursday was made after monitoring the forecast from local meteorologists and considering the weather conditions when students would be heading to school. The safety of our students is our number one priority and when weather conditions are as they were on Thursday, we must take into consideration the time students spend walking to and from school or to and from the bus stop.
