The majority of Columbus City Schools will have to make up a school day at the end of the year, or more depending on the continuation of severe weather.

The district closed Wednesday because of a mixture of snow and ice that began falling Tuesday afternoon.

Under Ohio law, public school districts are permitted to cancel classes up to five days per year in case of unexpected events. The majority of CCS schools used four calamity days in September, when power was disrupted by a windstorm, and one more day earlier this month because of cold weather.

Eleven schools already had used their allotted calamity days during the windstorm. With the most recent closings, those schools will have to make up two days at the end of the school year.

The 11 schools that will have to make up two days are: Cedarwood Alternative Elementary School, Colerain Elementary School, Cranbrook Elementary School, Devonshire Alternative Elementary School, Eakin Elementary School, Eastgate Elementary School, East Linden Elementary School, Hamilton STEM Academy PreK-6, Beery Middle School, Dominion Middle School and Ridgeview Middle School.
