Many of the area schools closed Wednesday due to frigid temperatures will remain shuttered Thursday for the same reason.
Among those announcing closings on Thursday are:
• Butler Tech
Some districts will continue to operate their after-school and evening events, including Middletown schools, where officials said Wednesday they are going to still hold a districtwide open house at Wade E. Miller Arena and the adjacent Middletown middle school and high school on Thursday.
School officials asked residents to check their local school district websites — or local school building websites — for the latest news regarding whether Thursday evening sports, parent-teacher conferences and other school-related events were still happening.
Moreover, school officials cite concerns about students suffering from skin exposure to dangerously low temperatures.
