GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Rapids Public Schools will have a snow day again on Thursday.
The school system also didn’t have classes on Wednesday as West Michigan faces an ice storm.
“The weather has deteriorated driving conditions significantly,” GRPS Superintendent Leadriane Roby, Ph.D., said in a release. “While we want our learners in the classroom as much as possible, we have to make sure it’s safe to do so. With the way this storm has developed, it is obvious that keeping our scholars home is the safest course.”
All classes and activities will be canceled, the school said.
It said families that need help during the storm should call United Way at 211.
Several other school districts, including Kalamazoo Public Schools, have canceled school for Wednesday, as West Michigan is faces freezing rain, sleet and snow. More than 300 schools and organizations will be closed. A full list can be found here.
