Why CPS canceled school Monday
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- You've likely heard or felt the howling winds Monday morning. Combined with falling temperatures, conditions could be dangerous for those outside for long. That's why Cincinnati Public Schools canceled classes.
Spokeswoman Janet Walsh says CPS has 35,000 students, 6,000 of them walk to school. She says they have to take the frigid weather into consideration. "We are also monitoring those forecasts and it looks like conditions may be even worse tomorrow. With today, we are at the end of our five calamity days, so it is entirely possible that we may have to take another day tomorrow and then we'll be looking at making up a day at the end of the school year."
Walsh says they do consider safety to be a priority. The district doesn't want the kids to be out long in these conditions.
