School districts in the region are preparing for extreme cold and potentially risky wind chills this week.

"The safety of students remains the most important factor in making these decisions, and since temperatures are expected to stay at unsafe levels through Thursday, we are canceling school to ensure families have ample time to plan ahead", CPS CEO Dr. Janice Jackson said in a statement.

CPS announced Tuesday that classes and after school activities were canceled Wednesday and Thursday due to the safety concern of the students.

Superintendents across the metro area say the districts communicate with each other for the days leading up to the weather event. "It's usually very clear cut". Because most of our students are walkers, either to the bus stop or their neighborhood school, the district takes special interest in their safety in relationship to the weather.

Local school districts are all keeping a close eye on the forecasts, said Niagara Falls City Schools Superintendent Mark Laurrie. There are many factors, but these are some of the things we consider when making this decision.
