Temperatures might be warm enough for students to return to many schools Wednesday, but buses had other plans as some districts were forced to cancel classes again due to transportation problems.
The Akron, Cuyahoga Falls, Stow-Munroe Falls and Woodridge districts in Summit County are closed Wednesday because some of their buses wouldn’t start as the region begins to slowly thaw out in the wake of this week’s extreme cold.
Hundreds of Northeast Ohio schools were shuttered by the extreme cold for the third consecutive day.
