Tri-State's largest school district closes ahead of storm

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Tri-State's largest school district, Cincinnati Public Schools, is closed for Thursday.

"Buses shouldn't be on the road and staff shouldn't be on the road, it's just not safe," said Chief Operations Officer Terry Elfers with CPS on Wednesday, as the tri-state started preparing for Thursday's big storm, with several inches of snow forecasted.

Like dozens of other local districts, CPS was faced with the dilemma of whether to close before Thursday's anticipated snowstorm. Ultimately, school leaders decided to close shortly before 5 a.m. Thursday morning.

Several other of our area's larger school districts decided to close as well.
