CHICAGO-- CPS students head back to school today after having two days off because of the brutally cold conditions.

CPS Officials released the following statement Thursday evening:

“While temperatures are expected to remain cold, we are welcoming our students back to class on Friday,” said CPS CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett. “We urge all parents and families to make sure their children are prepared for the cold weather conditions, and CPS is following its winter weather plan to ensure all students and school personnel have a warm, comfortable and safe learning environment.”

Dozens of other districts are doing the same, even though the weather hasn't changed that much.

Some based their decisions on how many students walk to school, and how many emergency days they have left to spare this school year.
