Gwinnett County Public Schools remain closed Thursday

For the third day in a row, Gwinnett County Public Schools will be closed on Thursday.

It’s also the sixth day the district has called off school this school year.

The makeup dates for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday have not been announced. The makeup dates for the schools being closed already this school year are Monday, March 14 and May 22.

Three makeup dates were built into this year’s school calendar.

Because of previous closings, the school year that was originally planned to end on May 21 will now go until at least May 22.

District spokeswoman Sloan Roach said while the three additional makeup dates have not been determined, the district typically tries to stick to the 180-day instructional calendar. When a decision is made, Roach said it will be communicated through local schools, the district’s web site and local news media.
