Editor's Note: This story was originally published Jan. 29, 2014.

Gwinnett County Public Schools announced there will be no classes on Thursday due to the inclement weather, and that news also means that tentative graduation dates will likely change.

The district also cancelled classes on Wednesday due to the recent winter storm and cancelled extracurricular activities on Tuesday night.

GCPS spokeswoman Sloan Roach said the makeup dates for the schools being closed on Wednesday and Thursday will be March 14 and May 22.

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

The district already announced that the Jan. 7 date that school was closed will be made up on Feb. 17.

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

Graduation dates, which have been recently released to local schools on a tentative basis, will be finalized in March.
