The Norwalk City Schools district now is closed today, due to the weather and road conditions.
Because the district has exceeded its allotted five calamity days, all students now must report to school this Friday, which originally was scheduled as a day off for makeup purposes, Superintendent George Fisk said.
In addition, Norwalk students in grades lower than high school will have to make up another day, but it has yet to be determined when that will be.
Also closing today are Bellevue, Christie Lane, Monroeville, New London, South Central, Western Reserve and Willard.
Plymouth-Shiloh remained on a two-hour delay as of this update.

Inclement weather forced area school districts to delay the start of classes by two hours.
Districts on a two-hour delay include Norwalk.
The National Weather Service in Cleveland issued this special weather statement at 3:38 a.m. today: “Patchy freezing drizzle will be possible across the area through mid morning. Temperatures will be in the upper 20s and lower 30s, which could lead to a light glaze of ice on untreated surfaces. Motorists should continue to use caution.”
Huron and Erie counties remain under a Level 1 road advisory.
Other area districts on a two-hour delay this morning include Bellevue, Christie Lane, Monroeville, New London, Plymouth-Shiloh, South Central, Western Reserve and Willard.
