Another day of bitter-cold temperatures kept many Michigan schools shuttered for a third consecutive day.
Hundreds of elementary, middle and high schools are closed Wednesday in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and St. Clair counties in southeastern Michigan. In western Michigan, some districts closed for the day while others planned to hold classes.
Classes at many schools had been scheduled to resume Monday, but heavy snow and cold temperatures extended the holiday break.
Several universities around the state also had been closed due to the snow and extreme cold. Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Wayne State University in Detroit and Oakland University in suburban Detroit plan to hold classes Wednesday.
Michigan State University in East Lansing resumed normal operations Tuesday. The University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor stayed open this week.
