Updated list of complete local school closings

    what about life skills school in Elyria?

    • Sean MacNair

      The Fox8 closing list has Life Skills Center of Elyria closed tomorrow.

  • Pamela Romero

    Wow, Elyria really closed for 2 days, I am in shock!

  • Phil Blank

    Lorain library is open, but the casino closes?
    The library is almost right on the lake.

  • cioceann

    Please tell me why anyone has to be open tomorrow other than emergency facilities – the more people on the road the more dangerous we make it for the safety forces – is it really worth getting frostbite or dying just to make a buck. I think the Sheriff should issue a Level 3 emergency for tomorrow and I think stores and restaurants, banks, courthouses etc should be closed. ITS ONE DAY!

    They should also cancel mail delivery. My poor mailman was out in this today just to deliver junk mail to me. My sincerest apologies sir.

    • cioceann

      rlm I totally agree – it is insane for them to have to be out in this weather – sometimes i think we are all just pawns to be used by these employers to make money and they don’t care about our well being. What ever happened to human concern?

    • Tom

      It’s pointless for them to bring my mail. I’m not checking it today or tomorrow. Too cold and too long of a walk.
