CLEVELAND -- Most schools and offices in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District will be open Thursday EXCEPT for 13 CMSD schools still without power that will remain closed.

The 13 CMSD schools that will be closed Thursday are:

Charles Eliot

Cleveland School of the Arts @Harry E. Davis

Douglas MacArthur

Franklin D. Roosevelt

H. Barbara Booker

Kenneth Clement

Louisa May Alcott


Oliver Hazard Perry

Patrick Henry

Washington Park


Wilbur Wright 

CEO Eric Gordon said he realizes schools district-wide are likely to have lower attendance than normal Thursday as many homes throughout the city are still without power.

He made the decision to reopen schools that have power Wednesday not only in the interest of restoring learning, but also in consideration of the students and families CMSD serves.

"We anticipate that, in light of the circumstances, many families will be grateful that we are open and able to provide a safe, caring place for their children as parents return to work," said Gordon.

"By opening the majority of our schools, even as we restore power in many of our facilities, our families remain in charge of their own decisions and can choose to keep their children home or send them to school as best meets their needs and circumstances."
