Gwinnett County Public Schools now has had its first class day lost to weather in 2013-14. Now, the question:

When will the makeup day be?

The state's largest school district Monday (Jan. 6) announced that classes would not be held on Tuesday because of the extremely cold weather conditions in the Gwinnett area.

So now, the district must use one of its makeup days, which are built into the 2013-14 calendar.

There was no announcement on when the class day would be made up, but the calendar has Monday, Feb. 17, as a snow makeup day "priority 1."

The statement by Gwinnett schools Monday read:

"Due to the extremely cold temperatures expected overnight and concerns regarding safety and operational issues, Gwinnett County Public Schools will be closed Tuesday, January 7."

Another class day lost to weather this week is unlikely. According to weather.gov, the high for Wednesday (Jan. 8) is expected to be 41 degrees, with no precipitation forecast.
