COLUMBUS, Ohio — Officials said schools would remain closed for a second day today at a district near a series of highway shootings after bullet marks were found on two school buses.
Officials already had canceled classes Thursday, a day after the marks were found near the taillights of the buses during maintenance inspections.
The district used the day off to inspect all of its 200 buses and confer with a task force investigating the shootings, said South-Western City Schools Supt. Kirk Hamilton. No other bullet marks were found during the inspection, he said.
The district serves about 20,500 students in grades kindergarten through 12, and today had been scheduled to be the last day of classes before a two-week winter break, Hamilton said.
