A decision on whether Gwinnett County schools will hold classes Wednesday (Jan. 8) "has not been made at this time," spokesperson Jorge Quintana said.

Quintana added that the system would follow "the same process that we have in place" as far as weather-related closures.

Updated Jan. 7, 10:58 a.m.:
Gwinnett County Public Schools has posted the following message on its Facebook page:

The day missed for school tomorrow (Jan. 7) will be made up using the first scheduled snow make up day-- Feb. 17.

Original post: 
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.
