Central Catholic and Oakland Catholic have both released their students for the day.
One Pittsburgh Public School – Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy – allowed their students to go home.
The school educates students in grades 6-12. It also has a pre-K program.
Parents received a phone call through a message system that said they would not be allowed to pick up their children.
