    After heavy snow and freezing temperatures closed hundreds of area schools this winter, Chicago Public Schools officials said make-up days will result in a shorter summer break.

    CPS spokesperson Jamila Johnson said schools will be open June 12 and June 13 to make up for the Jan. 27 and Jan. 28 snow days.

    Classes were canceled at 658 schools after forecasts for bitter cold temperatures and high winds forced officials to close schools.

    District officials added two days to the academic calendar -- March 28 and June 11 -- after the first round of closings on Jan. 5 and Jan. 6 and were working to find suitable make-up days on the calendar for the two days missed late last month.

    The last day of classes was originally scheduled for June 10.
