A number of schools were forced to close Friday morning due to the Lake Effect snow storm that hit metro Buffalo. But some District's are running out of 'snow days.'  WBFO'S Focus on Education reporter Eileen Buckley checked with some districts.

As of Friday, the Buffalo Public School District has used up its allotted six snow days.  The city district was closed for five days during the November storm.  The District telling WBFO News it will begin to identify "add-back days" if more snow days shut down classes this school year. 

The Lancaster Central School District posted on its website that in the event of more 'inclement weather' this year, it will begin to make up for lost school days. Those days would be returned from the month of April. 

The Kenmore Tonawnada School District had just two snow days left, but with Friday's school closing it's down to one.  

Other districts , like Akron Central  posted potential retrieval days on its school calendar website school also for the month of April.
