Weather for 1/29/2019

We are monitoring the weather situation for Tuesday, and remainder of the week. We will notify you should we close school.

Per our closing procedures, we automatically close whenever Cobb closes, or whenever 2 of the following close: Bartow, Cherokee, Fulton, or Paulding.

As always, should conditions where you live make travel unsafe, please stay safe, as absences for weather conditions are excused.

No School 12/10/2018

In the interest of the safety of our faculty and staff, there will be no school tomorrow…

  • Because of the high likelihood of black ice tomorrow, 12/11/2018, and
  • We have families traveling from 6 counties which will be impacted at various levels, combined with
  • It is not expected to get above freezing before 10AM at the earliest, making it likely that it will be 11AM before travel is safe

Please be safe and we will see you Wednesday.

Also… for future reference, remember that we always close if Cobb County closes, and we also close if any 2 of Bartow, Cherokee, Fulton, or Paulding close. However, because of our unique situation with students coming from various counties, we have a larger burden of safety than judging based on one county alone, so we may cancel before they do.
