Fulton County, Cobb County and Marietta city schools called it quits for Thursday.
In the face of snow in the northern suburbs, despite clear roads in the south, the three decided to close.
Fulton said due to existing weather conditions, all Fulton County schools will be closed for students and most staff on Thursday, February 26. All 235 and 220 day employees should report to work at 11:00 a.m. or when conditions are safe for travel.
Stay tuned to the school system’s website, social media channels and local news stations for any updates.
