From the Atlanta Public Schools Campus Messenger…. Good Evening Atlanta Public Schools’ Families,
APS places the safety and security of all our students and staff among our top priorities. Out of an abundance of caution and in alignment with Governor Deal’s decision to close state offices and the City of Atlanta’s closure due to weather, APS is cancelling school for Monday, January 8th and all afterschool activities. Recent weather forecasts indicate possible winter weather including light freezing rain for the Atlanta metro area. Parents and families should be mindful of the weather conditions and exercise caution when traveling throughout the metropolitan area. Additionally, parents and families should exercise caution on the roads due to the anticipated traffic congestion as a result of the National College Football Championship Game, the arrival of the President into downtown Atlanta, and the resulting road closures.
We are looking forward to seeing all students back to school on Tuesday, Jan. 9. Be safe.
