Cobb County schools will be closed Monday.

Several metro Atlanta area schools will remain closed on Monday.

Fulton, Cherokee, Cobb, Marietta, Carroll, Douglas, and Paulding County schools will be closed due to lingering affects of Friday’s snowstorm.

Staff members in Carroll County school are expected to report at 10 a.m., but Douglas County staff members have another day off.

“This includes all employees, including 240 day employees,” Douglas County spokeswoman Portia lake said. “Superintendent North greatly appreciates your patience and support while reaching this decision.”

Leftover snow and icy road conditions are only part of the problem, school officials said.

Power outages remain at eight schools, Cobb County spokesman Ross Cavitt said. 

Atlanta, DeKalb and Clayton County schools will be open, the districts said. A spokeswoman for Gwinnett County Schools said about 4:30 p.m. that Gwinnett has not made an announcement about closing tomorrow and she expects schools will be open. Check back on ajc.com for updates.
