Fulton County Schools are crying “uncle,” under the weight of football, a visiting president, and now, a forecast for icy rain.

The district will be closed Monday, like most in metro Atlanta, due to expected icy road conditions in the morning.

But unlike many, the district added that its decision was informed by “the traffic challenges presented by the College Football Championship game from fans and the presidential motorcade. “

President Donald Trump is expected to attend the game between the Bulldogs and the Crimson Tide.

No students or staff should report to school.
