Cherokee schools on closing school Wednesday: ‘Call Doc Brown’

Metro Atlanta students are impatiently wondering if they’ll get Wednesday off because of black ice dangers. 

A few hours before announcing that school would indeed resume Wednesday, Cherokee County School District offered some lighthearted trolling on social media: Call Doc Brown. 

The district’s tweet is a reference to the wild-haired scientist who invented a time machine in the Back to the Future movies. 


Cherokee, like many metro Atlanta school districts, closed school on Tuesday because of a potential winter storm, though the area has so far failed to get much, if any, snow. The district acknowledged the lack of snow by posting an image of a snowman made of mud.

“Thanks for calling. We do our best to keep you safe. If you’re mad there’s no snow, please hang up & call Mother Nature. If you’re wondering “school tmrw?” please hang up & call Doc Brown. If you’re bored, do homework, eat some milk & bread & make the best of today,” the district tweeted. 


The district later said school would resume Wednesday.

Metro school districts have not announced whether or not they will close school again Wednesday. Forecasts call for potential icy roads as temperatures drop Tuesday evening. 

Cobb County School District has said it will update parents by 5 p.m. today.
