The storm was downgraded significantly from a category 5 hurricane to a tropical storm by the time it reached the Georgia state line, and never directly hit metro Atlanta. Wind and rain from the storm knocked down hundreds of trees and power lines and left thousands of residents in the dark several days.
District officials said four inclement weather days were built into the school year, which would cover the four days missed due to the storm. Officials did not say during the meeting whether they were attempting to make these days up to leave these days free to be used for possible snow days.
