Clayton County cancels after-school programs as snow falls in metro Atlanta

Dec 08, 2017
Clayton County Schools called off after-school activities Friday as snow fell in metro Atlanta. Here snow covers a tree branch at Blackburn Park in Brookhaven.

Clayton County Schools said it would be closing on a normal scheduled Friday as it avoided most of the snow that has fallen in metro Atlanta, but all scheduled extracurricular after-school activities have been cancelled through noon Saturday.
