Metro Atlanta schools have made decisions about closing or opening Monday.
Cobb, Cherokee and Forsyth county school systems have decided to close schools Monday for students and teachers. Roads in parts of the counties, which were hit harder than counties to the south, were still icy and dangerous Sunday afternoon.
Marietta City Schools have also decided to close Monday.
DeKalb County, Atlanta Public Schools, Fulton County, Clayton County and Gwinnett County schools will be open Monday on regular schedules.
Due to icy and unsafe road conditions, all Cobb Schools and activities will be canceled Monday, January 9th. CCSD staff will not report.
