“In addition, when inclement weather is an issue, members of (Gwinnett Schools’) Facilities and Operations team head out as early as 3:30 or 4 a.m. to drive around the county to assess road conditions. Facilities are checked in the early hours, and GCPS works with power providers, as needed. “
Roach added it’s more likely for the decision to cancel school to come in the early morning — due to hazardous road conditions that formed overnight.
“Typically, the decision to cancel school is made before 6 a.m. Announcements about school closures or delays are shared on GCPS TV, on the school system’s website, on Twitter and Facebook, through School Messenger calls and optional texts, and via metro-Atlanta new media outlets.” she said.
Forsyth County Schools are also in a wait-and-see mode.
“There’s no decision yet,” she said early Sunday evening. “We typically do announcements no later than 5:30 am the day of school. We begin at 4 a.m. checking the roads and schools.”
Both Gwinnett and Forsyth offer online learning in the event of school closings. Whether that will be implemented Monday, will be determined in the morning.
Meanwhile, north of those two counties, Habersham County announced that schools would be closed Monday.
