Whoops! Atlanta reverses decision to open schools Friday

Atlanta Public Schools has changed its decision about re-opening Friday, determining that the roads are still too unsafe to travel.

On Thursday afternoon, the district had announced that it would re-open after two days of being closed.

But after 6:30 p.m., the district released this statement:

“Atlanta Public Schools was hopeful that we would reopen and resume our normal schedule on Friday, January 19. However, due to the continuing unfavorable road conditions in some neighborhoods in the metro Atlanta area which may result in staffing challenges, APS schools and the district administrative offices will remain closed on Friday.”
