Update Jan. 17, 2018 — 4:15 am — Based on weather and road conditions that have developed overnight and communications with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, all Jackson County (Georgia) School Systems’ facilities will be closed today (Wednesday, Jan. 17).
Notification through social media and traditional media is being made immediately; an “all-call” through the Infinite Campus data management system will be made at approximately 4:45 am and takes some time to cycle through the households of our 7,770 students and nearly 1,000 teachers, bus drivers, food service and custodial workers, support staff and administrators.
Thank you for your patience.
Update Jan. 16, 2018 — 9:10 p.m. — Update from Dr. Howard, our superintendent: “Our team tuned in to the National Weather Service Webinar at 8 p.m., and the likelihood of snow in our area is increasing, but right now the forecast calls for less than an inch of accumulation. Several models show the bands breaking apart before arriving to our area while others show a second band in early morning hours.
Jan. 16, 2018 — 5:13 p.m. — We plan to hold classes on a regular schedule tomorrow (Wednesday) based on the information we have at this time. HOWEVER, we will continue to watch this evening’s developing weather event and its potential impact on our area.
