From Staff Reports

All Coweta County Schools will be closed on Monday, January 8 due to expected winter weather conditions.

Coweta County School System students and employees should not report to schools on Monday. Also closed on Monday is The Heritage School.

The school closing decision was made after the National Weather Service in Peachtree City issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Coweta County and much of northwest Georgia from 5 a.m. until noon on Monday. Light freezing rain is expected to develop very late tonight into Monday morning. Total ice accumulations of a light glaze to less than a tenth of an inch are expected.

The freezing rain will result in difficult travel conditions, including during the morning commute on Monday. Elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses will be most susceptible to icing.
