Coweta County school system monitoring winter storm

by Celia Shortt

The Coweta County School System is continuing to monitor the winter storm threat for Coweta County.

Currently, it seems as though things are focused more on Tuesday afternoon for frozen precipitation, said Dean Jackson, spokesman for the Coweta school system. Since it is farther out from the possible weather, it is hard to predict, but the conditions should become clearer this afternoon and evening.

“That is what we hope and what we will continue to monitor,” he said of the possible conditions.

School officials are currently working with emergency management law enforcement and regional forecasters, including NOAA in Peachtree City, to monitor the situation.

UPDATE: PROGRAMS CANCELED - The Coweta County Recreation Department reports that all Senior Centers have been closed, the Art Building has been closed and all recreation programs scheduled for tonight have been canceled.

TRANSIT NOT OPERATING: Coweta County Transit is not operating at this time due to expected weather conditions.

We will update as the situation warrants. Thank you.
