Coweta County Schools Closed Wednesday

by Celia Shortt

Coweta Schools are closed for all students and staff on Wednesday, Feb. 12, due to the severe winter weather forecast for Coweta County.

All after-school activities for today, Tuesday, Feb. 11, and Wednesday have also been canceled. School will dismiss at normal times today, and the elementary After-School (child care) Program will also be held through normal hours today.

The regularly scheduled Coweta Board of Education meeting will still be held tonight at 6:30 p.m. at its office on Jackson Street.

In the event of additional Coweta County School System weather-related closings or delays, information will be shared with students, parents and the community through the school system’s website, through the local and Atlanta media outlets including times-herald.com, and through the school system's automated calling system.
