LIST: School closings, delays due to severe storms
School districts have adjusted their plans for Tuesday morning because of severe weather.
Severe Weather Team 2 tracked a strong line of severe storms that moved through north Georgia Sunday and caused widespread damage to a few counties in west Georgia.
Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brian Monahan said on Monday that the severe storm risks were low across north Georgia, but waves of heavy rain and isolated storms continued to move across metro Atlanta on Monday.

Meriwether County Schools- Remote learning Tuesday
“Due to hazardous road conditions from the recent flooding, all Meriwether County Schools will transition to remote learning on Tuesday March 28, 2023. Schools will contact parents and guardians by either email or one call regarding the details of remote learning. There are several paved roads where the water is crossing the pavement, and the dirt roads are impassable in many areas. These scenarios do not allow for the safe transportation of students. The school system will continue to monitor road conditions and provide further updates if required. Thank you for your support and patience as we assure the safety and health of students.”

Troup County Schools- Closed Tuesday
“Troup County School System officials have been in contact with the Troup County Emergency Management Office concerning the recent weather in Troup County.Due to continuing rising water and extensive road closures due to flooding, eleven roads and bridges have become impassable. There are road closures from Hogansville to West Point and to Pine Mountain. These closures would affect 40 of our 135 bus routes in the morning. This would cause extreme delays in getting students to school. Due to student safety, all schools will be closed for students for one additional day on Tuesday, March 28, 2023. All TCSS employees should report to work tomorrow at normal time as safely as possible. We hope water levels, creeks, and streams will subside over the next 24 hours, and we can reopen schools on Wednesday, March 29. However, there may be situations that require alternative routes as roads are being repaired. The school system will continue to monitor road conditions and provide further updates as necessary. Thank you for your support and patience as we strive to ensure the safety and health of students and staff.”
