You can get weather reports in so many ways now. You can tune in to WSB-TV (ABC) or radio stations WSB 750 AM and WSB 98.5 FM for the latest information on weather-related public school system closings in the State of Georgia.
Online you can view the 10-day forecast for Atlanta from The Weather Channel. If you need weather for another area, at the top of their screen where the magnifying glass is you can type in another city. There are also a wide variety of weather apps for iPhones or Androids and many other weather websites to view. For school closings, you can view individual schools, colleges and university websites. If they are closed, there will be a posted alert on the main homepage.
In the event of inclement weather, Bright from the Start coordinated training will be canceled if public schools are closed in the county where training is to be held. For example, if a Bright from the Start coordinated training is scheduled in Rome, Georgia, and public school classes in Floyd County are canceled, then the training is also canceled.
