Area schools closing for weather

CORDELE — The National Weather Service has reported that severe, inclement weather will affect Crisp County and surrounding areas during tonight and into the morning hours of Friday. There is a prediction of snow, sleet, and rain.

At 3 p.m. today officials with schools all around Crisp County met to discuss the possibility of closing due to those reports. The time frames for the inclement weather increase the dangers of black ice and icy bridges during times that buses would be running their routes to pick up students.

The Crisp County Board of Education made the decision to CLOSE all Crisp County Schools tomorrow. This includes Crisp Academy. All faculty and students should remain home on Friday, January 8, 2010 and return to school on Monday, January 11, 2010. The Crisp County Board of Education will determine if and when this day out of school will be made up for the students and faculty.

It has not yet been confirmed as whether or not Dooly County will also close. The Cordele Dispatch spoke with a representative from the Dooly County Board of Education office who informed that the board would be making a decision later this evening and for that report you should watch the 11 p.m. news. The Cordele Dispatch will post that news on this website as it is made available.

The Wilcox County Board of Education will also be announcing their decision whether or not to close later and have informed that citizens should also tune into the evening news or check the school's website. The Cordele Dispatch will also post the information on this site as soon as it is made available. According to Wilcox Superintendent Steve Smith a final decision will be made by 10 p.m. this evening.
