BLUE RIDGE, Ga – Fannin County Administration decided to close schools for students and some staff on December 1 due to inclement weather.
“As you may know, our area is under a “winter weather advisory” until 7:00 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday) morning. Although current weather forecasts for our area vary somewhat, all seem confident that temperatures will remain below freezing overnight, and our county will receive at least some additional snowfall before sunrise.
Members of the leadership team and I have been out on our area roads this evening, and we are finding below freezing temperatures with snowfall. The snow is already accumulating, especially in the western and southern parts of Fannin County.
The safety of our students and staff is always the top concern; therefore, Fannin County Schools will be closed tomorrow (Tuesday), December 1.
If it is safe to do so, 12-month personnel will be asked to report later on December 1; this information will be announced by 9:00 a.m. No other personnel should report on Tuesday, December 1.”
