Madison County schools also closed today. ..but as of now they will return for a full day of school tomorrow.
Clarke County opened today, but students and parents were advised to keep kids inside or in warm cars until buses arrived this morning. All students whose parents thought it was just too cold to send their kids to school, will be excused upon request.
Oconee…and Jackson County schools were open today and are planned to stay open tomorrow. If anything is to change, parents, teachers and students will be notified by 5:30 tomorrow morning.
