From the Paulding County School District:

Thank you for your patience as we assessed road conditions today. Due to probable hazardous/icy roads in the morning, schools will be closed for students on Friday, February 14th. All 190 days employees and above should report at 10:00 a.m.

We will have Winter Break as scheduled February 17-21. Any need or plan for make-up days will be communicated as soon as possible.

They have got to be kidding, how are they suppose to make up all this school work. Why still have winter break? They have missed 8 days of school. I think a education is more important then someone's vacation!

I agree with you Heather! They said they were still going to have winter break because people have already made plans and they may look at cancelling spring break as an option. I would rather make plans in the spring rather than February! I'm wondering if it's the staff that's peeved and not the parents.

I commend the administration of Paulding County Schools for looking out for the safety of the kids regardless of what the public thinks. To think that the descision to closed or open schools is based on personal agendas of board members of administration is absolutely ridiculous.

They haven't addressed anything other than giving the kids another day off that could have been just a late arrival day. The administration has still left it up in the air about make up days. We don't know when or if the kids will have to make up the missed days. Families make plans in advance. I know our Spring break plans are already made & Im working on the summer now. Time to get their acts in gear & start "addressing" the issue.

I understand closing school for today because there could still be icy patches on the road. But I don't agree with keeping the winter break.
