With snow accumulation of at least one inch in metro Atlanta, schools cancelled classes late Tuesday night.
It’s the third time in just more than a month that metro Atlanta schools have closed due to weather.
DeKalb and Fulton County Schools said in emails that students and staff should stay home ahead of forecasts for frigid temperatures and icy road conditions.
Gwinnett County Schools said Wednesday should be considered a digital learning day, giving a link to log in for lessons.
