Newton County School System officials are carefully monitoring the potential for severe weather in our area as a result of Hurricane Irma. We are in constant communication with our state and local emergency management agencies and expect to learn more from officials tomorrow. As more information becomes available, we will make decisions to ensure the safety of our students and staff and their families. Any schedule changes will be posted on our website, Facebook and Twitter accounts as well as sent through our School Messenger automated call system. We will also notify local and metro Atlanta media of any closures or delays due to severe weather. Please take all necessary precautions to prepare your family for this potentially severe weather.

Stay tuned — and please “share” our Facebook posts, “like” or “follow” our social media accounts, and bookmark our school district website — — for the latest information.
