All Coweta Schools Closed Monday
Dear Coweta County School System Families,
Thursday night’s tornado wreaked havoc on parts of our community. Unfortunately several of our schools and facilities were not spared. Newnan High School, Atkinson Elementary School, and our Transportation Facility all sustained extensive damage. Areas throughout the community have been deeply affected as well.
Upon guidance from Emergency Management, it is not advisable for us to open schools on Monday, March 29, 2021. There will also be no virtual instruction on Monday.
Power is down across parts of the community and many roads are still impassable. While some school areas have not been affected by the storm, personnel and transportation required for safe daily operations have been adversely affected.
We will continue to consult with our local government, law enforcement and emergency management partners to assess our ability to safely open later in the week and will provide you with an update on our status after progress has been made to restore power and open roads.
I appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this very difficult time.
Superintendent, Coweta County School System
