Inclement Weather Procedures
For school closings, you can also tune in to Atlanta news stations, district and school Facebook pages, and local news media – Know Pickens, Pickens Progress, and Fetch Your News. Again, our first priority is the safety and well-being of our students and staff. We want everyone to arrive safely to their destination. Also of great concern to the district is the number of inexperienced high school drivers who are new to driving in inclement weather. Make certain that you take care of updating telephone numbers and transportation directions before a weather event occurs.
