Dougherty County cancels classes Friday

January 23, 2003

Albany- It's the last day of the week for students at Sherwood Acres Elementary School. These students won't enter their school doors because Dougherty County School officials decided to cancel school.

Deputy Superintendent, Carlos Keith, says because of expected low temperatures Friday, he thinks it will be too cold, making it unsafe for thousands of students.

While many students say they enjoy attending school, they say they don't mind starting the weekend one day early, and they say they can't wait for low temperatures to rise and the cold weather to go away.

All central office employees have to report to work from ten until three Friday morning. Students will not have to make up the missed day.
