Schools reopen

September 7, 2004

Students at only two South Georgia school systems will get to spend one more day out of class.

Valdosta State University won't resume class until Thursday. Staff will have to report Wednesday, but students will not. VSU officials say they want to give students traveling back to Valdosta a little more time to avoid possible congestion that may be caused by evacuees returning to Florida.

Students in Berrien County will miss another day of classes. Wide-spread power outages are blamed for the cancellations, but faculty and staff should come to work.

Classes will resume Wednesday at all of the other schools and colleges that were closed Tuesday.

Businesses that closed or altered their schedules because of Frances will resume their normal hours.
