ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany public schools are not expected to close because Tuesday's weather will be abnormally cold.

The DCSS issued this statement Monday morning-

The Dougherty County School System maintains regular communications with Mr. Jim Vaught, Director of the Dougherty County Emergency Management Agency, who advises the superintendent about weather or other conditions that may present a danger to students and staff.

As of this morning, the decision has been made that school will be held in Dougherty County School System on the regular schedule. Fortunately, the cold temperatures are not expected to be accompanied by sleet or snow.

The facilities department maintains a heating and air conditioning maintenance schedule that keeps those systems in proper working order. The staff in that department is available after hours, if needed, to make emergency repairs.

The transportation department has implemented a cold weather bus starting plan so buses are schedule to be started and warmed up earlier than normal so that route schedules may be run on time.

There may be unanticipated challenges to arise due to below freezing temperatures the next two days.

If unexpected problems occur, we ask parents, students and staff to be patient as we work to correct those. We also ask parents to make sure students are dressed with proper layers and protection from this anticipated cold weather.
