Atlanta Public Schools is the latest to announce they will have a “non-instructional” day for students Friday. Teachers and staff are to work remotely.

Fulton, Cobb, Bartow, Fannin, Paulding, Dawson, Habersham and Lumpkin counties will also all remain closed on Friday due to power outages.

“We are grateful to local crews clearing roads and restoring power, but the storm impact on our schools remains significant. Currently over 40 campuses are without power and internet; and uncertainty remains when utilities will be restored. Friday will also provide time for our staff to address other issues related to storm recovery,” Fulton County schools said in a statement.

Hall and Gwinnett counties will be open for digital learning only.
