Elbert County Schools were closed for a second consecutive day.
According to Elbert County School Superintendent Chuck Bell, the extremely cold temperatures have caused issues at two of the system’s schools, which has prevented either building from having access to running water.
Bell said with that being the case, that they did not want to send several hundred students to school without access to proper restroom facilities, and therefore has decided that there would be no school in Elbert County today.
Elbert County Schools are expected to return to a normal schedule tomorrow.
In addition to Elbert County, Hart County Schools were also closed today, also expected to resume normal hours tomorrow.
