UPDATE Noon 12/10/17: We’re working with our community safety partners to check conditions throughout the county – including the accessibility of all our school campuses – in order to make a decision about opening school on Monday. That decision may not be made until tonight. #SafeCherokee

UPDATE 12/8/17 2:44 p.m.:All Cherokee County School District campuses are now clear, with all students delivered safely or picked up by parents. We greatly appreciate our outstanding bus drivers for the job they do every day, and especially in inclement weather. We’re grateful to our teachers and staff for making early dismissal run as smoothly as possible. We also thank our students and parents for working with us to ensure everyone arrived home safely before conditions worsened. Please stay safe this weekend. #SafeCherokee
