Wintery Mix Sends Students Fleeing

A&E and Opinions Editor Daniel Jimenez
A few students make the best of the situation and decide to have some fun in the snow.

Students awoke Friday to icy rain falling while on their way to school, yet Fulton County stated that school would remain open for a normal day.

Shortly after 9 am, however, teachers at the school received an email saying that absences due to the snow would be considered excused.

As word spread among students regarding the email, many flocked to the attendance office to get a pass, leaving a long line snaked around the atrium.

As of around 10:45 am, over 250 students had already left, according to associate administrator Peter Vajda. Even as Vajda said this, the snow continued to pile up outside, sticking to seemingly everything but the asphalt.

Around 11:45 am Friday, the county announced that Fulton County high schools would be released at 12:30 pm.
