Weather forecasters are predicting wintry weather possible starting tonight; however, conditions are not expected to affect travel.

Anytime weather conditions could become unsafe for students and staff traveling to schools in buses and on the road in general, area school transportation departments monitor the weather forecasts and keeps in regular contact with law enforcement agencies and the National Weather Service to check on roadway conditions.

School officials say the school superintendent will make a decision to delay or close schools no later than 6 a.m. in Newton County.

Once that decision is made, local system employees will begin notifying parents and staff through its automated phone systems; major television stations like ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC; metro-Atlanta radio stations like Star 94 and WSB Radio; and its school system Web site, www.newtoncountyschools.org.
