The Troup County School System is monitoring the weather and will make a final determination on the weather Tuesday. As of Monday night, schools are planning to open Monday.

Superintendent Brian Shumate said at Monday night’s school board meeting that TCSS administrators will meet Tuesday morning to get the latest information on Tropical Storm Fred. The National Weather Service in Peachtree Service said Monday that it expects 3 to 4 inches of rain in Troup County.

Shumate noted that the winds are a concern and he said he’s aware that some other nearby school systems are closed on Tuesday. Harris County schools are closed Tuesday and Muscogee County Schools are going virtual for Tuesday.

Shumate said he will monitor the storm overnight and a final decision will be announced in the morning at 5:15 a.m.
