Inclement Weather: School Closing Information

Marietta City Schools Winter Weather Update
Early Dismissal with After-School Activities Canceled


Marietta City Schools (MCS) has been in contact with the National Weather Service, City of Marietta, and neighboring metro-Atlanta school districts regarding the inclement weather forecast. Out of an abundance of caution, MCS will have a two-hour early release on Friday, January 6, 2017. Specifically, schools will be released at the following times:

  • Marietta High School - 12:30 p.m.
  • Marietta Middle School - 12:30 p.m.
  • All MCS Elementary Schools – 1:15 p.m.
  • Marietta Sixth Grade Academy – 2:00 p.m.
  • Marietta Center for Advanced Academics – 2:00 p.m.
School buses will run the normal routes following the early dismissal time.

Additionally, all after-school programs and extra-curricular events are cancelled for Friday (after early dismissal) and throughout the weekend.

Our MCS staff will continue to monitor weather conditions throughout the night and early morning. If we feel there are any changes to this plan, we will notify you via email, text, district website, and social media (by 5:00 a.m. Friday morning).

As always, the safety of MCS students and staff is the school system’s highest priority.
