Flooding soaks up last school weather day

Photo provided One needs to look no further than Seven Springs Road to understand why DeKalb County schools were closed Thursday. The decision leaves the school system with no remaining bad weather days.
Schools will be flying without a net after using the final bad weather day this past Thursday due to flooding conditions. “I think we may have been able to get them to school but if it kept raining, we may not have been able to get them home,” said Director of Schools Patrick Cripps on the decision to cancel schools Thursday. The Director said he and others took the roads early Thursday morning and found some such as Seven Springs and Blue Springs covered with water and several others on the brink of flooding.
