DeKalb County Schools closed tomorrow
According to the website
The Memorial Services for Mrs. Coretta Scott King will be held on February 7, 2006 in DeKalb County at the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. Out of respect for the memory and legacy of Mrs. King, all schools and administrative offices of the DeKalb County School System will be closed on Tuesday, February 7, 2006.
My guess is that the school system realized that there were going to be a huge number of teachers and staff taking personal days to attend or participate in the funeral. Also, the huge number of dignitaries (the last 4 Presidents, prominent nationa figures, etc.) descending on Lithonia makes it best not to have school buses getting in the way.
Fulton County schools are open tomorrow. However, “[d]ocumented absences due to the funeral will be excused.”
