The School District said in a news release late Thursday that the decision to stay closed was made by the superintendent, "in an abundance of caution and due to probable hazardous conditions/icy roads in the early morning hours."
All school employees who work 190 to 247 days a year, however, should report at 10 a.m., the District said.
Cherokee County government offices will open their doors at 10 a.m. and the city of Woodstock will resume normal business, the county said in a late Thursday news release.
Reinhardt University is also set to open at 10 a.m., after days closed.
The William G. Long Senior Center will remain closed Friday but will open Monday. Staff of the senior center should report to work at their normally scheduled time Friday, the county said.
Cherokee officials said Waste Management would also not resume normal scheduled routes for residential trash service and recycling until Monday, with no make-up of missed service. The company is waiving its eight-bag limit next week for residents to make up for missed service.
Commercial service, however, will resume Friday.
