Closing early today

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Hamilton County is closing schools two hours early today because of weather.

“We have a possibility of temperatures dropping below freezing in the mountains and higher elevations so we want to make sure we can get buses finished with routes before any problems may arise this afternoon,” stated Dr. Bryan Johnson, superintendent of Hamilton County Schools. “This is just a precaution to make sure we get our children home safely today.”

All dismissal activities will take place two hours earlier than normal. If your school dismisses at 3 p.m., the dismissal would take place at 1 p.m. today. All other dismissal activities from car rider pick-up to bus routes will be two hours earlier than normal today.
