As Southwest Georgia continues to clean up and repair after Tropical Storm Irma going through the area, some schools will remain closed.

Turner County schools will be open on Thursday, but ask that students on dirt roads be taken to the nearest hard road for pickup.

Atkinson County

Citizen's Christian Academy

Colquitt County
Will be closed the rest of the week and will reopen on Monday. School officials say that two schools are without power and have food delivery issues.

Cook County

Lowndes County
Schools will be closed Thursday but expect to reopen on Friday.

Turner County
Schools will be open on Thursday, but buses will not travel on dirt roads. Parents are asked to get students to the nearest hard road to be picked up.

Valdosta City Schools
Will be closed the rest of the week and will reopen on Monday. Friday night's game against TCC has been rescheduled to September 29 and all middle school games have been cancelled for the rest of the week. School officials believe that closing for the remainder of the week will allow additional time for those utilities to be restored and for everyone to regain a sense of normalcy once they have been restored.
