Central Georgia Technical College officials decided to close all of its campuses and centers for all faculty, staff and students, including special events, Tuesday. As of press time, CGTC officials had not made a decision regarding Wednesday's delays or cancellations as they were still reviewing weather information. Updates on campus and center closures will be made via email, the college website and Facebook and Twitter pages.

The Putnam County Charter School System released students early Tuesday, and a decision about school Wednesday was not made by press time Tuesday. Updates will be posted to the school system’s website.

As of press time Tuesday, all of the local schools were still monitoring the forecast and no announcements had been made regarding Thursday’s schedule.
