Coffee County schools to stay closed Friday due to road dangers

Local News

COFFEE COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — The Coffee County School System will not reopen this Friday, according to Superintendent Kevin Killingsworth.

Killingsworth said that there are at least eight paved roads and many dirt roads that are not safe to pass.

With the Pea River expected to rise, Killingsworth said this may put more roads in danger of being impassable.

Schools will reopen Monday, but if some roads are still closed, the system will be using alternative bus routes. In this case, parents will need to have their children meet their buses at the alternate site.
