School delays

Whitfield County Schools, Dalton Public Schools and the Whitfield-Murray Campus of Georgia Northwestern Technical College are operating on a two-hour delay because of the weather.

Whitfield schools spokesman Eric Beavers said in a statement the delay was "due to the amount of rainfall and to ensure the safety of the students and staff." Dalton Public Schools posted on their website,, that the delay was "due to weather."

"For example, those who usually report to school at 7:30 a.m. should be there at 9:30 a.m.," Beavers said. "If a student's bus usually runs at 7 a.m., expect it to run at 9 a.m. We hope this helps our staff and student families have a safe day. Please use caution on the roads today."

The Whitfield-Murray Campus as well as the Walker Campus of Georgia Northwestern will be on a two-hour delay and open at 10 a.m., a spokeswoman said.
