The results of Tuesday's snowy and icy weather has prompted the cancellation of classes and activities for many metro Atlanta school districts for a third full day.

After being off Wednesday and Thursday, Friday will be an off day for students around the Atlanta region, too.

Among the school districts telling kids to stay home on Friday include those from Atlanta, Bartow County Fulton County, Cartersville City, Cobb County, DeKalb County, Douglas County, Cherokee County, Forsyth County, Paulding County, Marietta City, and City Schools of Decatur.

Playtime in the snow is over for Gwinnett County students who will be back in school Friday.

This nuts...Being from New Jersey, I can't understand the days off here for next to nothing. My school was 1.2 miles from our home, and there was no cafeteria in the school. So 4 times a day, me, my 3 brothers and a couple neighborhood kids make the trek. Almost 5 miles everyday. Our schools didn't close unless it was a blizzard. Kids down here are too weak, and soft.
