"The holiday break for students continues through Tuesday, Jan. 7 in Forsyth County" I'm reading this, as no school Tuesday, but according to their website, kids ARE having classes on Tuesday, January 7th.

Nothing posted on county site or school site about closing tomorrow.

@John - that is correct. As it stands now, students return back to school on Tuesday, Jan. 7. I have changed the sentence to reflect that information. Thank you. Liz Kennedy Patch Community Editor

With technology today, you would think that schools could develop a program where kids could sign on and do a class virtually for situations like these.
