    Any update on closings in GA for tomorrow? Took my daughter this morning to find a note on the door that school was closed and the address of this website. That memo was not up Friday at 5:30pm, there was no call, message in the app, no notification and we were left scrambling for a last minute babysitter while being late for work.

    • BBMA Marketing
