Atlanta Public Schools (APS) released the following statement:

“Due to the logistical challenges associated with the anticipated traffic, road closures and crowds expected throughout metro Atlanta for the celebrations honoring our World Series Champion Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Public Schools will observe a district holiday and be closed on Friday, Nov. 5.

APS wants to ensure that all students and staff are safe during this time. This is a non-school day for students and will be a paid holiday for all full-time APS employees.

Friday night athletic activities are not impacted and will proceed as normal.

APS shares in the excitement of the World Series victory by our Atlanta Braves and congratulates the entire organization for a fantastic and historic season!”
