Tour of new Bibb schools canceled

A community tour of Bibb County’s newest schools that was set for Friday has been canceled, according to Bibb school officials.

Because the state asked teachers to take furloughs that Bibb chose to take Friday, Bibb schools will be closed and most employees will stay home.

The tour will be rescheduled at a later date, said Chris Floore, spokesman for the Bibb County school system.

The tour was going to offer community members and the media a peek at the new Central and Southwest high schools, Ingram-Pye Elementary and the new Early Childhood Center.
