Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,

We have been informed that one student tested positive for COVID-19. The school has made contact with those that had possible exposure. We will report the case to the Georgia Department of Public Health. They will take the appropriate steps in regards to contact tracing. We are making efforts to disinfect school buildings.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Albritton
Superintendent

Parents, Students, and Staff,

We are still very concerned about the percentage of positive tests in the last 14 days for our county. However, our staff members have been at work for the last two weeks, and we have had no new cases. At this time, we plan to welcome in-person students back to school on January 19, 2021.

Please keep in mind that many of our 1st semester distance learners have opted for in-person learning this semester. This will make social distancing in the classroom more difficult. When we have a positive case in the school, it is likely that our quarantines will involve a lot more students. I am providing a few reminders about some of our health and safety practices.

• Disinfecting our school buildings and buses routinely
• Requiring students to wear masks on the school buses
• Encouraging the use of face masks/coverings
• The high school and middle school students and staff will be required to wear face masks/coverings during classroom transitions.

Parents and guardians, please continue to monitor your children at home. Staff members should also be monitoring themselves as well. We have the following documents to help with your decision making:

The hours of the pick-up sites are every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Parents, Students, and Staff,

For the health and well-being of our students and staff members, we have made the decision to implement distance learning for in-person students January 11th–January 15th. Your child’s school or teacher will communicate specific information on how instruction will be provided. Odysseyware students should have ongoing instruction through the Odysseyware program, and your child’s school should be providing information about the program and specific guidelines for the second semester.

We will continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 in our school system as well as in our community. It is our hope to have in-person students back at school on January 19th. We plan to make an announcement regarding the week of the 19th by the afternoon on January 13th. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Respectfully,

Jennifer Albritton
Superintendent
