Thank you Taylor County community for supporting the requests of Taylor Co High School established to safeguard against the Covid19 pandemic. We had a great 1st week of school, and it was obvious that our staff & students were eager to return. Please continue the amazing support going forward and we’ll get thru this together, providing our kids a quality education and graduating our Seniors. Sincerely, Brian Barnhill, Principal

I would like to thank our students, parents, and guardians for your support and patience as we have made it through our first week of school. In spite of very difficult circumstances, the staff of the Taylor County School District has done a wonderful job. I am grateful for their efforts, and I have witnessed many of them going above and beyond to take care of our distance learners, in-person learners, and each other. I have provided the summary in the link below to help capture what has happened in terms of COVID-19 in our District. This information is based on people who were present in our school buildings beginning August 17, 2020. There were ongoing cases that occurred prior to opening schools. Of course, this is based on the information that I have at this time. https://5il.co/k1ae 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: https://5il.co/j52d https://5il.co/jmuf Jennifer Albritton Superintendent

Change to Parent Pick-up Middle School and High School In an effort to relieve some of the congestion in our parent pick-up area for the middle and high school students, we are making changes starting today, August 18th. The existing parent pick-up area will be for sixth grade and seventh grade students. Eighth grade – twelfth grade students may be picked up at the Auditorium parking area (front and side). If extra space is needed, you may park in area in front of the old maintenance barn. We ask that you access the area by driving North on Oak Street because the buses will be coming from East Main Street and will likely block the intersection of East Main Street and Oak Street. If you are picking up students from multiple grade levels at the middle/high school campus, please park in the area of the student in the lowest grade level. You will pick up all of your students in that one area. We will communicate this to the students today in our announcements. Extra staff members will be present to help parents adjust to the change. We appreciate your patience with us as we modify our procedures and processes in this current environment. Please know we are going to be monitoring our plans, and we will make adjustments as needed.

Volleyball Match In an effort to keep our players and spectators safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, we must limit the number of spectators admitted into tomorrow’s volleyball match. Each student athlete will be allowed to have 4 spectators admitted into tomorrow’s match. Once spectators are inside the gym, they will be asked to practice social distancing. We encouraged everyone to wear a mask to help improve the safety for all. We appreciate your understanding during this difficult time and your support of our student-athletes.

August 10, 2020 Dear Parents, and Guardians, As we try to keep separation between students waiting for their parents to pick them up, we will be making a change to the pick-up lines at the Primary School and Upper Elementary School. Both schools will allow cars to line up in two lanes up to a certain marked point. These two lanes will become a single lane as stops are made to pick up students. In transitioning to a single lane, the cars in the two lanes will alternate turns. In other words, the second car to arrive will be lined up evenly with the first car forming two lanes. When other cars arrive, they will line up behind the two front cars. As we release the cars to the single lane, the car from lane 1 will pull down. Then, a car from lane 2 will go behind that car. Taking turns in this fashion will continue as students are picked up. Extra staff members will be present during the first few days to help parents adjust to the change. The driveway at the Primary School is wide enough to accommodate the two lanes. At the Upper Elementary School, it will be necessary for one lane of cars to ride on the grass for some distance. We appreciate your patience with us as we modify our procedures and processes in this current environment. Please know we are going to be monitoring our plans, and we will make adjustments as needed. Sincerely, Jennifer Albritton Superintendent

July 24, 2020 Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians, To eliminate any possible confusion brought about by speculation or rumors, I want to once again address our plans for reopening. At this time, the Taylor County School District still intends to move forward with the plans we communicated on July 14, 2020 with one exception. In order to allow more time for our faculty and staff to be better prepared to welcome our students, the start date for students has been changed to Thursday, August 6, 2020. I have updated the reopening guidelines for the date change and will post them to our social media sites. I would remind you that information is continually evolving regarding the reopening of school. We will communicate any changes to you as soon as possible. Sincerely, Jennifer Albritton Superintendent

High School Prom 5-28-20 It is with regret that we must cancel the 2019-2020 Taylor County High School Prom. We wanted so much to host the high school prom and have explored all possibilities under current safety guidelines. Unfortunately, we find that anything that meets the standards of social distancing and other safety measures will deviate so much from a traditional prom that it will not be an enjoyable occasion. We apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this may cause. The high school staff will follow up with more information. Jennifer Albritton Superintendent
