An Expression of Sympathy to the Family of Dr. Brian McCarthy On behalf of the Taylor County Board of Education and the faculty and staff of the Taylor County School System, we offer our condolences to the family of Dr. McCarthy. In his last few years, he has inspired us with his courage and determination as he continued to teach while having many physical limitations. Over the years, he has challenged our students and has left an indelible mark on our school system. In his memory, our schools will have a moment of silence tomorrow morning at 10:00 a.m. Our hearts are saddened by the news of his passing, and he will be greatly missed. With Our Deepest Sympathy, Jennifer Albritton Taylor County School 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: https://5il.co/j52d https://5il.co/jmuf Respectfully, Jennifer Albritton Superintendent

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.

An Expression of Sympathy to the Family of Mr. Wayne Smith On behalf of the Taylor County Board of Education and the faculty and staff of the Taylor County School System, we offer our condolences to the family of Mr. Wayne Smith. Our hearts are saddened by the news of his passing. He served the community for over thirty years through his work in the school system as a teacher, Curriculum Director, and Superintendent. He served with a positive and caring spirit. In his memory, we will be placing a wreath on the door of the central office, as well as on each school sign. He will be greatly missed. With our deepest sympathy, Jennifer Albritton Taylor County School Superintendent

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.

8-19-20 It has come to my attention that we have some concerns about the Primary School and Covid-19. I am not aware of a positive case at the Primary School that involves a student or staff member who has been at school August 17th through today, August 19th. From time to time, the District may become aware of possible exposures. When that happens, we will follow CDC guidelines for quarantining. If we become aware of a positive case, we will contact the Georgia Department of Public Health and also follow CDC guidelines. Following the guidelines, we would notify anyone who was potentially exposed to someone who has tested positive. Jennifer Albritton Superintendent

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
