Parents, Students, and Staff, It has become increasingly apparent that we are dealing with a large number of students and staff members that are out of school due to sickness or quarantine. For the health and well-being of our students and staff members, we have made the difficult decision to close our schools on November 19th and November 20th. We will also implement distance learning for the in-school students November 30th–December 4th. Please know that we will make efforts to disinfect our school buildings and buses. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. I hope everyone will enjoy Thanksgiving break, and we look forward to getting back to school virtually on November 30th and in-person December 7th. Respectfully, Jennifer Albritton Superintendent

"Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it." - William Arthur Ward The Food Drive was a success! 777 boxes of food were received and distributed. Despite having busy schedules, each one of the volunteers made the project appear easy. None of the efforts went unnoticed. We are especially thankful that so many people were on hand from various areas and jobs within the community in spite of the weather forecast. We were blessed to complete the mission without fail or bad weather. TEAM: Together Everyone Achieves More

Thank you to the Georgia Strawberry Festival for providing a mobile Wi-Fi device for our school system. Since many of our students have chosen distance learning this semester, this device will help provide internet for our students in need. This generosity is greatly appreciated as we endeavor to navigate these unprecedented times. While we strive for our vision of an inspiring future for all students, it is essential that we have the support of community partners. The Georgia Strawberry Festival is making a difference in the lives of our students.

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.
