Happy Spring Break Week!
Some of you may be disappointed that you aren't able to go anywhere this year, but we still want you to have fun! Go to eClass each day for a list of fun activities! There will be a different theme every day. We hope you enjoy this break from digital learning!
Open Food Pantries
There are several Food Pantries available in our area. Please make sure to call the food pantries first to confirm that they are still in operation and/or their hours have not changed. Food pantries often change their hours without notification. We do not want you to spend your time if the pantry is not available.

In the envent of cases being identified in our community, we would follow our public health partners' lead, implementing their recommendations. The school district has a response plan to support the health and safety of our students, staff, and community. In addition, we are following the guidance for schools issued by the CDC and Georgia Department of Health.
Please discuss the following with your child/children:
- Proper handwashing - The CDC indicates that both warm and cold water are effective. For more on this go to the CDC Website on Handwashing
- Not touching your face
- Covering your cough and sneeze
Our custodial staff has inspected all soap and paper towel dispensers to ensure they are in proper working order. They are also checking supplies frequently during the day. In addition, the custodians have reviewed proper cleaning and disinfecting procedures, paying close attention to high-touch surfaces (doorknobs, faucet handles, etc.)
Please remember that you should keep your student at home if he/she is sick. Students should not return to school until they have been fever-free for 24 hours.
If you would like more information about our schools' response, please go to the GCPS website. In addition, since this is a rapidly evolving situation, please refer to the Department of Public Health and the CDC for updates on COVID-19.
