Return Plan Update

Based on current data and advice from a panel of local medical professionals, public health agencies, and hospital administrators, we will proceed with a virtual instruction model for all students, January 6-15, 2021. The District will tentatively return to the choice model for all students, January 19, 2021, pending further advisement from public health agenices. We will continue to monitor our community’s data related to COVID-19 during this time.

Please make sure your student:

  1. Places his/her learning device in a safe place to avoid damage or theft.
  2. Keeps each device fully charged.

Please contact your student’s assigned school, upon return to instruction, for assistance. To access our technology help line, contact us at 706-748-2271 during regular business hours.
