I am honored and thrilled to be your principal at Johnson Elementary. We are excited about our upcoming 2021-2022 school year. Children come first at Johnson and we are committed to providing the best possible education for every child in a safe and nurturing environment. We want you to partner with us and be a part of our Johnson family. Our teachers invite ongoing communication with families and my door is open. I appreciate your input and look forward to working with you and your child this year.

Muscogee County School Updated Reopening Information

The Muscogee County School District will begin the 2021-2022 school year with masks required indoors for all students and staff, regardless of vaccination status. Given the marked increase in multiple COVID-19-related indicators in the Columbus area, recently updated guidance by the American Academy of Pediatrics and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and upon the recommendation of the Muscogee County School District Medical Panel, the District has modified its reopening plans to require indoor masking as a mitigation measure. All employees and students should add clean masks daily as part of their back-to-school supplies.


The safety and welfare of students and staff remains a top priority for the Muscogee County School District. This recommended added layer of protection is meant to promote the safe return to in-person instruction, help us do our part to further reduce transmission of the virus in our community, and to maintain continuity of operations of MCSD sites and the community at large. The Muscogee County School District stands ready to work with schools and families to ensure our students can safely return to school in-person, full time for the 2021-2022 school year. The District, in concert with the local medical panel, will continue to monitor local health indicators, making adjustments as warranted
