SCHOOL CLOSURES THROUGH MARCH 27

Due to the latest information from Governor Kemp concerning the Coronavirus, Calhoun City and Gordon County Schools are proactively closing school campuses for all students for a two week period through Friday, March 27, 2020.  Instruction will continue through homebound activities that will be shared with all students and parents on Monday, March 16th. This measure is to support local and statewide efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.

A professional learning day for faculty and staff is planned for Monday, March 16, 2020, at which time, teachers will continue to prepare learning packets and digital learning activities. Digital learning days will begin Tuesday, March 17, 2020.

Details about school nutrition services will be communicated as soon as possible. 

All school field trips and special events scheduled between now and April 13th will be canceled and/or postponed.  This includes parent-teacher conferences, musicals, concerts, etc. Upon students’ return to school, we are asking that visitors respect our desire to keep our students and staff safe and refrain from coming to school for lunch or other daily events within the school until further notice.
