GORDON COUNTY SCHOOLS WILL REMAIN CLOSED TO IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR!
In compliance with Governor Kemp’s executive order issued this afternoon, Gordon County Schools will remain closed to in-person instruction for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. School system officials are working to outline a framework for instruction for the remainder of the school year, and further guidance will be shared after spring break.
Plans for rescheduling special events will also be announced at a later date. We are extremely saddened for our seniors, and we know how important graduation ceremonies and other events are for them and their families. Please know that we will make every effort to reschedule these events once it is safe to do so.
Gordon County Schools will continue its meal service to students after Spring Break, serving five breakfasts and five lunches per student each week. However, deliveries will be made only twice a week to limit person-to-person contact as much as possible. A new schedule for deliveries will be posted soon. Additionally, a supply of shelf-stable items will be made available this week to families in need for use during spring break.
Please also note that the Governor has issued a state-wide shelter-in-place order. We encourage all of our families to adhere to the order and continue to practice strict social-distancing, as well as other CDC guidelines, such as frequent handwashing, recommended for preventing the spread of the virus.
This is not the end-of-the-year we wanted or expected for our students, but we will continue to work through this to make the best of the situation at hand. As we embark on spring break next week, we encourage each of our students, staff members, and families to enjoy a much-needed time of relaxation as we prepare for the coming weeks.
