Schley County Schools will continue in person instruction for the second semester beginning January 5, 2021. Although we believe this learning option is best, a virtual learning option for current virtual students may be extended for the second semester of 2020-2021 for those students who successfully completed their current online curriculum. These students may apply to continue with the Edgenuity platform by completing the following application at https://5il.co/n90h. If plan to continue as a virtual student, please complete and return the virtual form prior to December 4th. If a student does not apply, we will assume they are returning to in person instruction January 5, 2021.

Parents, If your child is issued a laptop then it is strongly recommended that you pay a $10 insurance fee that covers accidental damage or repair items. If you have not yet completed the form and paid the $10 fee, the form can be found at https://5il.co/n7e4. Please complete and return to your child's school.

November 13, 2020 Dear Parents, As we wrap up our second week of November, I want to say thank you to our teachers for their daily efforts. They have been asked to adapt to a number of changes that would never occur simultaneously in any given year. They have continued to try and make the best of each situation. I greatly appreciate their hard work for our students. Our task as a community is going to continue to be challenging as cooler temperatures move more activities indoors for longer periods of time. Spacing will not always be favorable in each setting. Mask wearing is important and the best option we have to sustain protection for indoor group settings. The inconvenience or uncomfortable nature of wearing one is shared by all, but it is something each person can choose to do in order to keep others safe. Please be reminded that afternoon assistance remains available for virtual students at each school. If you have questions or need specific individual help, message your assigned teacher to make use of this extra assistance. Please continue to help us stay safe and healthy by: • Masking up • Staying home when sick • Physically distancing as much as possible • Sanitizing hands regularly To ensure you are provided with the most recent information, please see the weekly status report below. This information provides the total number of active COVID-19 cases reported by our system to DPH, as well as the total number of quarantines as a result.

Dear Parents, Early this morning we were made aware of a disturbing social media post from a high school student. Local law enforcement was notified, along with the student’s parents. The student was met upon arrival to campus and was turned over to the sheriff’s office for further investigation. Thanks to parents who promptly notified the school. This situation was responded to in a rapid manner. Initiation of our safety protocols and involvement of local law enforcement ensured that all students and staff were safe and secure.

Starting September 14, 2020 all students enrolled in the Schley County School System will receive free breakfast and lunch under the Seamless Summer Feeding Program. We will also be providing free breakfast and lunch to virtual school students and siblings of virtual school students from ages 2-18. Our school foods staff must receive an order from virtual school students in order to account for all children in the household and establish an accurate count for deliveries. Students will receive free meals until December 31, 2020 or until such time that USDA allows this program to continue. A Free and Reduced Application, one per household, needs to be completed if you have not done so already. Free and Reduced applications are located under the school websites under school nutrition or at www.myschoolapps.com. When the program is finished, students will revert to their original lunch status (Paid, Free, and Reduced). Balances will remain in MySchoolBucks until needed at the conclusion of this program. If your child’s lunch account has a negative balance as of today, you will be responsible for that. You can find your child’s lunch balance at www.myschoolbucks.com .

We look forward to the return of our middle school students tomorrow Sept 8th and high school students on Sept 14th. We encourage masks be worn within each building. Students who have fever or display any other symptoms of illness should not attend classes. For a safe return, students must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications. Anyone awaiting Covid test results should not return until results are returned. Thank you for your continued support.
