Tomorrow, March 18th, the Marion County School system will transition to distance learning for teachers, staff, and students. All buildings will be closed due to the potential for a significant weather event. The weather will potentially be worse in the morning when our buses and car riders/drivers are on the road. There is a potential for high winds, tornadoes, and loss of power. For more information, visit https://www.weather.gov/media/ffc/Briefings/Special_Briefing_Mar_17_1PM.pdf and view slides 12, 15, 17, and 26.

As of today, Governor Kemp has opened COVID vaccines for educators. We plan to offer vaccinations to our faculty and staff on Friday, March 12, at the high school in a drive-through format. This may cause some congestion near the gym area. This is a very positive step in the process of moving back toward normalcy and keeping people safe.

COVID Update: We have had a couple of COVID-related instances relating to school buses and one involving LK Moss. You will be notified if your child was in close contact. As of this posting, we are not in any danger of having to close schools. However, we are getting very close on transportation. This could mean an interruption on a couple of bus routes. If this were to happen, we would do our best to juggle drivers to try to prevent issues with our elementary students, which may affect middle/high routes. We will keep you informed. The worst-case scenario would be if we received information very early one morning or late at night that impacts our bussing. We are also continuing to have COVID-19 issues affecting our board office. Next week, the board office will be closed (available in person 9-11 a.m.) You can reach us by phone or you may call one of the school offices.
