About an hour ago, the water department responded to a broken water line in the south end of the county that has affected L.K. Moss's water supply. At this time, we are not closing and are making the best of the situation. We will keep you updated if further problems arise.
In case students come home talking about it, we want to let you know that the county was doing maintenance on their fire hydrants this morning and it caused a brief interruption in our water pressure.
We currently have 2021-2022 PRE-Kindergarten registration openings available. Please call the L. K. Moss Elementary School for more information.

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.
