We are currently making plans for students in grades 10-12 (who did not opt to work from home for the first semester) to return to campus on Thursday, October 1. This is the most challenging group of students, as they are the most social both at and away from the school campus. Also, with students changing to various classes during the day, it is more difficult to map their contacts than it has been for our middle school students. For this reason, large groups may need to be quarantined if any student near them tests positive. If there is a question about your child's health, please keep him/her home and contact the school immediately. We are extremely excited to have so many of our students back with us, and our ultimate goal is to keep them healthy and safe.
Congratulations to Samantha Francis on her acceptance to Georgia Southern!
