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.
L.K. Moss SPRING INDIVIDUAL PICTURES: Wednesday, March 10. Due to the COVID-19 guidelines, classroom group pictures will not be taken.

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.
New businesses have been added to approved deliveries for Valentine's Day. We will post as businesses are added, and new businesses will appear at the top of the list: A & E Designs (229-262-0465) Shon's Designs (229-314-1982) The Dime Store (229-649-7211) Buena Vista Floral (229-649-7800) Front Porch Coffee Club (229-277-0077) Remember, a business does not have to be a member of the Chamber but must follow other protocols listed in the main article, including having a business license. Please contact the Chamber or Marion County High School if you would like to be added to the approved vendor list.
Remember, if you are a licensed business owner, you may contact the Chamber of Commerce or Marion County High School to be put on the list as an approved Valentine vendor and to go over safety protocol. You DO NOT have to be a member of the Chamber.
Valentine's Day is almost here! With social distancing and sanitary practices in place, the Marion County School System would like to make sure you are still able to send gifts to students should you choose to do so. We will observe Valentine's Day for the school system on Thursday, February 11th (as long as schools remain open at that time). Friday (12th) and Monday (15th) are scheduled holidays. We ask that you adhere to the following guidelines as you order and have items delivered to the schools: 1) All items must come from one of our PRE-APPROVED licensed vendors: The Dime Store, The Coffee Club, and Buena Vista Floral. These vendors have agreed to follow COVID safety protocols, assisted by the Chamber of Commerce. No one will be allowed to drop off gifts at the schools except for approved vendors. 2) All items should be delivered by the vendor to the Media Center at L.K. Moss and to the gym at MCMHS. Please be sure to provide the vendor with the homeroom teacher for elementary students and the last period/block teacher of middle and high school students. (Note: At the middle/high school, students will be given their items on the way to the bus.) 3) As usual, if your child or teen is a bus rider, balloons must be the small kind with a "stick": no large balloons will be permitted on buses. 4) Anything other than flowers must be fully wrapped in cellophane. 5) Details for L.K. Moss, including safe classroom celebrations, will be printed in this week's newsletter. The Chamber has approved specific organizations with business licenses to participate in our delivery process. This is for the safety of our students, as deliveries will be held to rigid safety standards and will limit the number of visitors to our campus. Please refer to the school reopening information posted on our website for detailed information. If there is a licensed business wishing to participate, please contact the Buena Vista Chamber of Commerce to review safety procedures for becoming approved.
Due to the numerous shutdowns that both of our basketball teams have experienced this season, we have made the difficult decision not to participate in any more basketball activities for this season. With player numbers already low and athletes having to be quarantined for two weeks, we feel that it would put our athletes at risk to ask them to play games without proper conditioning. Our number one priority is ensuring the safety of our students, our faculty, and our fans. Thanks for your support in our decision.
A faculty member at L.K. Moss has tested positive for COVID-19. If you or your child has had contact, you will be personally notified.
The Board Office will be closed to the public after lunch each day this week. You should be able to reach the Board Office by phone; both schools are also available by phone. This is a COVID-related situation that we are having to cover. Thank you for understanding!
Today, we have identified two positive cases of COVID-19 associated with L.K. Moss (one on a bus and one in the school). If your child was affected, you will be notified directly.
We are canceling tonight’s girl’s basketball game due to another Covid situation within our girl’s program. We are also suspending all basketball activities until further notice. This situation does not affect any students outside of the basketball program. Thanks for understanding!
Sophomores, don't forget to order your class ring tomorrow morning! Be sure to bring your deposit.
We are having to cancel tonight's basketball game against Manchester due to a possible exposure to Covid-19. We need more time to do some extensive contact tracing. This puts the boys game against Schley County on Friday in jeopardy as well. We will keep everyone updated as soon as we know more about the situation. Thanks for understanding.
We will reopen L.K. Moss to students on Monday. We are sorry for any inconvenience, but we are very fortunate that this was only a four-day closure. Although we are opening on Monday, there are a lot of kids who are under quarantine for contact. Those students SHOULD NOT return until their quarantine expires. Over the past week or two, we have had several instances where students came to school sick and had to be pulled from class. These students subsequently tested positive for COVID. PLEASE keep your children home if they show any signs of sickness; call Nurse Tiffany at the high school and discuss your situation (229) 649-7520. Remember, the best things we can do are: distance as much as possible, use a mask when appropriate, and keep hands washed or sanitized.
We have identified two cases of COVID in our middle school. If your child was directly affected, you have been or will be notified this afternoon.
Typically, a school closure is around 2 weeks; however, as we have gotten better at managing COVID situations and have become more aggressive with our quarantine, our hope is that our closures will possibly be shorter in nature. We are hoping this one will follow suit. We said that we would let you know about the opening today, but there are a couple of COVID tests pending results that are very important to our reopening. I plan to let you know by lunch tomorrow; our goal is to open very early next week.
The Board Office will be closed to the public after lunch each day this week. You should be able to reach the Board Office by phone; both schools are also available by phone. This is a COVID-related situation that we are having to cover. Thank you for understanding!
There is a link to a COVID-19 self-reporting form in the news section that you can use if you or a family member displays any symptoms of the virus. Once submitted, the form will go directly to Nurse Tiffany Wodzinski. If you feel more comfortable calling the school, that option is still available; this is just another avenue for reporting. We will use the information to assist with contact tracing in our schools, and your information will remain safe and secure. Thank you for assisting us with this important task!
LK Parents, Students and Families, First, let me thank you for your support and understanding as we, as a nation and community, respond once again to the unexpected effects of COVID-19 in Marion County. I am always very proud of the way our school system handles the demands we are faced with to protect everyone as we continue to educate and feed our students during the most unusual of circumstances. As you know, LK Moss will be closed during the week of January 18 due to employee positive COVID cases at school, and a large number of employees and students being quarantined. This situation has left us with too few employees to serve our students “in house”. While we are in the business of educating, our first priority is the safety of our students and our employees. Be assured, we have been working diligently to continue to serve all students in the most effective capacity possible, and it is the desire of all of our employees to have students at school for face-to-face instruction. Unfortunately, circumstances arise that cause us to resort to an alternative. For the upcoming week, lessons will be guided through TEAMS sessions, and online instruction. Your child’s teacher will make contact on Tuesday morning or before, to inform you of how this instruction will continue for the upcoming week. Since a large number of our teachers are quarantined and may not re-enter the building, we are unable to prepare packets for home use at this time. We are anticipating this to be a short closure; however, in the event it is extended, we will send packets as soon as we have ample staff to create these and get them out. Everyone must understand there is no way for us to please all as we make these decisions. Our priority is to keep everyone safe while still serving our students in the most productive and effective way possible under the circumstances. Thank you for your continued support and positivity as we strive to do what is best for ALL of our students and employees during these challenging times.
LK MOSS will be closed all next week. Multiple positive COVID results were reported today. On Wednesday, we will confirm the reopening date and will provide that information. Lunches will be delivered on Tuesday and Thursday for those who previously signed up. If you need to sign up, contact LK Moss on Tuesday morning. We apologize for any inconvenience and want to keep our students safe.
An employee at L.K. Moss tested positive for COVID-19 today. Parents/guardians of affected students have been notified. Please continue to monitor your children and report any changes in symptoms to the school.
COVID-19 numbers are still rising in our county, and I encourage you to be careful in your interactions with others. Inside the school buildings, we are still able to maintain in-person instruction; we are grateful to parents and guardians for communicating with us openly to help us be successful in these endeavors. Remember that Friday and Monday are a scheduled semester break. Employees will be working remotely on Friday, but the buildings will be closed to the public during this time so that we can thoroughly disinfect. Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr., Day. We will begin the 2nd semester on Tuesday, January 19th.
Over the weekend, community COVID-19 numbers have become concerning in our county. Although part of the increase in numbers may be attributed to delayed results on the Department of Health website from earlier in the week, Marion COVID-19 cases are steadily increasing. At this time, we are not experiencing high impact inside of our schools. Of course, this could change at any time. We ask that you help us by keeping us informed regarding symptom reporting. Please continue to keep children home if they are sick and to notify the school promptly so that we can begin contact tracing. Anytime we can prevent a particularly hazardous situation, it enables us to remain open for in-person learning. Remember that this Friday is the end-of-semester workday, which is a student holiday. Students will return to school on January 19th, after the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday. On this day, high school students will begin new classes. Students who have outstanding work for this semester must finish by Thursday, January 14th.
We currently have two middle school students who have tested positive for COVID-19. Parents/guardians of children in direct contact with those students have been notified. Students who were not directly exposed will continue with school as scheduled. Please continue to monitor your children and report any issues to the school.
Recently, the Marion County girls' and boys' varsity basketball teams, like many other sports programs, have been affected by COVID-19. At Marion County High School, we want to be extremely cautious when it comes to the health and safety of our school and community (as well as that of our opponents); therefore, we have made the difficult decision to suspend our varsity basketball program temporarily. We hope to be able to return to competition on January 22nd and apologize for any inconvenience. Please work with us to reschedule the affected games.
Happy New Year, everyone! Here is some information regarding our return to school on January 5. This will be a phased reopening. The number of positive COVID-19 cases in our county has increased this week. Because of this, Marion County Schools will follow a phased reopening plan. Because the current level of spread is high, we will continue to monitor the situation and may face further changes. All elementary students and students in grades 6-8 will return as scheduled on Tuesday, January 5. ALSO, high school students who are participating in EOC testing should return on Tuesday, 1/5. Tuesday’s EOC tests are Algebra I and ELA makeups. Wednesday’s tests include Biology and US History. Buses will run as scheduled but may arrive a few minutes early. All high school students (9-12) will return to class on Monday, January 11. (High school students are in their last few days of the semester, ending January 14. They also have greater class-to-classs movement than the younger groups.) Information regarding upcoming semester exams for students in grades 9-12 will be posted soon by individual teachers. Students, please check your Teams account and teacher web pages later this week. There will be no food delivery this week, but food pick-up is available. Further information will follow regarding semester exams and the finishing of fall courses. Please remember the following safety guidelines: Do not return if you have had direct contact with an infected person. Face masks are required on all buses and are encouraged inside the buildings. Please let the school nurse know if you have tested positive, are experiencing symptoms, or have been exposed.
Reminder! You may pick up meals at LK Moss TUESDAY (today) and THURSDAY between the hours of 11:00 - 1:00. Buses will also run their afternoon scheduled routes on TUESDAY (today) and THURSDAY to deliver meals for LK Moss students.
We have had another middle school student and staff member test positive for COVID-19 this afternoon. Please continue to monitor and report any issues with your children.
Since the previous announcement, new cases have arisen at the Middle/High School. With movement and mixing of kids at that level, it is difficult to contact trace all situations. Please monitor your kids closely over the next few days; report any developments to Nurse Tiffany.
Both LK Moss and the Middle/High School will be closed to students this week. Over the weekend there was a situation not related to school that caused some LK Moss personnel to quarantine. At the middle/high level, one student and one faculty member have tested positive, in addition to the positive test from last week. This has left us with so few staff members that we will not be able to provide services. All employees who are not quarantined should report to work as scheduled tomorrow. If you have been exposed, you have been or will be directly contacted. Teachers will make every effort to contact students tomorrow; please let them know if you would like lunch delivered. A bus will run on Tuesday and Thursday of this week to deliver meals for LK Moss students and on Wednesday for middle/high. There will be no meal service during the regularly scheduled holiday break. We apologize for any inconvenience and wish you a safe and happy holiday!
Attention L.K. Moss Parents: Please note that Friday, December 18 is an EARLY RELEASE DAY. Students will begin to load buses at 11:45 am. Students will arrive home approximately 3 HOURS EARLY. Car riders will begin loading at 11:45 am. Please plan early to provide supervision for your children on that day. Christmas Holidays are Dec.21-Jan.4, 2021. Have a safe and wonderful break. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!!!
A positive case of COVID-19 has been identified at the Middle High School. Parents of affected students have been notified. Students who were not directly exposed will continue with school as usual. We will continue to monitor the situation.
We have reevaluated our contact tracing, and students at the middle/high school will be allowed to return on Thursday.
I hope all of you had a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday. All employees will return to work on Monday the 30th unless you are quarantined. LK Moss students return Monday the 30th as well; middle/high students will come back later in the week. Please watch the website for specific updates. DO NOT come back if you have symptoms OR if you have been exposed to someone over the break who has symptoms. If this is the case, call your school on Monday.
All Marion County school facilities will be closed to the public tomorrow (Friday) to begin deep cleaning and fumigation. Office staff will be available by phone or e-mail from 8 to 11 a.m. Teachers will also be available by e-mail during regular school days and times.
We have had a student test positive for COVID-19 at the Middle/High School. A high school case can cause extensive issues. Due to quarantine issues, we will be short of staff members to carry out daily supervision. Marion Middle/High School will be closed as of the end of the day today and will remain closed through December 3rd. This DOES NOT impact L.K. Moss Elementary; currently, they plan to reopen as scheduled on November 30th. As always, if your child or teen has had direct contact with the affected student, you will be personally notified. Please watch the website for assignment information.
TOMORROW! WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 18: BUSES will run the routes to collect any paperwork that needs to be turned back in to teachers, AND drop off any new paperwork. Please meet your bus at the normally scheduled drop-off time. CAR RIDERS can come by to drop off any paperwork that needs to be turned back in to teachers, and collect any new paperwork. You may come by the school between the hours of 9:00 am and 11:00 am.
PARENTS: Buses are headed your way TOMORROW, Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at regular afternoon drop-off times! We will deliver student packets. Meet the bus where you would normally pick up your child. Provide the child's name and grade level. Friendly reminder....school personnel will hand you the materials. Stay at arms length away from the bus. Let’s practice our social distancing! See you all tomorrow! NOTE: Bus routes will occur again on Monday, November 16 and Wednesday, November 18 at normal afternoon drop-off times. PARENTS: On Wednesday, November 11, from 9:00 am – 11:00 pm, L.K. Moss car rider students can pick up their paperwork in a drive-through format. Cars will enter the campus through the far entrance, and proceed just as they do with car riders. No one is to exit the car. A school representative will ask the student’s name, and will retrieve the packets. Four cars will be served at a time. PLEASE NOTIFY YOUR CHILD’S HOMEROOM TEACHER IF YOU WILL BE PARTICIPATING IN THE DRIVE-THROUGH. We will need to pull your child’s paperwork and have it ready for pick-up. This procedure will be repeated on Monday, November 16 and Wednesday, November 18.
Effective tomorrow (11/10), ALL in-person L.K. Moss Elementary students will transition to distance (work from home) learning and will return to school on November 30th. THE MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL WILL CURRENTLY REMAIN IN-PERSON. A food service member at L.K. Moss has tested positive for COVID-19, and while there has not been a widespread outbreak, the entire food service staff must be quarantined. With no cafeteria staff, students would not have access to school meals. *There will be no lunch delivery during this time. While there has been no exposure to the students in the cafeteria, the affected employee also works in the transportation department. If your child was exposed via transportation, you will be contacted personally this afternoon. A couple of bus routes may run next week to deliver instructional materials and packets. Please watch the website for updates.
We feel that it is important to address two concerns that have been expressed through comments. The question was raised as to whether or not we had cleaned the affected room. As a follow-up to any positive case of COVID-19, the affected room as well as all of the rooms on the wing, the hallway, the nurse's station, the office and main hallway have been sprayed, cleaned and fumigated. The disinfectant that is being used to treat the school is effective for 21 days, and this cleaning is in addition to the scheduled rotation of every 21 days. The second question asked for the identification of the person who is positive. According to HIPAA Laws, we legally cannot give out identifying information as to who is a positive COVID-19 case. HIPAA is an acronym that stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. This law provides privacy standards to protect patients' confidential health information and medical records. Please be reminded that If your child has been directly exposed to someone at school who has tested positive, you will be personally notified. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we continue to keep the safety of our students, employees and community a top priority.
The ASVAB will be given on December 16th. Preference will be given to seniors. Juniors may test in the spring. Seniors, if you are considering a career in the armed forces, please sign up for the ASVAB as soon as possible. See Mrs. Jernigan for details.
An employee at LK Moss Elementary School has tested positive for COVID-19. Based on contact tracing and regulations, the situation has resulted in other employees and one class being quarantined. Students in classes where direct exposure did not occur will continue with school as usual. We will continue to monitor the situation in the upcoming days. If your child has been directly exposed to someone at school who has tested positive, you will be personally notified.
One of our high school employees had direct contact with someone outside of school who tested positive for COVID-19. The employee has been sent home to quarantine. We will continue to monitor the situation. As always, if your child or teen has been in contact with someone who tests positive, you will be personally notified.
We have had a high school student test positive for COVID-19. Based on contact tracing and guidance from the department of health, no student was determined to have direct exposure so no one will have to be quarantined at this time. We are posting this information in an effort to keep the community informed. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update you when necessary.
We will have an inter-squad football scrimmage on Thursday, November 5th. We will begin with Senior night recognition at 5:15. (Seniors and their 2 escorts are asked to arrive no later than 5:00.) The Homecoming Court recognition will be held around 6:00 during halftime.
LKMOSS Make-up Pictures are on Tuesday, November 3: We will also take pictures of virtual students on this day. This is OPTIONAL for all virtual students. Students will meet at the patio outside of the lunchroom according to the following schedule: 8:30 am: Kindergarten and 1st grade 9:00 am: 2nd grade and 3rd grade 9:30 am: 4th and 5th grade
Central of Talbotton has cancelled this Friday night's game. At this time, we are searching for another opponent. The Homecoming game may be delayed. If necessary, we will make additional plans to highlight our court and Seniors. Updates will be posted as they become available.
Due to student transitions throughout the 1st 9 weeks, report cards for elementary, middle, and high school will now go home on Tuesday, October 27.
Important Information: 1. We are sending home information about the INFLUENZA vaccine. 2. Check out our Facebook page for information about a Virtual Training for Parents. Chattahoochee-Flint RESA in partnership with South Georgia Technical College is providing virtual training for parents to better understand their child's virtual learning environment. Registrants will receive the training link after they have registered. October 29th @ 6-7:30pm (Microsoft Teams) Registration Link: bit.ly/sgtccfresa
Multiple services are currently down due to a Microsoft authentication outage. Services requiring office 365 are inaccessible. We are aware of the situation and monitoring for response from Microsoft.
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.
Our school system has identified its first COVID case, which occurred at the Middle/High School. This incident requires a small number of individuals to quarantine; parents of affected students have already been notified. Unfortunately, this will probably be our ongoing reality as we go through the next several weeks. Please assist us with our efforts by keeping children home when they are sick or have been exposed. Also, please notify the school of any COVID-related changes in your child’s health or environment. This will help us to manage individual situations successfully and to minimize the number of people who have to be quarantined.
It is extremely important to the success and future of Marion County and the City of Buena that have the most accurate census count possible. To date, we are at 35 % self-response which is not good and only you as an individual can change this number. Let us improve our numbers by simply clicking on the link below and complete the necessary information to be counted. This is for our future. https://my2020census.gov/app/intro/state
Marion County School System officials are continuing to monitor the weather associated with Hurricane Sally. At this time, there are no expected school closings for Marion County schools. However, there are concerns regarding the unpaved roads throughout the county as the rain continues. As changes occur, updates will be made available as needed. Stay safe!

Update and Information Regarding School Openings in Marion County This week, Marion County’s L.K. Moss Elementary welcomed back Pre-K students. Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade will start on September 9th. The remainder of L.K. Moss students (grades 3-5) will go back to school on September 14th. Teachers and staff are excited to welcome back students and are encouraging safe hygiene practices. As long as the community spread in Marion County stays stable, grade levels at the Middle/High School will be able to return soon. Normally, the school system has tried to give a week to a week and ½ notice prior to bringing back grade levels. At this point, grade levels will be added in more quickly. Please watch the website at www.marion.k12.ga.us for updates and information.
Dr. Medders will be offering a Zoom Meeting tomorrow, Thursday, September 3 at 1:00 pm for all Kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade PARENTS/GUARDIANS.

Marion County Schools Reopening Plan Beginning August 31, Marion County Schools will begin a phased reopening. This will begin with Pre-K and continue in steps through all grade levels. The reopening will serve students who originally planned to be face to face learners. Students who signed paperwork to remain at home will come back at the agreed-upon time. Please note that a school environment is fluid, with rapid changes. The school alone cannot control community spread numbers, although we will do our best to keep students in our buildings safe. These are the planned phase-in dates for Marion County students: August 31: Pre-K September 9: Grades K-2 All other students will be added based on improving conditions. Certain IEP services will begin soon; you will be contacted individually. Updates or changes to these dates will be provided via the newspaper and the Marion County Schools website (www.marion.k12.ga.us). As grade levels return for in-person learning, food delivery to those grade levels will be stopped. As the school system gets ready to reopen your child’s grade level, please work with teachers to determine changes in transportation and contact information. The following safety rules will help us to reopen and stay open: • Teach children to wash their hands thoroughly. Plan to provide personal hand sanitizer if possible. • Check for fever each morning, and DO NOT send a sick child to school. • If you, your child, or someone in your household has taken a COVID test, please keep your child at home until the test results are returned as negative. • Find a face covering that is most comfortable for your child. Be sure to send it each day, as face coverings are STRONGLY encouraged on our campuses and REQUIRED on buses. • Teach your child the importance of social distancing (no hugging, holding hands, or getting close to the faces of their friends and teachers). • This website has safety information that will be helpful in our phase reopening: https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/805416/Marion_s_Plan_to_Reopen_7.17.20.pdf Please remember that these dates may change. Visit the Marion County Schools website regularly for updates, or download our school system’s app. Let’s all do our PART (Practice good hygiene, Apply social distance, Remember to wear your face covering when appropriate, Take your temperature) to help keep kids in school!
Delivery Reminders MCMHS packets, information and lunches will be delivered on Monday and Wednesday. Pick-up is available from 11 AM until 1 PM. LK Moss packets, information and lunches will be delivered on Tuesday and Thursday. Pick-up is available from 11 AM until 1 PM. Buses leave the school at 3 PM. With the number of items being delivered, the bus may not get to you at your child’s regular bus stop time. If you have transportation questions, call Daniel Foster at 229-314-0296. If you would like items dropped at a location (within the county) other than the child’s normal bus stop, please contact your child’s school or Deana Powell at 229-649-2234.
Didn’t get your packet on the bus route? Please call the school and make sure that we have the child’s most current address. Remember that you may pick up any work at the school. Contact your child’s teacher prior to delivery day and we will have it ready! We hope that everyone has a safe and restful weekend!

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians, I have just been informed today of a situation that has potentially exposed some of our lunchroom employees within the community to COVID-19. We will be working with the Georgia Department of Public Health over the upcoming days. Out of an abundance of caution, school will be delayed and a new start date projection should be announced later this week. As a result of this decision, all scheduled open houses will be cancelled and rescheduled at a later time. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding that we are keeping the safety of our students and employees as our first priority. Sincerely, Glenn Tidwell Superintendent, Marion County Schools
