April 1, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff:


Today, April 1, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp issued an executive order closing all public elementary and secondary schools for the remainder of the school year in an effort to protect the health of the state’s students, their families and school staff as communities across Georgia continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rest assured that your teachers, administrators, and our county office staff will remain in contact with you as we all navigate our way through these uncharted waters. We understand the effect that this closure is having on our students, parents and staff, not just in maintaining the progression of education, but also in dealing with the social/emotional and economic impacts that have come along with it. We stand with you and your family, and are working hard to ensure that we meet the needs of everyone in our school system.

Virtual learning will continue as it has been, and teachers of pre-kindergartners, kindergarteners, and first graders will stay in contact with parents to ensure their children’s education progresses. Employees will be contacted by their administrators/supervisors regarding their work schedules. Employees are reminded to check their FCBOE email accounts regularly for any updates or changes.

These unprecedented circumstances have interrupted some important events for our school system family. In order to keep some normalcy, we will have spring break as scheduled, April 6-10 for students and teachers, and April 8-10 for 240-day employees. Please take this time to try to relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy time with your family. Virtual learning will restart April 13.

We know our high school seniors have been looking forward to their graduation. We are going to do all that we can to ensure this monumental milestone is celebrated. Contingency plans are being discussed and our high school principals will communicate them to their graduating seniors as soon as they are finalized.

Meal service sites will continue to distribute breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to children up to age 18 and children with disabilities up to age 21. The number of meals provided will be based on the number of children in the vehicle. On Friday, April 3, children will receive enough meals to last the entire week of spring break. The following locations are serving meals: 
·       Spring Hill Elementary – 100 Bradford Square, Fayetteville, GA 30215
·       North Fayette Elementary – 609 Kenwood Road, Fayetteville, GA 30214
·       Fayette County High – 1 Tiger Trail, Fayetteville, GA 30214
·       Marnell – 1512 GA 54 W, Fayetteville, GA 30214
·       Four Seasons – 100 Apollo Drive, Fayetteville, GA 30214
·       Kenwood Landing – 225 Club Drive, Fayetteville, GA 30214
·       Peachtree City First Baptist Church – 208 Willowbend Road, Peachtree City, GA 30269

Thank you for your support, patience, trust, and understanding as we all work through these challenging times together. Please continue to use the Georgia Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control recommendations for staying safe and healthy, and remember that the FCBOE website is your official source for school system information.
