 March 26, 2020 Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff: Today, Thursday, March 26, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp issued an executive order closing all public elementary and secondary schools for in-person instruction through April 24 with schools reopening to students and staff on April 27. Consideration for the remainder of the school year will be determined prior to April 27. We will observe spring break as scheduled the week of April 6 through 10 for students and teachers, and April 8-10 for 240-day employees. These unprecedented circumstances have interrupted some important events for our school system family, this is why we feel it is important for all of us to have some normalcy by keeping spring break as scheduled. Please take this time to try to relax, de-stress, rejuvenate, and enjoy time with your family. The extended closure still affects all programming at the schools, including before and after school activities, all athletic and extracurricular practices and competitions, general facility rentals, and weekend events. All remaining school scheduled trips through the remainder of the school year, district wide, are officially canceled. (Principals will work with individual trip sponsors regarding potential rescheduling or possible reimbursement options.) Employees will be contacted by their administrator/supervisor regarding their work schedules through the remainder of the closure. Employees are reminded to check their FCBOE email accounts regularly for any updates or changes. Virtual learning will take place throughout the closure (excluding spring break), and teachers of pre-kindergartners, kindergartners, and first graders will stay in contact with parents to ensure their children’s education progresses. 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 work toward resuming normal school operations on April 27.

As the number of COVID-19 (coronavirus) cases increase in Georgia and Fayette County, we now know that individuals in our Fayette County Public School community have been exposed to the virus either directly or indirectly. We want to remind you to take safety precautions such as self-quarantining if you have been exposed to someone who has, or might have, the virus. Frequently wash your hands, avoid touching your face, cover coughs and sneezes, and use social distancing to help contain the spread of the virus. If you think you might have been exposed to COVID-19, Georgia has a COVID-19 hotline. If you need assistance, please call (844) 442-2681. We extend our heartfelt support to anyone who has suffered as a result of this current situation, and we share with you our firm belief in brighter days to come. Thank you for your support of our school system. We appreciate your understanding, trust and patience. Stay well and stay safe.

March 17, 2020 Dear Parents/Guardians: Last night, Governor Brian Kemp issued an executive order closing all public elementary, secondary and post-secondary public schools in Georgia from March 18 to March 31 to help lessen the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). In compliance with the executive order, Fayette County Public Schools will remain closed through March 31. We will contact you by no later than noon on March 30 to inform you of school operations for April 1. Students will continue participating in virtual learning until normal school operations resume. Pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade teachers will provide parents with a list of non-digital activities, as well as digital resources, to continue studies. Modified work schedules that have been communicated to staff through their supervisor/administrator are still in effect. Staff should regularly check their FCBOE email accounts for any updates or changes. Families who need help with meals for any Fayette County student age 18 and under (and students with disabilities age 21 and under) can come to the following distribution sites Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for assistance: Spring Hill Elementary and North Fayette Elementary. Beginning tomorrow, March 18, Fayette County High will serve as a third distribution site, and starting Friday, March 20, additional distribution sites will open at Marnell Mobile Home Park, Four Seasons Mobile Home Park, Kenwood Landing Mobile Home Park, and Peachtree City First Baptist Church, all operating Monday-Friday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at all sites at the time of pick up. Pick up is drive-thru only, no food will be consumed on site. Children must be present in order to pick up meals. The number of meals received will be based on the number of children in the vehicle. As always, the safety of our students, staff and families remains our top priority. We will communicate with you when there is significant information to report. Remember that the most accurate source for information is the FCBOE website, so please refer to our website regularly for updates as they become available.

Kemp issued an executive order closing all public elementary, secondary and post-secondary public schools in Georgia from March 18 to March 31 to help lessen the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

March 16, 2020 Dear Parents/Guardians: Due to the Public Health State of Emergency for COVID-19 (coronavirus) issued by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp on March 14, Fayette County Public Schools will remain closed for students and staff through March 27. The closure affects all programming at the schools, including before and after school activities, all athletic and extracurricular practices and competitions, and weekend events. We will notify you by no later than noon on March 26 about the operational status of our school system for the week of March 30 through April 3. In these uncertain times, the safety and well-being of our community is a top concern. The school system is the largest business operation in the county, bringing together over 20,000 students (our consumers) and over 3,000 employees (our educators, support and operational staff) in schools and offices every day. As COVID-19 continues to spread in Georgia, with the number of confirmed cases increasing, and being that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has noted that the virus is growing via “community spread,” we feel it is our responsibility to take measures necessary to help prevent the spread of the virus in Fayette County. Within the last several days, the number of confirmed cases in Fayette County has also increased. It is important to note that at this time, we are not aware of any confirmed cases involving our students or staff. The extended closure will allow us more time to continue thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting all schools and buildings, ensuring the healthiest of learning and working environments once the statewide risk is lowered, and it is deemed appropriate for normal school operations to resume. Throughout the duration of the closure, students will continue participating in virtual learning. Teachers will contact students and parents through normal means of communication regarding instructions and assignments. Pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade teachers will provide parents with a list of non-digital activities, as well as digital resources, to continue studies. Modified work schedules that were communicated to staff on March 13 through their supervisor/administrator are still in effect. Staff should regularly check their FCBOE email accounts for any updates. Families who need help with meals for any Fayette County student age 18 and under during the closure can come to the following schools Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for assistance: Spring Hill Elementary and North Fayette Elementary. Distribution of food will be provided by a drive through service. We are looking at other planning and distribution options. Please look for future announcements from the school nutrition department. As always, the safety of our students, staff and families remains our top priority. We will communicate with you when there is significant information to report. Remember that the most accurate source for information is the FCBOE website, so please refer to our website regularly for updates as they become available. Thank you for your support and cooperation, and know we will move through this challenging situation together.

 

March 13, 2020 Dear Fayette County School Community: The health and safety of our students, staff and families is a top priority, and in keeping this priority at the forefront of all of our decisions, we are closing schools and administrative offices for students and staff starting March 16 through March 20 in an abundance of caution concerning COVID-19 (coronavirus). The closure affects all programming at the schools, including before and after school activities, all athletic and extracurricular practices and competitions, general facility rentals, and weekend events. Staff will receive modified work schedules communicated through their supervisor/administrator. Staff should also check the FCBOE website for updated information. It is important to note that there have been no confirmed cases of students or staff with COVID-19 at this time; however, we are aware of cases that have been confirmed in Fayette County. This closure is designed to limit social contact. While closed, we will continue to thoroughly clean and disinfect all schools and buildings. We will notify you by noon on March 19 about the operational status of our school system for the week of March 23 (our intention is to notify parents and staff on a weekly basis about school operations). Students will participate in virtual learning during the closure. Teachers will contact students and parents through normal means of communication regarding instructions and assignments for virtual learning. Pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade teachers will provide parents with a list of non-digital activities to continue learning as well as digital resources. Families who need help with meals for any Fayette County student age 18 and under during the closure can come to the following schools Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for assistance: Spring Hill Elementary and North Fayette Elementary. Distribution of food will be provided by a drive through service. Again, the decision to close schools for next week is primarily precautionary. While we believe our schools are currently a safe environment, we will take extra steps this coming week to ensure that we are providing the healthiest learning and working spaces for our school community. As always, the safety of our students, staff and families remains our top priority. Thank you for your support and cooperation. The most accurate source for information is the FCBOE website, so please refer to our website regularly for updates as they become available.
