School Start Date Delayed to September 8, 2020
Our faculty and staff have been working so hard to prepare to start school during this unprecedented time. However, in the face of a distinct rise in cases locally, beginning school on August 10th is not in the best interest of our students, teachers or staff, so we have made the difficult decision to move our start date for both the face-to-face traditional learners and the virtual online learners to Tuesday, September 8, 2020.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause our parents and community, but we truly believe that this is best decision based on the most current and updated information we have. Please continue make sure that your child's school has your correct contact information and be sure to follow our school/district websites and our social media pages to ensure that you receive the most up-to-date school information, as well as any changes to our safety procedures.
It is my prayer that we remember that our common enemy is this terrible virus, and I know we all want work together to eliminate it. Please stay safe and stay #warriorstrong.

Return to School Plan for 2020-2021
Dear Tattnall County Students and Parents,
The Tattnall County School System staff members continue to prepare for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. While we believe that it is very important that our students and staff return to school as soon as possible, we also want to return as safely as possible. In order to ensure that our staff members are prepared to begin the school year, we have revised our school calendar. The start date will be Tuesday, September 8th for those traditional and virtual learners. We have also developed a Virtual Learning Option for students who are unable to physically attend school. We ask that the Bus Information Survey be completed for all students, both traditional and virtual.
Schools will contact each virtual school applicant to setup a meeting to discuss virtual schooling and to sign the student contract. We look forward to partnering with our students, staff, and families to make for the best learning experience for our students while protecting everyone. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Missing our students!
In accordance with IDEA regulations, the Tattnall County School system seeks to ensure that all disabled students (ages birth-21) who are in need of special education within its jurisdiction are identified, located, and evaluated, including those who are homeless, wards of the State, highly mobile, incarcerated, or are attending private school and home school. Final identification of students with disabilities and programming for such students occurs only after an appropriate evaluation and a determination by a Multidisciplinary Place Team.
If the “child find” progress indicated that a student may require special education and supportive services in order to benefit from regular education, the student shall be referred to the Multidisciplinary Placement Team to determine the student’s eligibility for special education services.
If you know a child with a disability not being served, please notify:
