Tattnall Schools Closure EXTENDED

Post 3/27/2020:

Following the Executive Order from Governor Kemp, Tattnall County schools are extending the closure of public elementary and secondary schools through April 24.  Return date is April 27th.  Stay well and continue to follow the President's guidance for maintaining good health.

Our feeding program begins Monday, March 23rd. Please see the announcement on the district website for places and times (www.tattnallschools.org).  At this point, we will continue to implement our feeding plan on Mondays and Wednesdays each week through April 8th. We will suspend the feeding program during the week of spring break - April 13th - 17th.  Please remember that the child has to be present to receive a meal.

At this point, our school calendar will remain the same. Our spring break, which is scheduled for April 13-17, will remain the same as planned.

At this point, we have not developed any plan for make-up days.

State testing has been canceled.

Online resources are available on our district website (http://bit.ly/2xFjS5Y). We are providing these resources to help students remain engaged in the learning process; however, we are not concerned about assessing for grades. We encourage parents to use this time to love on and connect with their children. Here are a few ideas:

*Talk to your children about your family history/ancestry;

*Read to your child or have him/her read to you;

*Teach him/her how to balance a checkbook;

*Take a nature walk and enjoy the beauty of the world;

*Teach your child a life skill - how to change a tire, how to cook a meal;

*Have your child practice basic math facts, such as multiplication.

Please don't think that you have to recreate school at home. Once we are back to normal, we will pick up where we left off. We will make it through this together. #whateverittakes

Take care of yourself and your families!

Please continue to check our school websites and social media accounts for updates. We will also continue to utilize our normal communication tools.

Coronavirus - Tattnall County Schools Announcements

Post 3/13/2020:  After listening to Governor Kemp’s press conference yesterday and meeting with Tattnall County emergency and health officials, a decision has been made to close all Tattnall County Schools. We will continue to evaluate the situation to determine when we are safe to return to school, and we will communicate that decision via our normal communication avenues. This action is being taken in an effort to slow the rapidly spreading COVID-19 virus.  We recognize the hardship this decision places on many families, but protecting our students and staff, as well as the community’s health and well-being, are of the upmost importance to us.
School and district activities are canceled or postponed after Friday, March 13, 2020. This includes outside groups who may have been scheduled to meet at our schools.
Also, we ask you to continue following the COVID-19/coronavirus guidelines as shared by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that are posted on their website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/index.html. These include monitoring your family’s health for flu-like symptoms and reaching out to your local health provider if these symptoms occur.
Please know that this is a unique situation for Tattnall County Schools, our state and our nation. We do not yet have all the answers, but are committed to communicating with you as frequently and openly as possible via our normal methods of communication.
Your support and confidence during this unprecedented time is greatly appreciated.
