Tattnall County Schools Mask Requirement

The Georgia Department of Public Health recommends wearing a mask to protect other people in case the wearer is unknowingly infected but does not have symptoms. The safety of Tattnall Schools staff and students is of the utmost importance to us. For this reason, masks will be required on all Tattnall Schools campuses and buses. Beyond promoting safety, we believe requiring masks will also help us to continue to have classes and groups meet within the building without required quarantines for large groups. We will still follow CDC protocols for required quarantines and notification of possible exposures. We know everyone is anxious to get back to some sense of normalcy; however, we must ensure we are doing everything possible to keep staff and students safe. One mask will be provided to each student from their school, however, families will be responsible for cleaning and sanitizing the mask routinely. Masks that are brought to school must follow the school dress code as outlined in the Student Handbook. For more information, please visit the CDC links below:

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.

Child Find

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:

Director of Special Education
