As the safety and health of all students, staff and our community continue to be the top priorities of Bryan County Schools, our district will implement school closures beginning on Thursday, March 19. We are waiting for guidance from the state before we are able to forecast a date for returning to school. Please keep in mind that tomorrow, March 17, is a pre-scheduled school holiday and April 6 – 10 is spring break. In anticipation of a lengthy school system closure and in an effort to limit disruption and reduce loss of instruction, we will move to a digital learning environment. This will reduce our need to institute make-up days and help us maintain some sense of normalcy with our school calendar. In order to finalize preparations for this digital learning environment, our staff will be working with students on Wednesday, March 18 to prepare them for this alternative form of instruction. Detailed information from your student(s)’ school(s) will be sent to you that addresses the digital learning process and expectations for completing assignments. If you feel the need to keep your child home on Wednesday, March 18, this will be considered an excused absence. However, please know that every school and bus will have been disinfected prior to their return on Wednesday. Beginning Monday, March 23, Bryan County Schools will be providing breakfast and lunch to families that are part of our free meals program. Additional information regarding this process will be sent to families that might be impacted by our school breakfast and lunch program. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we work together to navigate these unprecedented waters. Please continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with local, regional and national health agencies regarding COVID-19. Thank you for your commitment to your families, Bryan County Schools, and the amazing community where we reside.

Bryan County Schools has no higher priority than the health and safety of our students, staff, and families in our community. We remain in close contact with local, state, and national agencies regarding the emergence of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the U.S and actions we can take to help prevent the spread of the illness. We have put into place additional resources for preventive cleaning and sanitizing our facilities and vehicles. We are also exploring the feasibility of online learning in the event it becomes necessary. BCS encourages students, parents, staff, and the community to follow the guidance of the Georgia Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in taking precautionary measures to limit the spread of the virus including washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue and dispose of used tissues, and call your healthcare provider if you are sick. To learn more about COVID-19, visit www.cdc.gov for current information and how to protect yourself and your family from getting and spreading the virus. Again, our most important concern is the safety and well-being of our students, employees and community. We will keep you informed of developments that impact you and thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this time.
