Contributed Featured, News

Dear Morgan County Charter School System Community,

We have been closely monitoring coronavirus (COVID-19) with guidance from the CDC, Georgia Department of Public Health, Morgan County Health Department,and the Georgia Department of Education. As the situation has continued to change rapidly, our top priority remains the health and well-being of our school community. 

This afternoon, Governor Brian Kemp gave local school systems the ability to close school for up to two weeks to limit the spread of this virus. While there are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Morgan County, in the greater interest of public health, MCCSS will be closed for the week of March 16th -20th.  We will re-evaluate next Thursday, March 19th,  and determine if continued closing is needed and a reopen date.    During this closing, there will be no extracurricular activities, sports, school events, or field trips. As additional information and guidance is provided, updates will be shared.

Over this period, schools and buses will continue to be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected using COVID-19 approved cleaners. We ask our families to wash backpacks, coats, and jackets as soon as possible as well.

Your child(ren)’s teachers and principals will be sending out information regarding digital and distance learning in the near future. Information about COVID-19 will continue to be posted at https://www.morgan.k12.ga.us/

Especially in this uncertain time, we appreciate our community for their continued support. Please take the necessary precautions to keep yourself, your families, and the broader community safe.

Sincerely,

James R. Woodard

Superintendent
