Message from Fulton County Board of Education

All Fulton County Schools will be Closed on Wednesday, March 11, 2020
Posted by Communications Dept. on 3/10/2020 5:15:00 PM

FCS remains focused on the safety of our schools and community.  We are working continuously with our partners, local municipalities and health departments to provide you with updates and additional information.

All Fulton County schools will be closed on Wednesday, March 11, including all scheduled activities.  Students and teachers will not report tomorrow.  However, all central office employees and school-based employees, with the exception of Bear Creek Middle and Woodland Middle Schools, who work 210 through 235 days will report to their locations as usual on Wednesday, March 11.

All Fulton County schools, with the exception of Bear Creek Middle and Woodland Middle Schools, will reopen to all students and staff on Thursday, March 12.

While the school system is closed during this period, crews are cleaning and disinfecting every school and administrative building in Fulton County Schools.  All frequently-touched hard surfaces are being wiped down with a hospital-grade disinfectant that is proven to kill bacteria and viruses.  School buses are also being cleaned and disinfected and going forward drivers will use specialized wipes to disinfect seats after completing each morning and afternoon run.

Lastly, FCS has determined that Bear Creek Middle School will be closed to students and staff until Friday, March 20, with the school reopening on Monday, March 23.  Woodland Middle School will be closed to students and staff until Tuesday, March 17, with the school reopening on Wednesday, March 18.  We will share the specific details with Bear Creek and Woodland middle school families.

Based upon all of this information, FCS has also decided to cancel all international travel.

We ask that our staff and families continue to follow the COVID-19 guidelines as shared by GDPH and the CDC including monitoring you and your child’s health for fever and symptoms of respiratory illness including a runny nose, cough and/or shortness of breath.  Please call your local health provider for assistance if these symptoms occur.
