March 15, 2020

Dear Parents,

Out of an abundance of caution, and with the realization there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 in Charlton County, the Charlton County School District will close effective Monday, March 16, 2020 until Friday, March 20, 2020.  We will evaluate the continual closing of school on a weekly basis as the information surrounding this issue changes rapidly. All school activities, practices and rehearsals are canceled.  Decisions concerning make-up days, other school activities and changes in remaining school year calendar will be made at a later date.  In addition, information for at home learning resources will be announced tomorrow. 

Public health officials continue to advise best every-day healthy practices like frequently washing hands and staying home when you are sick.  We are all being encouraged to be protective of the elderly and any medically-fragile family members.  For the best information we encourage you visit the following websites: https://dph.georgia.gov/novelcoronavirus and https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html. Additionally, the Georgia Department of Education has released information at https://www.gadoe.org/External-Affairs-and Policy/communications/Pages/coronavirus.aspx   

We are committed to transparency and will continue to update our web page https://www.charlton.k12.ga.us/ with COVID-19 information. This situation continues to evolve and information will be provided as necessary.
