Dear Coweta County School System Family,

Last week’s tornado continues to have a profound impact on parts of our community.  District staff members and I have visited and assessed affected parts of our community and are heartbroken from the damage that our community has suffered.  We recognize that daily school operations for all Coweta County Schools have been greatly impacted by this disaster.

Utility workers are working around the clock with assistance from law enforcement safety personnel and School Resource Officers which greatly affects daily school operations and safety in a negative manner.  Upon guidance from Emergency Management and local law enforcement, it continues to be inadvisable for us to open schools for the remainder of this week. As a result, the Coweta County School System will be closed for all schools from March 30th through April 9th.  This closure includes the week of April 5, Spring Break. This will allow our emergency responders and utility providers time to focus on those most in need.

We will continue to consult with our local government, law enforcement and emergency management partners to plan a safe opening for schools on April 12, 2021.  I appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this very difficult time.   Please continue to stay safe and take care of each other.

Sincerely,

Evan Horton

Superintendent, Coweta County School System
