All Virtual Learning For Coweta Students on Friday, March 12
From the Coweta County School Board
Coweta County schools will hold a virtual-learning day for all students on Friday, March 12, in order to allow CCSS employees to receive COVID-19 vaccinations. All students will receive instruction online or remotely on this day.
The Coweta County School System is working with the Georgia Department of Public Health to make COVID-19 vaccines available to CCSS employees, once educators and those working in educational facilities become eligible for vaccines next week. As a part of that effort, vaccines have been provided to Coweta school system personnel, and CCSS and DPH are scheduling vaccination pods for school system employees to be held on Friday, March 12, and Friday, March 19.
It is recommended that school systems plan their vaccine distribution to allow 24 – 48 hours for a recovery period for those receiving the vaccination. This March 12 virtual learning day will allow for vaccinations on that day and a weekend recovery period for employees who receive the vaccine, and a return to typical instruction on Monday, March 15. Friday, March 19, is an already-scheduled teacher workday, and will not affect in-person learning schedules.
We appreciate the work of the Georgia Department of Public Health, District 4, in securing these vaccinations for school system personnel. These vaccination opportunities are a tremendous support for educators and school personnel, and allow our schools to continue to provide in-person instruction for our students.
We understand that the unscheduled virtual learning day may be an inconvenience for families. However, the health and safety of our students and staff is a top priority. We greatly appreciate the patience and support of Coweta families as we take steps to ensure continued face-to-face education within our schools.
