From Coweta County School System

Dear Parents, 

The Coweta County School System ends the first semester on Friday, December 18. We hope that everyone has a happy, healthy and restful holiday break. 

Our second semester begins for students on Tuesday, January 5, and student instruction will begin on that day. Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in our community, and the Department of Health’s prediction of increased cases to follow the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, we will begin our second semester in a modified format: 

  • High Schools will begin the semester with all students participating in virtual learning during January 5-8. We anticipate beginning face-to-face instruction on Monday, January 11, in either a hybrid or regular weekly schedule. The school system will assess COVID-19 conditions in our community during that week to make that determination. If virtual-only instruction creates a hardship for households during this week-long period (because of no internet connectivity at a home, for example), contact your school’s administrator for support.
  • Middle Schools will begin the semester on January 5 with both face-to-face and virtual instruction. Parents who have opted for face-to-face instruction, however, may choose for their child to receive virtual instruction during the first week, January 5-8. Allowing parents this choice will reduce the numbers of students in classes during the first week back, and give parents and school personnel the opportunity to assess community and school conditions. All students who have opted for face-to-face instruction are expected to return to school by Monday, January 11.
  • Elementary Schools will begin the semester on January 5 with both face-to-face and virtual instruction. Parents who have opted for face-to-face instruction, however, may choose for their child to receive virtual instruction during the first week, January 5-8. Allowing parents this choice will reduce the numbers of students in classes during the first week back, and give parents and school personnel the opportunity to assess community and school conditions. All students who have opted for face-to-face instruction are expected to return to school by Monday, January 11.

We will continue to monitor COVID-19 in our community through the Christmas and New Year’s break. We continue to make assessments about school operations on the basis of health guidance, COVID conditions within our community, and on a school-by-school basis. If local conditions related to COVID-19 significantly worsen – either before or after the start of the new semester – we will consider the option of shifting schools, grade levels or the system as a whole to all-virtual instruction or hybrid schedules (week-on, week-off). 

Our school system is committed to providing quality instruction for our students as well as maintaining the safety of our students and staff members. We will update parents on any change to school operations before the start of the new semester on January 5th.
