District Update - March 15, 2020 

Out of an abundance of caution, we are amending the initial communication sent from school officials on Friday, March 13, 2020. While we desire to provide full services for students and families, we must ensure we are protecting all stakeholders from increased exposure. We will proceed as originally planned in providing school access on Monday, March 16, 2020; however, school hours have been changed from 8:00 AM until 1:00 PM ONLY. After 1:00 PM on Monday, March 16th, all schools will be closed until further notice.

We are requesting that stakeholders do the following:

= Check the school website for directions and guidance to access VERGE.

= CALL the school for guidance before visiting the school

= Only visit the school on March 16th to pick up student medication or hard copies of Virtual Learning Assignments (VERGE) for students without technology

Grab and Go lunches will be provided daily Monday through Friday from 10:00 AM -12:00 PM at Canby Lane Elementary School or Bethune Middle School. Please continue to monitor DeKalb County School District website and the local school website for future updates. Thank you.
