Dooly County School System proudly recognizes the Class of 2021-22 Teachers Matter! Educators. These teachers are recognized for going above and beyond by earning additional endorsements to their teaching certificates. These Teacher Leaders are working hard to improve their craft so they can be better teachers for students. Each recipient receives an annual stipend for earning endorsements as well as the title of becoming a Teacher Leader. Congratulations!
THIS MONTH’S COIN of DISTINCTION RECIPIENT: Mr. Marvin Williams From Captain David Jones, Nominator: “Mr. Williams is a man of many hats. I am not exactly sure what his job description is, but it probably falls under utility player because he can do anything asked of him and does it all while wearing a smile. Mr. Williams selfless service does not go unnoticed as he is well liked and respected by his peers and the students he encounters every day. If you can’t find Mr. Williams in the media center, just check the cafeteria, the hallways, a classroom, or heading up the concession stand. He is a jack of all trades with a dedication of loyal service to this school system and I highly recommend him for the coin of distinction.” It’s a GREAT Day to be Bobcat!

Updated Mask Requirements for Dooly County Schools
'Headed to the top': Dooly County Schools first in the mid state heading back to class https://wgxa.tv/news/local/headed-to-the-top-dooly-county-schools-first-in-the-mid-state-to-head-back-to-class
Dear Dooly County School System Families, The delta variant of the COVID-19 virus continues to plague our nation and the world. As of this writing, only 26% of the Dooly County population has been vaccinated, and children under the age of 12 are currently not eligible for vaccines. We are following CDC/DPH guidance, and masks are required on school buses and highly recommended in classrooms. The Principals and Teachers will let you know if they are requiring masks in classrooms/schools for health purposes. Requirements can change at any time, so please be flexible. We will follow public health guidance and alert families if long-term changes are necessary. Please bring masks to school, socially distance yourselves when possible, remain home when you are sick, and consider vaccination at your earliest convenience if you are able to do so. We will get through this together. Thank you. Respectfully, Dr. Craig Lockhart Superintendent
