February 1 to 5 is Severe Weather Awareness Week in Georgia. The following information is from the National Weather Service (https://www.weather.gov/ffc/swpw_2021), Peachtree City. It covers all types of weather and is good information to review periodically.
Dear Dooly County School System Families, We regret to inform you that Dooly County Schools will remain 100% virtual until February 22, 2021. The reason for this sudden change is due to recently issued quarantines for DCSS staff and COVID-related illnesses among faculty, staff, students, and households. The February 22nd date allows us to safely lift existing quarantines and carries us through the upcoming Winter Break. We hope that we can return to the buildings when we are confident that we can better safeguard our students, staff, and their respective families, but unfortunately, this is not the time. Currently, we do not have enough staff available who can provide quality in person services to our students. Once our workforce can safely come back to the building, we will allow students to return. Until that time, students must continue to work online from home. Thank you for your understanding and patience. Respectfully, Dr. Craig Lockhart Superintendent,
