Dear Bobcat Nation, First, let me thank you for your continued support and understanding as we, as a community, respond to the unexpected COVID-19 virus on our community. The Dooly County Athletics Department is very proud of the way our student-athletes, parents, staff and stakeholders have handled the demands we have encountered to protect everyone as we continue to progress through these most unusual circumstances. However, more work has to be done to ensure that we are able to get back on the field and be safe. As a result of some recent exposures to the COVID-19 virus, the Dooly County High Football team has been quarantined for the next 14 days. We are working diligently to adjust the schedule so that we can have a football season. The health and safety of our student-athletes is of the upmost importance. In abiding by the guidelines set forth from the Georgia Department of Public Health, we must shut down football operations for the next 14 days. During this time period, student-athletes are strongly encouraged to stay home and practice social distancing. Please see the adjusted football schedule. This schedule is subject to change if schools come down with COVID19 cases and programs shut down for the two-week period. 10/10/20 Dublin (Saturday Game; Time is tba) 10/16/20 @ Montgomery 10/23/20 @ Hawkinsville 10/30/20 Wilcox (Senior Night) 11/6/20 Treutlen 11/13/20 @ Johnson 11/17/20 @ Wheeler 11/20/20 Telfair Please understand that this decision is in the best interest of our student-athletes, coaches, and their families.

Dear Dooly Bobcat Parents and Guardians, As we plan for a possible in person return to school for families who wish to do so, we need to increase our survey results so that we can get an accurate number of family responses. Therefore, we are reopening the Parent Survey that was sent out last week. The deadline to complete the survey is September 23, 2020. If you have already completed the survey, please do NOT retake the survey. This is only for parents/guardians who have NOT taken the survey. We still have the original responses that were given, and this new data is used to get a better picture. Again, this is only for families who did not respond earlier. Please pass along to all Dooly friends and family you know.
