Update from Cobb County School District

Per Governor, Cobb Schools will Remain Closed Through End of 2019-2020 School Year.

We have been committed to keeping our community updated about the rapidly developing situation with COVID-19. Throughout the process, we have relied on guidance from the Georgia Department of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as our state leaders.

In accordance with Governor Kemp’s guidance and to best prioritize student and staff safety, Cobb Schools will remain closed through the end of the 2019-2020 school year. Per executive order from Governor Kemp on April 1, 2020 all public schools and colleges in the state of Georgia will be closed through May.

Digital learning will not occur over spring break which is from April 6th through April 10th.

Food distribution will continue over spring break at all designated sites across Cobb County on Monday, April 6th.

Further academic guidance will be made available by the end of the day today.

No Student Checkout from 1:45-2:25 (OR 12:00-12:30 on early dismissal days) in the office. 
This is for the safety of all students at dismissal.

NEW KINDERGARTEN AND NEW 1ST GRADE REGISTRATION WILL BE DETERMINED AT A FUTURE DATE!

****New kindergarten registration is available online; however, parents cannot bring documents to the school at this time.  A new enrollment document drop off date will be announced in the near future.
