DeKalb County School District is continuing to collaborate with and follow guidance received from the DeKalb County Board of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Department of Public Health. We are also adhering to decisions and rulings made by the Georgia Department of Education and the Governor’s Office. As announced yesterday by Governor Kemp, DeKalb County School District will remain closed until April 24, 2020. As a district, we recognize that we must remain flexible as the COVID-19 pandemic is ever changing. In an effort to continue serving our students while simultaneously considering the safety, health and well-being of our employees, we are making adjustments to our current operational plan. These changes are outlined below and subject to change or be amended.
DeKalb County School District will take a traditional spring break the week of April 6-10, 2020. There will be no digital learning during this week. Also, there will be no teleworking or on-site work unless approved by the Superintendent.
On Friday, April 3, 2020, students will receive five (5) days of meals in addition to their Friday meal. This will ensure that our students have food during the week of April 6-10, 2020.
MEAL SERVICE PLAN – (Amended)
Beginning Monday, March 30, 2020, we will transition to a modified meal service plan. Under the new plan, meals will be distributed on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Meals will no longer be delivered daily. Students will receive a two-day meal package on each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday as shown in the chart below:
The 21 meal distribution sites will remain operational and the bus meal delivery will continue following the amended plan of meal service on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
