Chattooga County Schools have made the decision to have distance learning next week in advance of the scheduled Christmas break.
Due to rising Covid-19 cases and after speaking with Dr. Gary Voccio, the Director of the Northwest Georgia Department of Public Health, the Chattooga County School System has decided to go to their online distance learning schedule for the next week. In a press release sent out on Friday, Superintendent Jared Hosmer said that after speaking with Dr. Voccio he felt it was best, despite the fact that there is currently not a widespread outbreak in the school system, that distance learning for the 14th, 15th, and 16th of next week was a good idea. Students will resume school after the Christmas Holiday break.
Another area school, Dade county, has decided to go ahead and close school for the break a week early. It was announced earlier this week that yesterday, December 11th would be their last day.
Trion City School system currently plans to stay on a normal schedule until the original break begins.
