TR1BE, With so much uncertainty remaining as we navigate our days, weeks, and months, we know that many questions are swirling concerning the plans of our upcoming school year. We could put out a plan today that would likely need to change multiple times as health concerns and guidance changes over time. We are not behind the eight ball. Rather, we are taking things seriously, studying our options, and formulating research-based plans of action for the new school year. Our leadership team in Lumpkin County is currently meeting through email, virtually, and in person to work out details for the following areas: student and staff wellness, facilities, technology, school nutrition, transportation, instruction, assessment, and virtual learning. These focus groups will work in coordination with our school board to publish a final plan in mid-July. In the meantime, it’s important for you all to know this—student safety has been, is, and always will be our top priority in Lumpkin County. As parents, you will have a face-to-face option and a virtual option for your children. What those look like will be determined by the findings of our focus groups over the next month. Rest assured, we are working tirelessly to provide the best education in the safest environment possible for your children. We know other school systems are posting their tentative plans now, and we want you to know that we aren’t asleep on this topic. We like to take a calculated, strategic approach to our planning process. If you have questions or concerns that you would like to share with any of the focus groups mentioned above, please email jason.lemley@lumpkinschools.com or rob.brown@lumpkinschools.com. We will be sure to pass along your correspondence to the focus group leader. Thank you for your continued support of Lumpkin County Schools!
