Appling County Schools will return on Monday, August 17, with both in-person and distance learning.

The deadline to enroll in distance learning is Friday, July 31, to ensure students are set up in time for the first day.

Distance learning students will be committed to this program for the entire semester. The district will work with families to try to ensure each household has the necessary technology.

Distance learning students may participate in sports and extracurricular activities “to the degree that is feasible.” Ultimately, principals will hold the final decision on particular activities.

In-person learning will occur in traditional classroom settings with safety measures, including physical distancing, cleaning and disinfecting.

COVID-19 symptoms will also be monitored. Bus drivers or designated personnel will check students’ temperatures before they get on the bus. All car riders’ temperatures will be checked before they get out of their vehicle.

Bus drivers, personnel taking temperatures and any visitors will be required to wear masks.

Students and staff members can wear a mask from home as they see fit.
