SAVANNAH, Ga (WSAV) – The Savannah Chatham County Public School System announced Monday the decision to expand the Spring Break for students, teachers and staff. The decision complies with an Executive Order from Georgia’s Governor, Brian Kemp.

(SCCPSS release below)

Based on the Executive Order issued by Governor Kemp calling for the closure of all public schools in Georgia, SCCPSS announces a closure beyond the current Spring Break. The closure duration is subject to modification based on changing conditions. 

All schools are currently closed for Spring Break through Friday, March 20th, 2020.  Students will now remain out of school through Wednesday, April 1st, 2020, and will return to class on Thursday, April 2nd, 2020. 

After Spring Break, staff shall not report to work until Wednesday, April 1st, 2020, unless deemed part of the essential workforce as directed by his/her supervisor.

CLOSURE SCHEDULE:

Monday, March 16th – Friday, March 20th – Spring Break

Monday, March 23rd – Wednesday, April 1st – No school for students

Wednesday, April 1st – All Staff Return

Thursday, April 2nd – All Students Return

SCCPSS hopes to resume school operations for students on Thursday, April 2nd, 2020, but that is subject to change as healthcare concerns evolve.  Additional information will be provided to our families through the usual parent notification calls and emails, district social media accounts, SCCPSS.com, and local media. 

Specific instructions will be issued separately for staff regarding work schedules.

Governor Brian Kemp has placed Georgia under a State of Emergency due to the spread of Coronavirus. The school District continues to maintain regular contact with the Georgia Department of Public Health, Chatham County Health Department, and the Chatham Emergency Management Agency, to monitor Coronavirus impacts in our area. 

District staff have prepared for these conditions by making plans for the continuation of learning, meal service availability, and the cancelation of large group public events. Specific information on these topics will be provided tomorrow through the District’s communication channels and prominently displayed at sccpss.com.

Once again, all Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools will not reopen following Spring Break on Monday, March 23, 2020.  Instead, schools will remain closed through Wednesday, April 1, 2020.  Students will return to class on Thursday, April 2, 2020.
