  • Updated COVID-19 Protocols for Hart County Schools 8/20/2021

    On August 19, the Georgia Department of Public Health issued new guidance for school districts regarding COVID-19. These new procedures will begin on Monday, August 23. 

    If a student is exposed to COVID-19, the parents will be notified via SchoolStatus. Exposed students will be required to wear masks at school and on buses for 14 days. The district will provide masks to those in need. Masking will allow continued participation in in-person learning, extracurricular activities, and school-sponsored events. 

    If you choose not to wear a mask you will have to quarantine at home for the 14-day period. While at home, students will not be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities or school-sponsored events. 

    As new guidance becomes available, procedures will be reviewed. Our goal is to continue in-person learning. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we continue to navigate the 21-22 school year!

    A sample of the text message and letter that parents will receive if their child is in contact with a positive case is included below.

The district is also purchasing backpacks with chromebook sleeves. 

    All meals, including breakfast and lunch, for ALL students next year will be free again. The USDA is extending their grant to all public schools in Georgia for next year (21-22 school year).
