General Parent Information Regarding COVID19

Dear Parents,

The Colbert County School system is in close communication with ADPH District Medical Officer Dr. Karen Landers regarding COVID-19. At this time, we have been advised by the Alabama Department of Public Health for Disease Control and Prevention to cancel all school-related events and activities until April 30th.

As we receive information, we will post updates to social media pages and the school website. Dr. Satchel will also call everyone on all-call and leave a detailed message with information.

In the event of school closures, classes will be offered online and Chromebooks will be available for checkout. If your student does not have Wi-Fi, your student may complete assignments that are available for download without an internet connection. Your student may also take home a paper packet with class work.

The health and safety of your students, our campuses, and our communities are of utmost importance. We will continue to remain in close contact with the Alabama Department of Public Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

We are prepared with a plan in place to address the need for areas of isolation, food distribution, and various student needs. Please know that the precautionary measures taken are to ensure the overall safety and well-being of all Colbert County students.

For additional information, please contact Dr. Gale Satchel -gsatchel@colbert.k12.al.us ,Lead Nurse Emily Lanier -elanier@colbert.k12.al.us and Family and Community Liaison Chelsea Yarber-cyarber@colbert.k12.al.us.

Letter from Dr. Mackey, State Superintendent of Education

A letter from Dr.Mackey📢

Superintendents,
 
Under this state of emergency, please excuse any students who are absent from school Monday, March 16, 2020 through Wednesday, March 18, 2020. Expecting high absenteeism, we will be seeking a waiver on attendance for these days for accountability reasons.

Working with the local superintendents in some communities, we have already closed some schools beginning Monday based on potential enhanced threat of exposures in those schools. If you feel like you need to close schools, you have that authority under the executive order, but please notify me as quickly as possible if you do so.
 
Thank you for your continued diligence,
Eric G. Mackey
State Superintendent of Education

General Parent Information Regarding COVID19

Colbert County Schools wishes to assure our school communities that plans for student meals are currently being formulated with an emphasis on convenience and safety.  We continue to get minute-by-minute updates and guidance from the Alabama State Department of Education that assists us in making our best plans.  Exact details will come when logistics have been finalized.  Your patience and kindness are appreciated.  Parents who wish to keep their children at home beginning Monday, March 16th, are welcomed to do so and student absences will be excused up until statewide school closing on Thursday.

However, Monday -Wednesday, we will serve hot meals and have computer devices available to check out.
 
We will not worry about mid-term exams at this time.

As always, thank you for keeping safety a priority.
