This week the recent increase in community spread of COVID-19 in our community has started to have a more significant impact on the Coffee County school district. Due to an increase in positive cases among the staff and students at Coffee County Central High School and Coffee County Raider Academy, these two schools will be distance-learning/virtual only from October 29 through November 6.
All other schools in the district will be on their regular schedule of in-person instruction Monday through Thursday. Coffee County Schools will remain distance-learning only throughout the district on Fridays. The teacher in-service day that was scheduled for November 3 due to the election is still in place. No in-person or virtual classes will meet on November 3.
Director of Schools Dr Charles Lawson stated that the district regrets that this places additional burdens on families and the community. He said, “This decision was made in order to keep our students as safe as possible during this time.”
This week’s home football game against Riverdale has been cancelled.
