Decatur County Schools to close beginning Monday, March 16

Dear Parents, Faculty, and Staff,

Due to the increase fear of spreading COVID-19 and at the guidance of the Governor’s Office, Decatur County schools will suspend all school activities and classes beginning Monday, March 16th for two weeks. This two-week suspension coincides with Spring Break so students will not return to school until Monday, April 6th.

It is the hopes of the Governor’s Office that keeping individuals isolated over this time period will better allow public health to identify and treat those infected with COVID-19 and reduce the spread.

During the time away from school our system has provided online resources for parents. Students can continue their active learning by visiting our web-page at There students can find more information and links to online learning activities. Please note, these resources are certainly not required but are available for your student at your pleasure.

This continues to be a fluid situation and we will keep you updated as the situation evolves.


Tim Cochran, Superintendent
