"MCSD Parents: Our District is
continuing to make preparations in light of the COVID-19
pandemic. While there have been no confirmed cases of
COVID-19 in our schools and community, we will proceed with
an emergency closure, in light of the public health
emergency declared by Governor Brian Kemp earlier today. The
closure is effective March 16-April 5, 2020. Students should
not report to schools or bus stops during this closure. The
District will reevaluate options to resume its operations
during this time of closure.
Although our sites will be
physically inaccessible, we will continue student learning,
as outlined in our Pandemic Plan, during this timeframe.
Please note the following details related to this measure:
• Teachers will deliver instruction through the designated
digital and print resources under the direction of their
school administrators. Your students were provided these
items Friday, March 13. If your student was issued a digital
device, please reference our District website for details
regarding digital device usage and responsibilities.
Instructions related to student submission of work will be
specifically outlined by each school’s administrative team.
• School administrators will be on-site to make final
preparations for closure Monday, March 16, 2020. During this
time, parents/students can receive printed packets and other
resources to prepare for closure.
Options to ensure meal
availability for students during this closure are being
explored. The Georgia Department of Education recently
received approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) for alternate meal services. We will notify you once
we receive details regarding this information.
prepare to enact this measure, it is important that you
review your student’s personal and emergency contact
information to avoid any gaps in communication. I also
encourage you to frequently check your emails, text
messages, and other forms of frequently used communication
from your school. Updates and notices will be delivered
through our mass messaging systems.
Please keep our
community in the forefront of your mind as we take
additional steps to prioritize our students’ and employees’
health. We must work together to address this unprecedented
level of pandemic for our nation and community. We encourage
you to continue taking the necessary measures, as
recommended by public health agencies, to keep you and your
families safe. Thank you for your cooperation and
consideration in this important matter.
David F. Lewis, Ed.D.,
Superintendent of Education"
The NCES staff is dedicated to ensuring our students
stay engaged during this time. All students have been or
will be provided a paper or digital work packet for the next
10 days. (Digital packets will be sent by 6:00pm, Sunday,

each day, so please help your children pace themselves as
they work through it.

instructional needs. Please be patient as we work remotely,
trying to address everyone's questions and needs.
