Oatts said in a message for staff, parents, students, and the community:
“I hope that you and your family are safe and that you are taking all necessary precautions as we continue to deal with the COVID-19 public health crisis. I also wish to commend our teachers, staff, and parents for their diligence in digitally ensuring instructional continuity for our students. Please know that I understand the nature of the compounded challenges that you are experiencing in acclimating to a protracted ILD schedule – managing your kids’ digital learning experiences, stocking up periodically on groceries, and perhaps dealing with the impact of COVID-19 on family, friends, and loved ones. My commitment is to ensure optimal district support as we navigate this unprecedented public health crisis together.”
Proms for Rockdale County High School, Heritage High School, Salem High School and the annual school banquet for Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology have been canceled. Please check with your school for further details.
