FAQ for Ware County Schools COVID-19 Response
Here are some frequently-asked-questions. This post will be updated as new questions arise.
1. Why are we going to school for just 1 day on March 16th?
A: We are trying to give parents and community members time to prepare for the extended closure.
2. Will students have to make this time up?
A: That is a decision the Georgia Department of Education will have to make. While we do not have a definitive answer at this time, indications point to students NOT having to make up missed school days. As soon as we have a clear answer to this, we will share it with the community.
3. I am not sending my child to school Monday. Will he/she be counted absent?
A: We will take attendance on Monday, March 16th. However, an absence this day will not count towards truancy.
4. I have a meeting at my child’s school on March 16th. Is it canceled?
A: We are not permitting visitors in the building at this time. Please call your child’s school to request an alternate meeting date and time.
5. Are you canceling prom or graduation?
A: It is too early to make that decision at this time. We hope to know more by April 9th.
6. Will my child continue learning during the break?
A: Each child will receive an instructional packet to take home on Monday, March 16th. If your child isn’t at school, you can pick up a packet between 2-4 pm.
7. When will my child receive a report card?
A: Students will receive report cards when we return from the break.
