eLearning

The District has made the decision to postpone graduation ceremonies until July 29-30. Officials will reassess health and safety guidelines for large events midsummer. If the District determines it is still unsafe to host the ceremonies in person, each high school will host a virtual ceremony on July 29-30. If the District is able to hold the ceremonies in person on July 29-30, please know these ceremonies will not be the same as they have been in the past.

All Bibb County School District schools have been closed since March 16 to limit the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The District will communicate with local and state health officials, as well as the Georgia Department of Education and Gov. Kemp’s office, to make a determination about when it is safe to reopen schools. In the interim, students and teachers will be expected to participate in eLearning. 

When schools reopen, custodial and maintenance staff in all school buildings will continue to use a hospital-grade disinfectant and take extended measures in sanitizing high-touch areas in addition to daily, routine cleaning and sanitizing measures already in place. Additionally, schools will continue to ensure soap is provided in all bathrooms.

There are several things that can be done right now to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Wash hands often with soap and hot water; wash hands for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Avoid contact with people who are ill.
  • If you have cold-like symptoms: Stay home while you are sick; avoid close contact with other people; cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing; wash hands regularly; and disinfect surfaces and objects.
  • Avoid travel to active COVID-19 areas. It is recommended to practice enhanced precautions if you are traveling to active COVID-19 areas, especially for older adults, infants and those with compromised immune systems.

The coronavirus is spread in ways similar to other viruses like the flu, including coughing; sneezing; close personal contact (shaking hands, touching, etc.); and touching contaminated surfaces and then your eyes, nose or mouth. Symptoms of the coronavirus are similar to a variety of illnesses (fever, cough, shortness of breath) and may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus.
