    Update! March 12th 

    March 12th, 2013
    While there are no confirmed cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Atlanta Public Schools, based on the recommendation and guidance provided by Governor Brian Kemp on Thursday, March 12, APS will close all schools and offices effective Monday, March 16. However, in order to prepare for an extended leave, students and staff are asked to come to school tomorrow, March 13, so we can supply students with the necessary learning materials. If you are sick, please remember to follow our past guidance and stay home. We anticipate that, at a minimum, District schools and offices will remain closed for at least two weeks and potentially extend beyond Spring Break (April 6 - 10).
    During this closure, APS students will continue learning through myBackpack or other virtual learning platforms. Students who do not have access to the internet or devices, or students who attend regional programs for special education will be provided other instructional materials tomorrow, March 13.
    APS remains in close communication with the local and state governments to make informed future operational decisions. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we will follow the guidance from the Department of Public Health (DPH), Georgia Department of Education (GADOE) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to implement health recommendations and share updated information with APS families as it becomes available.
    For more information about the District’s response to COVID- 19 visit https://www.atlantapublicschools.us/coronavirus.
