Employee Absences

To encourage and support staff members to stay home when sick, Atlanta Public Schools has communicated information regarding the expanded paid sick leave benefits available under the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act, as well as other sick leave benefits that are available. Employees can access this information on the employee-only Staff Hub site.

Do not come to school if you are sick. Any staff member, student, or parent/caregiver who develops symptoms of COVID-19 at home should NOT come into the school. Staff members who test positive will quarantine under the guidelines set forth by the district.
