Atlanta Public Schools to Remain Closed Through April 24

(ATLANTA) Atlanta Public Schools (APS) and all K-12 public schools in Georgia will remain closed at least through Friday, April 24, according to an executive order issued today by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp. The extended school closure is an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).


APS invites its students, parents and staff to participate in a live virtual town hall on Facebook Live, today at 4 p.m., where District leaders will answer questions on APS’ response to the COVID-19 closure thus far, teleworking, teleschooling and more. The virtual town hall will feature a live question and answer session with viewers tuned into the event at www.facebook.com/AtlantaPublicSchools.


The District continues to provide weekly updates on its responses to COVID-19 at www.atlantapublicschools.us/coronavirus.
