UPDATED on 1.25.2022
Governor Kemp and Health Commissioner Dr. Toomey notified school districts earlier this month that protocols for contact tracing would be modified as an optional practice for school districts.

Lumpkin County Schools will continue contact tracing for students in medically-fragile resource classrooms, but will no longer continue contact tracing for the general school population.

POSTED on 1.04.2022
With the new year arriving and our students returning to school on Wednesday, January 5, 2022, COVID-19 continues to be a challenge for many communities and for our state as a whole. Here in Lumpkin County, we will continue to partner with and consult Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) to best mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our school-aged children while continuing to offer in-person face-to-face instruction for all students Pre-K through 12th grade.

Because COVID-19 is an ever-changing pandemic, we cannot predict the future. However, we will continue to communicate changes as they occur, and we encourage our parents to stay up-to-date on our protocols, procedures, and practices in regards to COVID-19 by visiting this page and using the available resources on the menu to the left.

For questions specific to your child and his/her education in Lumpkin County Schools in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, your first point-of-contact should be your child's school nurse.
