Our biggest challenge during COVID-19 will be bus transportation. It will not be feasible to expect six foot social distancing in this environment. Therefore, students will be expected to wear a mask on the bus. We will do everything we can to provide a healthy environment for our students.

What will happen when a student or staff member tests positive or has a high fever? We will follow the guidelines from the Decision-Making Tree from the CDC and DPH. We are thankful for the two additional nurses on staff this year. Each school will have a full-time nurse.

Students will have two school options: 1) Traditional School (Five days a week) or 2) Virtual Learning . (Schools PLP for elementary students and APEX for secondary students)

The plan for Reopening Dade County Schools was presented on July 8, 2020.

Dade County Schools will resume normal operations on August 13 th while adhering to the recommendations made by the Georgia Department of Education and the Georgia Department of Public Health in their jointly-released Georgia’s Path to Recovery for K-12 Schools where practical.

Dade County is implementing health and safety protocols as recommended by the CDC.


Georgia Department of Public Health Decision Making Tree will be utilized in conjunction with the Health Department when individuals have fever (100.4 degrees or higher) or test positive for COVID-19.
The American Academy of Pediatrics strongly advocates that "all policy considerations for the coming school year should start with a goal of having students physically present in school.”
