PICKENS COUNTY, GA – Pickens County Schools released the following statement to all students’ families earlier today.
“Out of an abundance of caution and based on guidance from the Department of Public Health (DPH), Pickens County School District will delay the start of school for both traditional school students and Pickens Virtual Academy students due to recent COVID-19 exposures at Hill City Elementary and a spike in community spread.
School will begin on August 17, 2020, and more details will follow over the next week or so. All Open House activities, extra-curricular activities, and device distributions are postponed.
This updated information will be posted on our district website, Facebook page, and through Infinite Campus.
The health and safety of our students and staff is our number one priority.”
