Updated 3/4/20 – 9:00 pm: Bulloch County Schools will be open on Friday, March 5th.
Due to the excessive rainfall the school system has suspended school bus services to certain dirt roads for Friday.
Please note that additional dirt roads have been added.
Bulloch County Schools serves 11,000 students. The suspension of bus services affects approximately 150 children of the more than 5,500 students we transport each day.
Please continue to monitor Bulloch County EMA and school district communications for updates.
We understand that the heavy rains have affected some families more than others. School attendance is always a parent’s right and decision. When parents make the decision for their child to be absent from school for any reason, then when the child returns to school, the parent submits a written excuse as to the cause of the absence. Absences which the state of Georgia considers to be excused are listed in the Attendance Expectations area of the Bulloch County Schools Student Handbook . One of the reasons listed is “conditions rendering school attendance hazardous to student health or safety,” so this would refer to students in areas most affected by the heavy rain. Our school officials will always review parent notes and work with them to excuse legitimate absences.
