LAFAYETTE – Beginning Tuesday, December 15, through Friday, December 18, 2020, parents and students in the Chambers County School District will be given the option of attending school traditionally or online.

“Attendance is still required, but for the remainder of this week we are providing the option of attending school in person on campus or virtually from home,” said Chambers County School Superintendent Dr. Kelli Hodge. “The reason for this choice is not due to a large number of positive COVID-19 cases, but rather the number of students and employees currently under quarantine for possible exposure to the virus.”

For the benefit of students choosing online instruction, school buses equipped with wi-fi will be parked at specific locations to insure adequate internet access. A complete list of locations will be posted on the school district’s social media sites.

“This option only applies to this week,” said Hodge. “Semester/nine weeks exams will take place after students return from the holiday recess in January.”
