• School Closings/Delays:

    Dear Troup County School System Community, 

    Governor Brian Kemp just issued an Executive Order mandating all schools in Georgia will remain closed for in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year. This includes TCSS.
     

    Please note that current grade calculations will be based upon student mastery of material covered through March 12, 2020 which was the end of the third nine weeks grading period. Student learning will continue after our scheduled Spring Break. We don’t want our kids to lose the valuable knowledge and skills they have gained this school year. Teachers will be contacting their students and working with them to ensure additional opportunities are available for students to demonstrate mastery of previously covered material. More details will be available the week of April 13th.
     

    At this time, we do not have any further updates. We know there are academic milestones and other events that our students and families were looking forward to this year. As updates are available, we will share them. 
     

    Over the past several weeks, our commitment to the students and the families of TCSS has been paramount. We will continue this commitment through the closure. Together, we will all get through this.


    Thank you,
    TCSS

Berta Weathersbee Elementary (BWES) students brought their curiosity and questions to the farm as they spent a day of learning around math and science.
 

 

There was a space and science center planetarium in the gym, lizards and monkeys from Wild Animal Safari on the second floor of the school, weird science experiments by a scientist in a white coat in the auditorium, and a petting zoo behind the school close to the Kona Ice truck.
 

 

Students were fascinated as they touched llamas, lambs, and goats from Sims Pond Farm. They learned the lamb was only two weeks old so they had to be careful with their touch. Before the planetarium presentation, students were able to crawl through a small tube as they walked into a darkened globe reminiscent of a midnight sky. Employees from the Coca Cola Space Science center gave a 10 minute presentation on the planets and stars.
