• 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,

Close alert

LCMS Science
When you are at school you may see an event or classroom lesson that you want to share with the community. A picture is a great way to help you tell the story to people who are not in attendance at the event or in the classroom. Below are some tips to help you tell a good story through photos.  PLEASE SUBMIT all photos and photo stories to stephenyk@troup.org. We like to use them on the district's Facebook page and troup.org. If you have any questions, contact the Public Relations Department.

Seven Quick Photo Tips:

  • Media releases: Ensure all subjects have a media release on file. If they do not, take photo with those who are authorized.
  • Who can you see: Ensure you can see all subjects in the photo. If multiple cameras are in use (i.e. at an awards or sporting event), ask subjects to look at you and hold up your hand so they know where to look. 
  • Focused or blurry: Ensure the photo is focused and not blurry. It's okay to take the photo again if it is blurry, even if you are short on time. It is best practice to have a good, focused photo. If not, it may not be useable on social sites or the website.
  • Lighting is key: If you are in an area where lighting is undesirable, quickly move the photo opportunity to another area. 
  • Color is better: Don't stand in front of a white wall. It is good practice to have something that signifies the school or venue. Stand in front of books school logo. 
  • Clothing appropriate: Many of our students wear shirts with sayings...ensure the wording is appropriate.
  • Quality over quantity: It is better to have two great photos than 10 unusable ones.
