• 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

LLS

Hollis Hand Elementary raised $5,200 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) through their Pennies for Patients campaign. 


LLS is a nonprofit organization fighting blood cancer. Their mission is to cure blood cancers and improve the lives of patients and their families. LLS recently launched a new Children’s Initiative which seeks to accelerate treatments with fewer harmful side effects so that young patients with cancer not only survive, but thrive for generations to come. 


By donating toward this worthy cause, students learned valuable pro-social skills like kindness, sharing, and empathy. Five homeroom classrooms earned a pizza party for bringing in the most donations. Last year, Hollis Hand also raised over $5,000 for LLS. Pictured with Mrs. Natalie Doerr, the school counselor, are students Cameriyan Hutchinson, Mae Lemmo and Leighton Shelnutt.
