April 1, 2020 Update: Schools are closed for the remainder of school year, which for Bulloch County Schools is May 22. These missed days will not be made up.  At this time due to the uncertainty of further shelter-in-place orders, we are unable to determine if we will be able to host our traditional summer school for high school students at our schools.  For now, we also do not know if the 2020-2021 school year will be affected.  For now the new school year will begin on August 3 as scheduled. Monitor our telephone, email, social media, news media and/or our dedicated COVID-19 website for further updates about how this affects our operations and answers to your specific questions. We ask for your continued patience.
