The district’s latest data shows 30 cases recorded during the week ending Dec. 10. Of those, 23 were students, seven were staff.
The district closed about 20 schools earlier this year as the more contagious delta variant of COVID-19 surged throughout metro Atlanta and the nation. But over the past few months, infection numbers have been lower and the district has not had to shutter buildings.
The school system said that breakfasts and lunches will be available for students on Thursday and Friday, but that they will have to be picked up by parents or guardians. Parents should call the schools to learn where to get the meals.
“The school district will continue to make decisions based on the best interest of all students and employees while monitoring ongoing data and information relative to the pandemic,” the school system said in a news release. ”The data shared by district and school-based leaders as well as key health officials assist in determining actions concerning this situation as well as others that may develop.”
