All Bibb County School District schools have been closed since Monday, March 16, due to COVID-19 and students are participating in eLearning in the interim. During the closure, all buildings are undergoing a deep cleaning that will include multiple steps as part of the disinfection process.

The Bibb County School District will continue to post updates on its website and will communicate additional information with families and employees as it becomes available. Meanwhile, the Bibb County School District asks that all stakeholders – students, employees, parents and community members – follow COVID-19 guidance as emphasized by local, state and national health care providers.

Those who believe they may be experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should contact a primary care doctor, an urgent care clinic or a local federally qualified healthcare center. Please do not show up unannounced at an emergency room or health care facility. Additionally, the Georgia Department of Public Health has developed a hotline to answer questions related to COVID-19. That number is (844) 442-2681.
