Mask Mandate Update
Superintendent Mike Looney shared that Fulton County Schools will be taking a measured, cautious approach to relax COVID-19 protocols, which includes updating COVID-19 restrictions and mask mandates in phases. There are several factors spurring these changes, including Governor Brian Kemp’s lifting of restrictions on group sizes and ending a ban on large gatherings. Also, vaccines are now readily available to those 16 years of age and older. In this new phase, employees and students who may have been exposed to COVID-19 but have been fully vaccinated will not have to quarantine, providing they are symptom free.
Beginning Monday, May 3, 2021:
· For outdoor activities only, masks will be recommended but not required for students in grades 9-12 and employees in high schools. All other safety protocols will remain in effect for this group of individuals.
· At school-sponsored outdoor events and activities, masks will be recommended but not required for visitors/spectators.
· Capacity limitations are lifted on all outside school venues (stadiums, fields, etc.).
· Coaches may attend banquets.
All other existing COVID-19 risk mitigation strategies will remain enforced for the balance of the 2020-21 school year. This includes requiring all staff, students, and visitors to wear a mask while inside an FCS facility, and adhere to recommended social distancing, surface sanitizing, and handwashing. More information on the new mask mandate can be found here.
Facility Master Plan
Every five years, Fulton County Schools creates a capital plan to address facility improvements as well as the technology, transportation, furniture and safety upgrades needed to support learning. As part of this work, the school system is creating its next Facility Master Plan.
MGT Consulting and Parsons, two education consulting firms with expertise in this area, were contracted to assess the physical condition and educational adequacy of every facility owned by the district. Their findings were shared at the March 9, 2021, School Board work session, which can be reviewed under "Resources."
Fulton County Schools invites the community to be involved and give their feedback.
