[Spanish] A detailed update was provided for the Barrow County School System End of Year plans on April 17. If you have not had a chance to read that information yet, find the end of year update here. Below are two additional updates we’d like to share with you. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your child’s school. Thank you.
Pre-K Lottery Update
The BCSS Pre-K Lottery will accept applications online from Monday, April 27 until Friday, May 8. We have transitioned the application process online so families can complete the application and submit the required documentation from home. The Pre-K lottery drawing will be held on May 15. Families will be able to watch the lottery drawing videos online. Our Pre-K Lottery web page has complete details.
Retrieving or Returning Items at Schools
To limit physical interactions at this time, BCSS is not allowing campus visits until after June 1 at the earliest for students to pick up yearbooks, personal items remaining at school, or other items. High schools are developing plans to get senior caps, gowns and other regalia to seniors in a safe manner. Each high school will share additional information when possible.
In addition, we do not currently plan to collect any items, such as media center materials, Chromebooks, textbooks, etc. at our schools until after June 1 as well. Once we determine it is safe to organize campus visits, schools will be in touch with their families regarding their specific plans.
