    Safety Alert - April 1, 2020: Schools closed for remainder of school year

    April 1, 2020 Update: Schools are closed for the remainder of school year. 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.


    Governor Brian Kemp and members of the state's Novel Coronavirus team hosted a press conference at the Capitol today. Governor Kemp stated that he plans to sign two orders. The first will require all residents to shelter in place from Friday. April 3 - April 13. He also will sign an order closing all public schools through the end of the year.


    We know this will generate many questions. Please know that our leadership has been working hard since March 15, to plan for many different scenarios. We continue to ask for your patience and understanding as we communicate plans and answers to your questions. Remain calm and adhere to public health guidelines so that we can all do our part to remain safe and healthy.

    • Answers to your frequently asked questions about district and school operations during the closure and how to post your additional questions.
    • Trusted national, state, and local public health resources and tips to help keep you healthy

    Safety Alert - Free meals for any children ages 0-18 during school closures (Updated 3/29)

    Updated March 29, 2020 - Additional sites; Some times slightly different


    Bulloch County Schools will deliver bags of free meals to 49 locations on weekdays (Monday – Friday) March 17 - April 24. The program will provide free grab and go breakfast and lunch meals to any child ages 0 to 18. No registration, sign-in, or identification is required, and the children do not have to be enrolled in one of our schools. It is not based on income. Any child is welcome, even children who may be staying here temporarily with family. Children must be present to receive meals. Look for a Bulloch County Schools’ bus at each delivery location to receive meals. 


    In the interest of public health and social distancing recommendations, the meals are for pick up only. No meals can be eaten at the sites. Families should also observe social distancing practices while waiting and receiving meals.


    The meal delivery sites were selected based on input from the district’s school social workers, family engagement specialists, school nutrition personnel, and transportation personnel to serve areas with the most need.  Each meal sack will include food for breakfast and lunch. The funding for the program is made possible through the school district’s School Nutrition Department as part of the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs.


    USDA guidelines prevent the school district from being able to provide evening meals or meals on weekends. There are multiple community organizations, including Bulloch Volunteer Organizations Mobilized in Disasters (VOAD) who are organizing efforts locally to further meet any food insecurity needs.


    Bulloch County Schools and its School Nutrition Program do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, age or gender.  For additional information about this remote feeding program, contact Bulloch County Schools.


    An asterisk (*) denotes that the site's time was updated on March 29. Some times have been adjusted to accommodate additional sites or to shift deliveries to high-volume areas.

    Leader in Me

    Leader in MeMattie Lively Elementary School is a Leader in Me school. Leader in Me has been implemented effectively and successfully at schools around the world to address the social and emotional learning needs of the whole child. Through the program we teach children to identify and celebrate the leader within themselves through direct teaching, practice, and application of the seven habits. The paradigms of The Leader in Me teach students and teachers lifelong leadership skills they will carry outside the walls of the school to help ensure success in future careers and to build positive relationships with others.

    • Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge)
    • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
    • Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
    • Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
    • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood(Listen Before You Talk)
    • Habit 6: Synergize (Together Is Better)
    • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)

    Art-tivity from Ms. Brannon

    Art by Ms. BrannonDid you know you can make art anywhere? And with anything? Here is a fun art activity you can do at home with just paper and any pencils, crayons or color pencils you may have lying around. 

    This project is all about TEXTURE - the way something feels!

    Use the images provided to guide you through setting up your paper. 

    Try this challenge outside, inside or both! Look and feel for things that are rough, bumpy, lumpy or gritty.

    Was it easier for you to find textures inside or outside? 

    Where did you find the most textures? 

    Do smooth or rough textures show up best?

    Can you guess where I found some of the textures that my daughter and I used? 

    Which texture pattern is your favorite?
