Camden County Schools to Complete School Year Remotely


April 1, 2020- Governor Kemp announced today that all Georgia schools will be closed for the remainder of the year. In accordance with Governor Kemp’s recent mandate and to best prioritize student and staff safety, Camden County School (CCS) buildings will remain closed and the remainder of the school year will be completed through remote learning. Our faculty and staff continue to work remotely to best support students, including delivering digital and physical instructional resources to students while they are at home. 
We recognize the hardship school closings may have on our families and community but we also know these are unprecedented times and extreme measures must be taken as a school system and as individuals to keep our community safe. Camden County Schools plans to continue student meal service throughout our school closures. Information about meal delivery and pick up locations can be found on the CCS website at www.camden.k12.ga.us.
We share the concern for our students who are missing milestone moments which have been canceled or postponed in response to COVID-19 Coronavirus. Please know that, while we do not know exactly what the next several weeks will bring, we do want to preserve and protect as many special events as possible.  


We will do everything possible to have a graduation ceremony. We remain in daily contact with our local Emergency Management Agency, the Georgia Department of Public Health, the Georgia Department of Education, and the administration of the Southeast Georgia Health System for guidance on how to proceed.  When we are given approval for normal operations to resume, we will develop a plan in conjunction with these agencies to host our commencement.

The CCS COVID-19 webpage can be found here.
