WHEN: Tuesday, January 7, 2020

WHERE: District site/location

WHAT: The Muscogee County School District in partnership with local law enforcement and public safety agencies will conduct a planned safety exercise at a District site. This exercise is meant for preparation in response to any emergency situation that could require the evacuation of students and staff.

During those types of crisis situations, school districts enact a process to reunify students with their parents/legal guardians at an alternate location. This process of controlled release is called reunification. The exercise will involve a large public safety presence. The public should not be alarmed; this is a planned drill.


*REMINDER: District offices are closed in observance of Winter Break, Monday, December 23, 2019- Friday, January 3, 2020. Offices will re-open January 6, 2020. Students will return January 8, 2020.

The mission of the Muscogee County School District is to inspire and equip all students to achieve unlimited potential. For more information, please contact the Office of Communications at 706.748.2034 or communications@muscogee.k12.ga.us.
