Columbus, GA – The District has prepared plans for students to retrieve items from their assigned locations and return District property issued during the 2019-2020 school year. High schools will observe the distribution and collection plan May 13-22, 2020; elementary and middle schools will observe the plan May 18-22, 2020. All items will be collected and distributed through designated time frames, without contact, in accordance with CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of illness.

All individuals must present proper forms of identification upon arrival, practice social distancing with at least six feet of distance between all individuals, wear CDC-approved face coverings/masks, and proceed according to each school’s plan. Individuals with signs or symptoms of illness should not report to any sites; alternate arrangements should be coordinated with the school in that instance.
