Although Fulton County Schools on March 12 announcedan indefinite closure to help stop the spread of coronavirus. FCS Board of Education officials followed up the next day announcing a new remote learning plan effective March 16 until March 20 and will continue the following week if needed, according to a press release. This plan encompasses both short- and long-term closures with both online learning elements and a component for those without internet access, according to the release.

Students will be using ClassLink to access instruction materials and complete work while FCS is closed. Students can sign on using their FCS username and password to access class materials and the site can be found here.


Those enrolled in Fulton Virtual School will proceed with regular online operations, the release said.

Additionally, pre-K through second grade students, special education students and students with intermittent or no internet access can pick up printed packets from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on March 16, 18 and 20 at the following schools:

  • Lake Forest and Mimosa elementary schools

  • Haynes Bridge Middle School

  • Tri-Cities, Banneker and Langston Hughes high schools


FCS families in need of nutritional support can drive through or pick up meals at those six schools as well from 11 a.m-1 p.m. on March 16, 18 and 20.

"We ask our families to be mindful that closing schools and intiating remote learning options have been implemented to limit social contact in hopes of curtailing the spread of COVID-19," the release stated. "We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we all work through this situation together."
