Yesterday, roughly 60% of Cobb Schools’ elementary students returned to face-to-face learning after a nearly seven-month shutdown. The 67 elementary school buildings around the District were buzzing with activity as teachers, students, and parents participated in the exciting day.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and relying on public health guidance, schools across Cobb have been serving students remotely since August 18.
In September, the CCSD offered parents who had their children enrolled in Cobb County schools to submit their choice of face-to-face or continued remote learning.
