Message from the Community Superintendent

The beginning of School Year 2020-2021 has been unrivaled by any other. As a result of this pandemic, all of us have had to transform our way of thinking and our way of interacting. Through these times, we (students, faculty, staff and parents) have become resilient and responsive to our mitigation strategies. All installations in the Georgia/Alabama community have schools providing in-person learning. As I have visited every school in the community, I am very proud of the faculty and staff for their preparation and implementation of the COVID mitigation strategies. Additionally, the 100% return of consent forms by our parents, the combined support of our military senior leaders, and the diligent service of our grounds maintenance, transportation, budget and student meal program colleagues.
