Today being Franklin County’s first day back in school, it’s the conclusion for the Elbert County School System’s first full week back in session.
Elbert County School Superintendent Chuck Bell said it didn’t take long for both teachers and students to get back into the swing of things on the first day of school.
“It was so smooth that by 8:30am, our schools were functioning as if they had been in session for months”, said Bell. “Teaching and learning was taking place, and the safe orderly environment you look for was alive and well.”
Bell said he was really impressed with the work of the teachers and school administrators, but he also said he was grateful to all those involved with the school system.
“All the different operational services in our system such as transportation, food and nutrition, custodial services; everything was well organized”, said Bell. “I’d like to thank our city and county law enforcement groups with their handling of the traffic, which was crucial in the first couple of days.”
Expected to be concluded before the end of the month is the completion of the new roof at the Elbert County Comprehensive High School, that is, assuming the weather cooperates.
Bell said that once work is complete then everything will be completely back to normal.
