To ensure the safety of our students and staff, the Elbert County School District has an operational plan that is executed when there is consideration of a school closing or delay due to inclement weather. The superintendent and administrative staff carefully monitor weather forecasts, test road conditions, and check school building conditions. The superintendent is responsible for making the final decision, based on the above factors and recommendations from the district staff.
Elbert County school closings will be announced on local broadcast media outlets, the school district website (www.elbert.k12.ga.us), and on the district's automated notification system. Additionally, closings are posted via the official social media accounts of our schools and district office, including https://twitter.com/ElbertCoSchools. If there is no closing message on the school district's website or official social media accounts, then school is open.
We understand our school community’s desire for timely information, and we will always do our very best to balance this desire with the need for coordinated community-wide emergency planning in these situations. Thanks so much for your support!
