Elbert County Primary School
Big journeys begin with little hops!
We have exciting news! Elbert County Primary School is now a 1to1 school with chromebook technology! Our technology department and school district leaders have been working diligently to ensure this happens.
What does this mean for you as parents/guardians?
In the event that your student's classroom is quarentined at home, or the student is quarentined, or the district changes to Virtual Learning, they will be allowed to utilize this technology at home in order to access the daily curriculum from school.
Every student in the Elbert County School District has access to his/her Google Suite. Inside this suite is Google Classroom, in which the students use for distance learning while away from the physical building during the school year. These virtual classrooms are designed and maintained by each homeroom teacher of ECPS.

Elbert County Family,
The Elbert County community is experiencing increasing numbers of positive COVID cases. The number of students/employees quarantined from direct contact and from symptoms or positive tests has greatly affected the daily operations of our schools and transportation. Given the increasing rate of positive cases and a bus fuel disruption resulting from Hurricane Ida, all schools will have virtual instruction for Thursday, September 2, and Friday, September 3. School will return to normal face-to-face operations on Tuesday, September 7, 2021.
Please know that I do understand the impact school closing for face-to-face instruction has on our community. We have been successful in providing face-to-face instruction since August 4th, and our plan is to return on September 7th and finish the first semester strong with face-to-face instruction. This decision was carefully considered and made in consultation with principals, district leaders, and area healthcare professionals.
All teachers and staff will report to work daily to provide instruction virtually and provide assistance to students and parents. Our individual schools and teachers will be providing additional information for their students and parents concerning virtual learning schedules and supports. Extracurricular activities will continue as planned.
Breakfast and lunch will be available for pick up at each school between 11:00 and 11:30 am both days. Families can pick up for all of their children at any Elbert County school. Students do not need to be present to pick up meals.
Sincerely,Jon JarvisECSD Superintendent
