• School Closings/Delays:

    Dear Troup County School System Community, 

    Governor Brian Kemp issued an Executive Order closing all schools through Friday, April 24th.  This is a two-week extension of our previously announced return date.  Therefore, our plan now will be to return to school on Monday, April 27th.

     

    As part of our support to students and families during this extended cancellation, TCSS will continue providing meal distribution services at the designated school locations and various bus stops throughout the county. Meal distribution services will occur as scheduled through April 3rd. The sites and locations can be found on troup.org.  We will send out more information regarding food services for the extended closure in the coming days.  

     

    Teachers continue providing student online learning resources. They are working remotely, and are available via email, to best support students and provide continuous learning opportunities. Please access the online resources at troup.org.  Many teachers are also utilizing their Google Classrooms to share learning resources as well.  We will provide more information regarding additional resources as it becomes available.  Please visit our Facebook page for daily tips and updates.

     

    We appreciate the support of the parents, all of our staff, and the entire community during this very unprecedented time. We will continue to keep you updated as information unfolds.

Berta Weathersbee Elementary (BWES) students brought their curiosity and questions to the farm as they spent a day of learning around math and science.
 

 

There was a space and science center planetarium in the gym, lizards and monkeys from Wild Animal Safari on the second floor of the school, weird science experiments by a scientist in a white coat in the auditorium, and a petting zoo behind the school close to the Kona Ice truck.
 

 

Students were fascinated as they touched llamas, lambs, and goats from Sims Pond Farm. They learned the lamb was only two weeks old so they had to be careful with their touch. Before the planetarium presentation, students were able to crawl through a small tube as they walked into a darkened globe reminiscent of a midnight sky. Employees from the Coca Cola Space Science center gave a 10 minute presentation on the planets and stars.
