Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools to Remain Closed Through the End of the 2019-20 School Year

Published on: 4/1/2020

​​On Wednesday, April 1, 2020, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp issued an Executive Order calling for Public Schools in the state to remain closed for in-person instruction through the end of this school year.  As a result, SCCPSS schools will now remain closed and students will continue Independent Learning through the scheduled end of the school year on May 15, 2020.


More information regarding the continuation of Independent Learning will be communicated in the coming days.  While all school buildings remain closed, the District’s Central Office and other administrative facilities are open to the public by appointment only for essential business.  Additional information will be provided to our families through the usual parent notification calls and emails, district social media accounts,, and local media. 

Earlier this month, Governor Brian Kemp placed Georgia under a State of Emergency due to the spread of Coronavirus. The school District continues to maintain regular contact with the Georgia Department of Public Health, Chatham County Health Department, and the Chatham Emergency Management Agency, to monitor Coronavirus impacts in our area. 


Once again, all Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools will remain closed through the end of this school year by order of the Governor.  Please make sure to check our website –, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for further updates.


Please read this Letter from the Superintendent​ regarding the school closure.
