Safety Statement

Today we received what we believed to be a non-credible bomb threat at our High School through social media. The administrators, for the protection of the students, evacuated the area mentioned in the threat. Students were not allowed to return to this area after school. Several after-school activities were cancelled. JV Basketball still remained scheduled. Law enforcement representatives initiated a sweep of the building with a bomb-sniffing canine and found no evidence of any threat or suspicious device.  Please check back for more information as it becomes available.

Transportation Changes

Middle/High School parents and students.  Here in Social Circle, we value and appreciate stakeholder input and therefore we have revised our morning drop-off and dismissal plan based upon your feedback.   

With safety and efficiency in mind, we are happy to announce that beginning on Monday, August 29th, all car riders will be dropped off and picked up behind the school before and after school.  The gates on Memorial Street will open at 7 am and close at 8:15 am.  These gates will reopen at 2:15 and will be closed at 3:30 pm.  In order to ease traffic flow on Memorial Street, cars will not be able to enter or exit the Central Office parking lot between 2:15 and 3:30.   Bus riders will arrive and dismiss from the front of the school.  We appreciate your patience, kindness, and continued support.

Extended School Days

Inclement Weather Make-Up Time

In order to regain some of the lost instructional time due to the winter weather the Social Circle Board of Education has decided to make the following temporary schedule change: Extend the instructional day by 20 minutes (10 before/10 after) for students and staff for Feb. 24 - March 28 to equal 500 additional instructional minutes (2+ days for students and staff) Continue with 20 minute extended day for staff only on April 7- 18 to equal 200 additional minutes (1 additional day for staff). 

This means that school start times will begin 10 minutes early and release times will be 10 minutes later from February 24th through March 28th

Our buses will follow this new schedule beginning Monday, February 24th

Thank you for working with our schools as we work to gain important instructional time before our high stakes testing in April.
