  • School Closings/Delays:

    April 1, 2020 - Governor Brian Kemp has just signed an Executive Order closing all school districts for the remainder of the school year.  This is an unprecedented decision that I know was not taken lightly.  At this point, there are more questions than answers.  The Emanuel County School district will work over the next several weeks to provide answers to these questions.  We ask that our community continue to follow all recommendations regarding hand washing, social distancing and staying home when possible.  We pray everyone stays safe and healthy!
