Classes canceled Nov. 20 for Ware County students due to cleaning of school campuses, buses

Friday, Nov. 20, will be a Staff Work Day

Ware County Schools

School will not be in session Friday, Nov. 20, for Ware County students, the school district announced Monday.

That’s because the school district said it will be observing a Staff Work Day that day.

According to the district, the purpose of the Staff Work Day is to conduct a deep cleaning throughout school campuses and buses prior to the Thanksgiving break.  

And due to staffing shortages caused by COVID-19, Ware County’s middle schools -- Ware County Middle School and Waycross Middle School -- will be closed to in-person learning for the next two weeks but will continue digital instruction.

All middle school athletic and extra-curricular activities will be canceled during the closure.

Middle school students will return to classrooms on Nov. 30.
