Fulton County Schools elementary school temporarily switches to remote learning due to COVID-19

Beginning tomorrow, some students at a Fulton County elementary school will temporarily learn remotely due to positive COVID-19 cases.

Third-grade students at Summit Hill Elementary School will transition to virtual learning beginning September 7 through September 13th.

 Students are expected to return for in-person learning on September 14th, school officials said.

The decision was made "based on a high volume of positive cases and direct contacts and having met the criteria of a Level 2," according to a statement for Fulton County Schools.


The school system said it will contact anyone who will be required to quarantine for longer.

On August 30, Fulton County Schools announced Ocee Elementary School in Johns Creek would send its first-grade class home at least through Sept. 3 due to a high volume of positive cases and direct contacts.

The school district's policy calls for learning models to switch to remote, if necessary, after more than 3 students or staff at the same site test positive for COVID-19.
