Director of Coffee County Schools Dr. Charles Lawson 

Coffee County Schools is announcing the closure of North Coffee Elementary for the remainder of this week, Aug. 5-7. 

The same decision process that led to the closure of Coffee County Middle School resulted in this closure as the district attempts to fulfill the job of educating our students while maintaining their safety, said director of Coffee County Schools Charles Lawson. 

said Charles Lawson, director of Coffee County Schools.

This decision to close CCMS was reached through an abundance of caution over COVID-19, said Lawson. 

"The staff of North Coffee, just like the staff at Coffee County Middle School, will be working to prepare for the distribution of materials.  Parents should receive additional information on Wednesday, August 5.  More information will be available by Friday, August 7, at both schools.  These decisions are made as new information becomes available on an hourly basis.  All Coffee County Schools other than Coffee County Middle School and North Coffee Elementary should be in session on Aug. 5 on regular hours," he said.
