• Alert:

    Quick reminder: Students who attend in-person learning will receive a breakfast and lunch meal before they leave school on Friday afternoon. The meals are for Monday’s virtual learning day so there is less food deficiency throughout the county.

    In addition, TCSS buses will be rolling into communities Monday to distribute meals for kids 18 and younger. There will be enough meals for five days. Those receiving meals do not have to be TCSS students. Meals are available to each young person in the community. The bus route delivery sites are available here.

09/18/20: TCSS Board Approves Two Virtual Days for All Students virtual learning

Two upcoming Mondays have now been deemed virtual learning days according to a vote last night during the Troup County School System (TCSS) Board of Education September meeting. 

The two days are:

  • Monday, September 28, 2020
  • Monday, November 2, 2020


Members of the Board voted to approve two virtual days for all students after the recommendation from Dr. Brian Shumate, TCSS Superintendent, came Monday night. He said, “We have heard from educators who simultaneously teach students in-person and virtually. These two days will allow them an opportunity to catch up on student assignments and lesson planning while also learning more about Canvas to better help students and parents.”

09/17/20: TCSS Offers Free Meals for Kids - Drop Off Locations bus routes

Thanks to an extension from the Seamless Summer Option program, all Troup County youth ages 18 and under can now receive free breakfast and lunch meals. This means that any parent who is currently paying for their child’s lunch can now save those lunch funds or apply them to a household need. The extension started today in Troup County and will continue until December 31, 2020 unless additional funds are made available to extend the program further.

Diane Pain, Director of School Nutrition for Troup County School System (TCSS), said, “Parents will receive five days of breakfast and lunch meals at no cost. Students who go through the lunch line at school will not have to pay because all youth are now covered under this program extension.”
