FLOYD COUNTY SCHOOLS
Interim Floyd County School Superintendent Dr. Glenn White has made a recommendation to close Cave Spring Elementary School and Glenwood Primary School in the summer of 2022.
The recommendation to the Floyd County Board of Education is being made due to enrollment and financial considerations for the school system as a whole.
For the 2022-2023 school year, Armuchee Elementary School will absorb all Glenwood students while Cave Spring students would be redistricted into existing facilities within the school district.
All faculty and staff members will continue to have a position within the school district regardless of school closures.
Meanwhile, for the 2021-2022 school year, the interim superintendent recommended all fifth-grade classes move to their attendance area middle schools, and Pepperell Primary School second grade will move to Pepperell Elementary School.
All Floyd County middle schools will house fifth, sixth, and seventh grades.
Pepperell Elementary will house second, third, and fourth grades.
Pepperell Primary will remain PreK, kindergarten, and first grade.
All Floyd County high schools will remain grades eight through 12.
Pepperell Middle School will move to its new facility during the summer of 2021.
The former McHenry Primary School building will officially close after the move is complete.
