Rome City Schools Superintendent, Louis Byars, has determined that all RCS schools will be closed for the day, on Friday, September 3. Byars’ authorization is offered to allow those who work within the RCS system the time to schedule and acquire the COVID-19 vaccination, should they desire to do so.
Byars’ authorization coincides with Governor Brian Kemp’s directive that state offices take administrative leave on September 3. Kemp’s action was taken to encourage Georgians to receive the COVID-19 vaccination and offered as a “thank you” to those who have already been vaccinated.
The release attached includes info regarding the vaccination event hosted by Floyd taking place on Friday, September 3 from 8-3 pm at the CCA, as well as the vaccination opportunities to be held at the football game that night
