TFS Reopening

Dear Tallulah Falls School Parents, Guardians and Students,

As you can imagine, planning for the new academic year has been a difficult task given the ever-evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even with the challenges we have faced, I want to assure you that we remain committed to providing a high-quality college-preparatory education for all TFS students. And, we will face this challenge as a united learning community. At the onset of the pandemic, I established a Risk Management Committee consisting of key campus leaders with Assistant Head of School, David Chester as Chairman. Their planning continues to reflect our highest priorities:

  • Ensuring the health and safety of all TFS students, faculty and staff
  • Maintaining the TFS mission of preparing students for life by elevating character and intellect
  • Ensuring TFS continues to make financially responsible decisions

The plan outlines issues we are facing during this challenging time such as life on campus, transportation plans, athletic events, use of face coverings, etc. This plan also provides an option for students who are in a high-risk category which would require an alternative learning approach (Blended Learning). 

We continue to be guided by our mission and plan on a successful school year with an in-class experience for all students beginning August 24. However, one of the lessons we have learned over the course of the past few months is the importance of flexibility. As information concerning COVID-19 continues to become available, we will update our plan accordingly. This may include changes to our school calendar based on recommendations from the CDC, the Governor and State of Georgia health officials. We will keep you posted.

Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.
