MOULTRIE, Ga. — The Open House schedule for Colquitt County Schools for the 2019-2020 School Year has been set.
Superintendent Doug Howell remarked, “The purpose of the Open House event is to offer parents and students the opportunity to visit schools before the start of the school year in order to meet and greet teachers, to become more familiar with the school building, to pick-up and learn about class schedules, and to gain insight as to what will be the expectations for success. Open House has been a lasting and successful tradition in the Colquitt County School System for many years. I am sure this year will be no different.”
Students will return to school on Monday, Aug. 5, with Open House for all schools taking place on Thursday, Aug. 1, with the exception of the Colquitt County Achievement Center.
