Dear Eagle Families,

This message is to provide guidance of Cirrus Academy for Fall Re-entry for the 21- 22 school
year. Cirrus Academy Charter School has been continuously monitoring the direction of the Georgia
Department of Education and the CDC to provide guidance for reopening.

COVID-19 and related variants continue to be a significant public health concern, and CACS remains
vigilant as we prepare for a safe return to our schools for staff and students. Regarding newly issued
recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the district’s COVID
Executive Task Force has reviewed the guidance on the use of masks and has reaffirmed our current
position, with one revision.

Cirrus Academy will reopen under the face-to-face model on Monday, August 2,2021. All CACS
staff and scholars will be required to wear facemasks in all facilities, even for those that are
vaccinated. In making our decision of transition, please know that we are continually observing
public health data/ trends, learning from other schools and districts, and remaining ever mindful of
the social and emotional well-being of our students, families, and staff members. We are also
gathering invaluable input from our governing board, staff, and families.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding in this decision-making process. Please
continue to monitor our website and social media platforms for any important updates.

We are excited to welcome our scholars and staff back to in-person learning. Have a wonderful, safe
school year.

We are Full STEAM Ahead!
Best Regards,
Gail Morris Fowler, Ed. D.
CEO/ Superintendent
