UPDATE Sunday March 15: Bibb County Schools will be closed tomorrow. No option for attendance Monday through Wednesday.

From Bibb BOE:

Good afternoon.

Due to the evolving circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and declaration of a state of emergency by President Trump and Governor Ivey, the decision has been made to close all Bibb County Schools effective immediately, beginning tomorrow, Monday, March 16.

Although it had been announced on Friday afternoon that schools would be open through Wednesday afternoon of this upcoming week, it is with an abundance of caution and respect for our most vulnerable friends and family members that we make this difficult decision. A longer statement with additional information will be posted to the district website and all school web pages within the hour, as well as shared via our school-sponsored social media accounts.

Thank you for your support of Bibb
County Schools.”

UPDATE Friday March 13: Per a voice message sent out from Bibb County School System, schools will be open Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (March 16-18), but attendance will not count against students who do not attend those days. Schools will be closed per State directive begging Thursday, March 19.

Amid concerns of what to do with our public school systems regarding COVID-19, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey declared a state of emergency today, and all K-12 schools will be closed starting March 18, for two weeks.

The Bibb Voice will have updates on the situation as information becomes available.
