With the calendar drawing closer to Aug. 1, back-to-school events are beginning to pile up.
One of the biggest primers for the first day is open house, and the Baldwin County School District (BCSD) has set those dates and times for families to tour their schools and meet their kids’ teachers.
Oak Hill Middle School and Baldwin High School open houses are scheduled for Friday, July 30. BCSD has created time slots for families to attend so everyone can maintain social distancing since the COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing. All families, no matter the grade level, will have morning and afternoon open house attendance options. Oak Hill’s time slots are based on grade levels. Sixth-grade families may come between 9 and 10 a.m. or 1 to 2 p.m. Seventh-grade families have a 10-11 a.m. option or 2-3 p.m. slot. Eighth-graders can come between 11 a.m. and 12 noon or 3-4 p.m. Baldwin High’s configuration is similar. Ninth- and 10th-grade families can come between 8 and 10 a.m. or 1 to 3 p.m. Rising junior and senior families have a 10 a.m. to noon option or 3 to 5 p.m. on July 30.
Lakeview Primary, Lakeview Academy, Midway Hills Primary and Midway Hills Academy will have their open house events Monday, Aug. 2. Open house attendance times for those schools are based on the first letter of the last name of the attending student. Students with last names beginning with the letters A-H can come between 9 and 10 a.m. or 1 to 2 p.m. I-Q last names have been set for 10-11 a.m. or 2-3 p.m., and R-Z last names may come from 11 a.m. to 12 noon or 3-4 p.m. on Aug. 2.
Open house for the Georgia College Early College program, housed on the GC campus, will take place Sunday, Aug. 1 from 3-5 p.m.
Open houses are only for those students coming to school in person this year. Families who chose the Baldwin Online Academy option will receive a virtual open house link from their assigned teachers.
BCSD asks that each student attending an open house bring only four visitors. Anyone feeling sick or that’s been around others with COVID-19 symptoms should refrain from coming to open house.
