E-Learning Days January 19-21, 2022

Parents, this is a message from your superintendent. 


Coosa County Parents, We are experiencing a high number of staff and student COVID cases in the high
school and the elementary school.

With the rise in cases, we are opting to have E-Learning Wednesday-Friday, 19 th -21 st January. E- Learning will potentially alleviate the spread of COVID. You will be contacted by your students teacher on the format the E-Learning will be administered. Please make sure your student is taking part in all school related sessions.

We ask that your student not take this time to congregate with their friends and outside family, hoping to slow the chances of getting COVID.

If your student contracts COVID, please contact your schools nurse so we can track their progress.

Today we will send home 3 breakfast meals with your student. If you would like to pick up lunches for Wednesday thru Friday, please go on the schools website and sign up to pick up lunches. Pickup times will be Wednesday 11:30-1:00pm.

We are projecting to return to school on Monday, 24 th of January at this time.

Thank you, Mr. Stover

This is a message from your Superintendent Mr. David Stover. 

Parents, I hope you and your families had a great holiday and were able to spend some quality time together.  I wanted to thank you all for what you and your students do to make this school system a great place to attend.  This message will be lengthy, so please listen to the entire message. This message can also be read on the district website or on your students school website.

I am sure you have been made aware of the new variant Omicron that has made its way into our community. This variant is easily transmitted and hitting our community and those surrounding us hard.

We have two goals.

The first goal is keeping our students, teachers, parents and administration safe through this pandemic.

Our second goal is to keep our schools open so our children will continue their academic growth with limited disruption.

We have been successful with keeping our students in school, as well as safe, for a full year with limited disruptions.  So, we are going to make sure this continues.
Coosa County Schools will go back to mandatory mask mandates while in Coosa County School buildings and continue to be worn on school buses. Masks will be optional outside of those facilities.  
This Mandate will continue through the month of January.  We will watch what is developing and re-assess February 1st on the current status of COVID outbreaks.

Benefits of mask wearing are  Students will be protected from transmission of COVID and When we have a Positive case of a student in our school, we will not have to quarantine those around them as long as masks are worn.

Parents, we ask that you send your students to school with masks each day and take temperatures each day prior to sending students to school. Also, Communicate with your students school nurse of positive cases. 

We need to continue to work together to get through these crazy times.  Just know we will do everything we can to ensure your students safety and academic growth through the COVID pandemic.


Thank you for all you do.  We look forward to seeing our students on Tuesday.

World History Students Recreate Industrial Revolution Inventions for a Museum Exhibit

Reagan Cardwell
9th grade modern world history students chose an industrial revolution invention to recreate for a museum exhibit.  The model also included a museum label with the inventor, date, and how the invention revolutionized industry.  As was often the case during the industrial revolution, our models were a competition with the reward being chocolate, specifically Belgian chocolate because Belgium was the first country to industrialize after Great Britain.  Winners in each class period were  Regan Cardwell  who recreated Robert Fulton's steamboat, the Clermont, which sped up transportation of people and goods.   Abbigal Mizzel also recreated the Clermont steamboat, but Mizzel used a foam base so her steamboat could float.  Jakaden Lauderdale recreated George Stephenson's steam locomotive, the Rocket. Students were told to be resourceful and use what they had so Jakaden used raisins to represent coal.  The judges of the competition were 12th graders who created the models themselves when they were in 9th grade.

Economics Students Simulate Production in Command and Market Economies by Making Badges for Economists


Wesley Thomas
12th grade economics students participated in a simulation to contrast production in command (communist) economies and market (capitalist) economies.  Students were able to experience that when all the production decisions are dictated by the government, as is the case in command economies, the result is unmotivated workers and shoddy products (exhibit 1).  In fact the students became so frustrated with the government in the first simulation they were asking to move before the simulation was even complete!  Whereas in a market economy where consumers and producers are able to make production decisions and are motivated by profits or income, higher quality and a variety of products are produced.  Some students, such as Wesley Thomas (above), even did market research to find out what type of badge an economist would like when his production group created a Dow Jones Industrial Average badge. Student workers were so much happier in the second simulation in the capitalist country that they proudly wore the products they created.

Congratulations to 11th grader, Dequalon Thomas, and 9th grader, Torrance Kelley for receiving the "Reputation on the Line" ROTL Student of the Week Award.  The award honors outstanding student athletics who demonstrate leadership skills on and off the court.  The award was presented to Dequalon and Torrance by Eltoro Freeman, who is the founder of ROTL.   
As mandated by the state of Alabama, every senior in the state must pass a 100 question Civics Exam in order to graduate. The state requires a minimum score of 60% to pass, but our senior class averaged an 80% on the exam.  Two of our seniors, Raamiah Gaddis and Jeiby Garcia, scored a perfect 100 score.  Some of our seniors were able to take a picture as they celebrated being one step closer to graduating
