The school will open with only two classrooms for every grade level in Grades K-6. Parents will be responsible for transporting their children to and from school as busing will not be provided at this time.

Note: The Governor’s June 29 Executive Order delayed the opening of schools for on-site learning to August 17. Until the executive order is lifted, EFGA will provide instruction via an online/distance learning format. Read more at
