It is with deep sadness and regret that we inform you of the passing of our beloved Barthonia (Bart) Pinckney. He will be missed terribly. As a math teacher and coach at Griffin High School, Coach Pinckney was dedicated to and passionate about his work. He was goal oriented, enjoyed helping students and influenced many lives. He coached track, basketball and football. His career in Griffin Spalding County Schools spanned 13 years. Coach Pinckney served as teacher and coach at Carver Road Middle School, Spalding High School and Griffin High School. Rest in peace, Mr. Pinckney. Thank you for all you gave to our students and staff.

GSCS Spring Semester to Begin in Remote, At-Home Learning
The Griffin-Spalding County School System (GSCS) will continue to operate in a remote at-home learning model. COVID-19 numbers in our community have continued to rise, and area hospitals remain full and are deferring patients elsewhere. GSCS district leaders regularly meet with a regional epidemiologist and other officials from Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH). Based on recent data reviewed, GSCS leadership felt this to be the best course of action. GSCS will continue to meet weekly with DPH officials to discuss trends in COVID data. Students will continue to complete learning tasks from home, via chromebooks, until further notice. This decision will be reevaluated in the coming weeks, with a possible return to in-person learning on March 1.
