Good afternoon Trojans. Due to the continuing high level of COVID-19 cases in our community, health district, and state, we will extend the delay of in-person instruction until January 19, 2021. Staff should report to work as scheduled. Students will continue online/packet learning and information about ongoing assignments will be announced by each school. This decision is based on the safety and well-being of our students, staff, and community. Thank you for your patience and support during this time, and we look forward to the return of our students. We will continue to monitor the COVID situation and provide updates as they develop. May God bless each of you.

The Telfair County School District is honored to announce that Telfair County Elementary School has been named a Reward School for 2017 by the Georgia Department of Education. TCES was named a Reward School in the Highest-Progress School category. Highest-Progress Schools are among the top 10 percent of the state’s Title I schools in making the most progress in improving the performance of the “all students” group over three years (2013 – 2015) on statewide assessments. TCES was one of only four schools in our entire RESA district to achieve this impressive distinction. We would like to congratulate our administrators, faculty members, staff members, community supporters, and, of course, students for this outstanding achievement. Thanks to each of you for your unwavering commitment to the “Pursuit of Excellence.”
