Giles County Schools have extended their closures through April 24th.

The decision, announced by Schools Acting Director Vickie Beard comes in response to Governor Bill Lee's recommendation that school districts across the state remain closed through April 24th.

Giles County School System continues to offer free meal pickup programs for children this week.

Education Commissioner Penny Schwinn said she knows school closures represent a significant disruption for families and students and the recommendation to extend them has not been considered lightly.
