   Tallulah Falls will not restart on-campus classes the rest of the school year, President Larry Peevy announced Wednesday.
   “We continue moving forward to meet the challenges of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as they relate to the Tallulah Falls School campus and our local and international families. We appreciate the continuing understanding and support of the TFS family as we assess the situation to make decisions that will ensure the safety of all our students, faculty and staff,” Peevy said in a letter on the school’s web site.

   “While all of our teachers and administrators would prefer to hold classes in person, we feel these steps are necessary and are in the best interest of the entire TFS community,” Peevy said. “All of the school’s immediate efforts continue to be focused on supporting our students, faculty and staff.
   Dormitories have been closed and all boarding students have returned home or to another location.
   Plans for the prom and graduation are currently being evaluated by the TFS administration staff.
   “Unfortunately, a traditional commencement ceremony will not be possible. TFS faculty, staff and administration recognize that graduation is a joyous time for our students and their families. The school is working to develop an alternative commencement plan to celebrate all of our deserving graduates impacted this spring,” Peevy said.
