From Superintendent Richard Smith: Welcome to Toombs County Schools, the home of great students, great teachers, and great parents! Our focus is our children. We strive to meet each child where they are and take them to where they need to be. The number one goal is for every student to be handed a diploma at the end of a successful school experience.
When you put your child in a Toombs County School, you are placing your most precious asset in our hands. That takes trust. We will work each day to earn that trust so that you know your child is in a safe, caring place. We want you to feel your child is receiving quality instruction from a teacher who has your child’s best interest at heart. We will treat each student like they are our own.
Toombs County will open a new High School this fall. It is state of the art and equipped to take our students to the next step in their lives. In our halls walk future doctors, teachers, lawyers, farmers, nurses and members of the armed forces. Our job is to prepare them to take that step towards wherever they wish to go. When the students work hard and the teachers deliver quality lessons, anything is possible!
Anytime you have questions or need help, we encourage you to contact your child’s school and speak with their teachers and principal. Our central office will be open and willing to assist you with anything we can. Strengthening the partnership between the school, the home, and the community is a priority. We all have the same goal, to educate our children. We all must do what it takes to get that accomplished!

All foods and beverages made available on campus during the school day shall be consistent with the requirements of federal and state law. Guidelines for reimbursable school meals shall not be less restrictive than regulations and guidance issued by the U.S. Secretary pursuant to the Child Nutrition Act and the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act, as those regulations and guidance apply to schools.
The Superintendent or designee shall convene a wellness policy committee consisting of school system and community representatives from areas designated in federal law to participate in the development, implementation and periodic review of school wellness policies. Such policies shall contain, at a minimum:
1. Specific goals for nutrition promotion and education, physical activity, and other school-based activities that promote student wellness;
2. Standards and nutrition guidelines for all foods and beverages available on campus during the school day that:
a. are consistent with federal meal pattern requirements and nutrition standards;
b. prohibit the sale to students on the school campus during the school day of competitive foods that do not meet the federal criteria; and,
c. adhere to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 and state requirements regarding exempt fundraisers.
3. Identification of the position of district or school official(s) responsible for the oversight to ensure each school’s compliance with the wellness policy;
4. A description of the manner in which parents, students, and representatives of school food service, physical education teachers, school health professions, the school board, school administrators, and the general public are provided an opportunity to participate in the development, implementation, and periodic review of the wellness policy; and
5. A description of the plan for measuring the implementation of the wellness policy and for reporting to the public its content and implementation issues.
The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that each participating school complies with the wellness policy; that periodic assessments and progress reports are conducted in accordance with state and federal timelines and other requirements; and, that appropriate updates or modifications are made as needed.
