SAVANNAH, GA – March 8, 2021 – This morning, Savannah Classical Academy (SCA) Executive Director Barry Lollis led 46 faculty/staff members in becoming the first educators in the district to receive the Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine. This single-dose vaccine was administered onsite by pharmacists from Village Walk Pharmacy.
Since reopening for in-person learning in August, SCA has rigorously enforced prevention measures including daily symptom screening, social distancing, enhanced disinfecting and sanitation protocols, and many facility upgrades including air purification systems and germicidal UV-C entryway lighting.
“I’m happy to see our teachers leading the community in receiving this vaccine,” said SCA Director Barry Lollis. “It is helpful that the vast majority of our faculty members are now because it’s important that SCA remains open in order to continue serving students on-campus in the best learning environment possible.”
SCA is a tuition-free, public charter school serving Chatham County students in grades K-12. The charter school is funded by the public education system but retains a charter that allows it to operate autonomously under a board of parents and community members. It is the philosophy of SCA that all students benefit from a rigorous, content-rich, education program that develops academic potential and personal character.
