The St. Patrick's Day school Holiday has been moved! Instead of being closed on St. Patrick's Day, which is March 17th, Effingham schools will now be closed on Friday, March 19th. This is due to the lack of St. Patrick's Day events being held in Savannah because of Covid. We hope all of our Blue Jays will enjoy this upcoming Three Day Weekend!
