The GRACEPOINT Board of Directors and Administration have been actively pursuing new property over the past two years. They have long recognized the limited potential for growth and the need for more space for our current students at our Piedmont location. After much searching, we currently have a pending purchase agreement with Must Ministries. One of the many steps in this process was the rezoning of this property on Cobb Parkway. We have seen God’s hand at work over this entire process including the great news received Wednesday night, March 9 that the City Council has approved the rezoning of the Must Ministries property for a school.

As we move into the winter months, Cobb & Douglas Public Health has asked us to share information regarding the growing number of flu cases in our community and school systems. Overall, Georgia is seeing an earlier start to the flu season, and the health department anticipates little natural immunity due to the light flu season last year. Locally, they are also seeing some early flu clusters in K-12 and university settings. There is a growing concern due to the low number of people who are already vaccinated for the flu. Please review the following information from our local health department.
