A row of houses near Canton, Ga., in Cherokee County, Aug. 9, 2020. A suburban Atlanta county opened its schools amid controversy and a growing case count, previewing a difficult national back-to-school season.

CANTON, Ga. – The first letter went out Aug. 4, one day after students in the Cherokee County School District returned to their classrooms for the first time since the eruption of the coronavirus pandemic.

"Dear Parents," wrote Dr. Ashley Kennerly, the principal of Sixes Elementary School. "I am writing this letter in order to communicate that a student in 2nd grade has tested positive for COVID-19."

By the time the last bell rang Friday, principals at 10 other schools had sent similar letters to families in Cherokee County, a bucolic and politically conservative stretch of suburbs north of Atlanta. This week, more letters went out.
