Good evening, this message is to thank everyone for their diligent efforts during the last few weeks before the Thanksgiving holiday. While we are still very much concerned about the number of positive cases, our community has seen a decrease over the last 7 days. With that in mind, the plan has been to return to our in-person learning schedule tomorrow, Monday, November 30, at all schools in the system. Please understand, we will be monitoring the status of each school on a daily basis and remote learning remains a possibility at any time. I will do my absolute best to give as much notice as possible in the event we are forced to move in that direction. Our job as educators remains the same, we are focused on the safety of our students and staff as well as the critical mission of educating all students. As a community, we can all do our part by doing the things that are necessary to limit the spread of this virus. Parents, if your child is displaying any symptoms related to the virus, please keep them home. Please be patient with us as we enforce the requirements from the state of Tennessee related to isolation and quarantine. Additionally, the weather forecast is calling for the possibility of winter weather tomorrow and into tomorrow evening. Any decision regarding school status related to weather will be communicated via this messaging system and media outlets as soon as it is made. It is important for me to note, if winter weather occurs and necessitates a status change, schools will be announced as closed. Students will not be asked to learn remotely on those days. In a year of change, the least we can do is give our kids a snow day if and when it happens. If we were to use all of our stockpiled days, that decision could be reevaluated in order to keep from having to add days elsewhere in our calendar. Finally, once again I want to thank you for all that you are doing to help your student and our school system.
