Rutherford County Schools will delay the first day of school to Thursday, August 13th.
James Evans, spokesman for the school system, details the reason for the delay:
The deadline to sign up for distance learning was Tuesday.
Evans says the individual schools will be in contact with parents to give more specifics about the first day of school, laptop pickup and other information.
So again, the first day of school will be Thursday, Aug. 13 and it will be a three-hour, 15-minute day for all students, both in-person and those on distance-learning. Friday, Aug. 14 will also be a three-hour, 15-minute day. We will begin full days on Monday, Aug. 17.
