Cannon County Schools has announced that Monday, November 30th, 2020 will be a regular to On-Campus Instruction for ALL Cannon County Schools’ students. ALL Students will report to their respective schools for “live” instruction from their teachers.
Director of Cannon County Schools, William F. Curtis, stated, “Monday, November 30th, 2020 will mark a return to On-Campus Instruction. Even though Cannon County active cases are averaging around 130, reported cases or contacts in Cannon County Schools are low."
As of November 24th, 2020, Cannon County Schools have REPORTED – 0 student active cases, 2 staff active cases, 21 student active contacts and 12 staff active contacts.
The Schools Director continued, "We are hopeful that these cases/contacts of COVID-19 will remain low in our schools during the coming weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas Break. December 18th, 2020 is designated as an ‘Abbreviated Day’ and students will be dismissed for Christmas Break at 10:00 AM on that date. Students will return and Cannon County Schools will be ‘Back in Session’ on Monday, January 4th, 2021.”
Curtis said, “This is a very fluid situation and the Cannon County Board of Education’s desire is to return to On-Campus learning, but balances this desire with the safety and health of our students. So a return to Distance Learning could occur before Christmas Break begins on December 18th, 2020 depending on the number of cases and contacts in our schools. We monitor the numbers each day reported to our School Nurse and then consult with Local, Regional, and State Officials with the Tennessee Department of Health."
Again, Cannon County School students will be back on their campuses Monday, November 30th, 2020.
