As we begin the school year during these unprecedented times, the school districts are taking precautions to keep all students and staff members safe. School district representatives from Coffee County, Manchester City and Tullahoma City, the Coffee County Department of Health, along with other stakeholders (local physicians, teachers, parents, etc.) collaborated to prepare for a safe and effective opening of schools.
The attached Pathway to Re-entry Plan was developed and will be monitored and updated as more information becomes available through state and health guidelines. This plan conveys several health and safety considerations that will be followed as we return to school.
Upon arrival, students’ temperatures will be taken. Conversations with students will determine how they are feeling and if they have any possible symptoms that need further assessment. School health officials will be responsible for evaluating potential COVID-19 symptoms that may require your student to go home and be seen by a healthcare provider. If your student is sent home, you will be provided the appropriate form to be completed by your healthcare provider for your student to return to school. Appropriate notification will be made when a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19.
Keeping you informed and up to date is important to us. Since COVID-19 information changes based on the current situation, please monitor websites, media outlets, social media, and the phone/email alert system. Thank you for your understanding, support and flexibility as we navigate these unusual times together.
