Coffee County Director of Schools Explains Possible Graduation Date as they Work to Clarify

Director of Coffee County Schools, Dr. Charles Lawson issued a statement on Tuesday concerning the high school graduation. He stated that once again in the position of trying to accommodate ever-changing guidance during the current health emergency created by COVID-19. 

Lawson said, “On April 20, Governor Lee announced that Tennessee’s shelter-in-place order (**actually Safer at Home order) will be allowed to expire, and many businesses would be allowed to open on May 1. This guidance will not affect schools which will remain closed based on the governor’s recommendation. However, the relaxing of social restrictions may impact graduation.”

Lawson says that discussions over the last few days have created possible alternative plans for holding graduation on the originally scheduled date. He said that this statement is simply to alert the people of Coffee County that graduation might still happen on May 22. Final decisions will be made as soon as possible.

Coffee County Schools does not wish to frustrate anyone with changing stances on these issues. District decisions of this type are being adjusted with changing guidance from local, state, and federal entities. Lawson added, please be patient as we attempt to do what is best for the students and the community.”
