As we enter this unique opening of the school year, Tullahoma schools are committed to providing a high-quality learning experience that supports each student’s academic, social, and emotional development whether instruction is delivered virtually or in a traditional classroom setting.
The district believes education is vital for the healthy development and well-being of children but want to re-opening pathway that is the safest for all students, teachers, and support staff. Based upon active
COVID-19 case counts, they plan to start the 2020-2021 school year offering traditional classroom instruction or distance learning. Decisions to change the instructional model will be driven by the Pathway to Re-entry 2020-2021 chart which is located on the district and schools’ websites under the Parents & Students tab.
The Tullahoma school system is dedicated to: protecting the health and safety of students, faculty, support staff, parents, guardians, and others; ensuring the social and emotional well-being and the mental health of our students and employees; communicating up-to-date, relevant information with all stakeholders on a regular basis; seeking guidance and input from an array of representatives who have expertise in health and safety standards and protocols; providing ongoing and continual support for those engaged in distance learning: taking daily temperature checks onsite upon arrival; minimizing the sharing of supplies and equipment; scheduling routine cleaning and disinfecting throughout the day; practicing effective hand hygiene and increasing hand-washing throughout the day.
Limiting outside visitors; recommending masks be worn by all students, faculty, and support staff: being flexible in response to shifting scenarios or phases on the Pathway to Re-entry Chart and ‘or adhering mitigation strategies, as necessary.
