Logan Sykes & Gracey Suggs   MCHS

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, a conversation that CMCSS continues all school year. Two Montgomery Central High students, Logan Sykes and Gracey Suggs shared their thoughts on anti-bullying. Their message encourages CMCSS students and staff to be a positive force in the schools. Also, they urged classmates to stand against bullying with student-led initiatives. This year, schools will promote the "Be a Buddy, Not a Bully" initiative.

Bullying can begin anywhere, at home, in a team environment, and, unfortunately, within a school. CMCSS district leaders continue to review and discuss bullying prevention topics within schools. However, the entire community needs to support the anti-bullying effort.

Technology Department

The CMCSS Technology team has had quite the year. This department has proven their worth time and again, continuing to meet adversity head-on. In just a few short months, they programmed tens of thousands of computers for our students and educators. When faced with the circumstances surrounding virtual learning and technology issues, they put in long hours and continued to find innovative solutions. Each day the team fielded frustration and expectation with calm and empathetic resolve. They are truly role models for patience and perseverance this year. Thank you to our technology superstars.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

As a reminder, CMCSS schools will be closed in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 18. Classes will resume Tuesday, January 19.

As a reminder, there will be no school on Monday, January 18 in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King., Jr. Day. Classes for all students will resume on Tuesday, January 19, with traditional students continuing to learn remotely.

As we shared before Winter Break, the district has a contingency plan for a prioritized return to in-person learning for our youngest students. On Monday, January 25, CMCSS Pre-K through sixth-grade traditional students will return to in-person learning. Seventh through twelfth-grade traditional students will continue learning remotely until further notice. Next week, schools will be reaching out to parents and guardians of students in seventh through twelfth grade who are in self-contained, special populations classrooms to share more information about a phased return to in-person learning the week of January 25. After evaluating this phased return, the district will share more information about the return to in-person learning for all traditional students in upper grades.

On average, there have been around 300 more students per grade level impacted by COVID-19 cases in the district’s upper grades than lower grades. CMCSS is prioritizing an in-person return for younger students and those in self-contained classrooms due to the greater difficulty distance learning poses for these students, the lower transmission rates among younger children, and the greater childcare burden placed on families with younger children. The district is hopeful this phased approach will help address staffing issues due to COVID-19 related leave and the substitute shortage that are expected to continue as the pandemic still exists.

Due to the ever-changing circumstances of the pandemic, families should always have plans in the event that school buildings are closed and remote learning must take place. Additionally, the Tennessee Department of Health’s requirements for contact tracing and quarantines are still in place. Therefore, families should have plans in the event a child must transition to remote learning due to being a close contact to a positive case.

Finally, as Onsite Employee Health and Wellness partners with the Montgomery County Health Department to distribute vaccines to CMCSS employees in the coming weeks, the potential exists that schools will temporarily transition to remote learning in order to expedite the vaccination process. The Communications Department will communicate with families as soon as plans are finalized.

Happy Monday! Have a wonderful week! #cmcss #schoolsystem #clarksvilletn #clarksvilletennessee #iloveclarksville #mondaymotivation ...

Monday, January 4 will be a remote learning day for all CMCSS traditional students. District leadership has reviewed Gov. Lee’s Executive Order #70 and is seeking guidance from local and state agencies on its implications for in-person learning through mid-January. Over Winter Break, district leaders will continue meeting to review the latest data and guidance to make decisions in the best interest of the physical, social, and emotional health and well-being of students and employees. If remote learning needs to be extended, the district will make every effort to communicate this extension to families no later than Monday, December 28.

District leaders understand changes like these present challenges for families and strive not to disrupt in-person learning unless deemed necessary as CMCSS responds to the conditions of the pandemic.

The district cannot reiterate enough that families choosing traditional, in-person learning for their child(ren) should make preparations throughout the year in the event that school buildings are closed and remote learning must take place. The CMCSS Communicable Disease Team and the Montgomery County Health Department review the local spread of COVID-19 and other data on a daily basis to make school-based and district-wide decisions. As of yesterday, Montgomery County’s community spread reached an all-time high of 0.859% and has continued to increase 12 out of the last 14 days.

Please follow the guidance of our local, state, and national public health officials and medical experts to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
