Jan. 29 Update on Phased Return to In-Person Learning (Grades 7-12)

January 29, 2021

Good afternoon, CMCSS families,

On Monday, February 8, all CMCSS seventh through twelfth-grade traditional students will return to in-person learning. Although staffing issues and the substitute shortage are expected to continue during the pandemic, COVID-19 related leave has continued to decrease as Clarksville-Montgomery County’s COVID-19 data continues to improve. The district’s Communicable Disease Team is hopeful that there will be limited disruptions to in-person learning, but the potential exists for future school-based or district-wide closures.

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.

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.

Finally, if you or someone you know is able to serve as a substitute teacher, bus driver, or any position in the district, please visit cmcss.net/employment for more information on how to join a team of employees who are working hard to keep our schools safe and open.

Thank you for your continued understanding and support.
