Greater Nashville school systems move, cautiously, into the new school year
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Sumner County kicked off the Greater Nashville area school year Monday under the shadow of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
Sumner schools are offering a mix of in-person and remote learning, beginning with a two week phase in period. Every student will be required to wear a mask.
Nashville students return to school Tuesday, but will do so remotely through at least Labor Day.
Williamson County Schools start a two-week, slow-roll opening on Friday. Williamson will require students in grades two and under to attend in-person. Third grade through high school will return to a hybrid model; some days attending remotely, some in person.
Wilson and Rutherford Counties start on Monday, Aug. 10, also using a hybrid model. Cheatham County will open classes on Aug. 13.
Every system in the Metro area is providing most students with an online-only learning option for those concerned about returning to class.
