NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  Nashville parents will likely learn Tuesday whether the city’s 86,000 school children will continue to learn remotely from home, or return to the classroom after Labor Day.

The Metro School Board has a meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. Tuesday evening. 

During the week in early July that the school board decided to start the year leaning online, Nashville reported nearly 2900 new cases of COVID-19.

This past week, the city confirmed just under 940 new infections, a marked improvement.

However, four of the key metrics Metro health officials track on the city’s coronavirus dashboard are still yellow, indicating numbers that remain unacceptably high.
