MNPS re-launches in-person learning, but 4 students in 10 will stay home
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) — Metro Nashville Schools will begin returning students to in-person learning this week, but nearly half have opted to continue learning remotely.
In a press statement released Monday, MNPS says special needs students will be back in classrooms Thursday.
Children in Kindergarten through fourth grade will return to in-person learning one week from today.
Grades 5 through 9 will return to classrooms in the second half of the month.
High school students in grades 10, 11 and 12 return to class March 3.
Only slightly more than half of Metro’s students will actually return to in-person classes in the coming weeks. Back in December, 45 percent of Nashville parents chose to have their children continue to learn remotely through the end of the school year.
