Reopening options discussed by Board

Sequatchie County School officials continue to work on determining the best possible plan for opening schools for the 2020-2021 year, slated to begin August 3, while listening to parent concerns plus opinion and guidelines from health experts. The Sequatchie County Board of Education met on July 6 and Director of Schools Pete Swafford further discussed the situation on July 10.

Four possible plans or scenarios for the reopening are being studied, Director Swafford explained. These include;

(A) all students being inside the physical building (schools);

(B) some students in the physical building and some students virtual (online);

(C) alternating physical building and virtual schedules; and

(D) all students virtual (online).

    If the schools reopen all it is doing is putting the kids and teachers at risk it’s best to leave them closed for now

    Virtual. At least for the fall, cases aren’t high in sequatchie but they aren’t decreasing either, still rising. Reopening too soon and I’m afraid there will be a shut down at some point, there will be cases at school.
