Schools finalize plans to open August 3

Not all parents agree with the plan, but Sequatchie County Schools will open on August 3 with COVID-19-related measures in place. Director of Schools Pete Swafford said the system will work with families on their specific concerns, including supplying computers for remote learning. A complete virtual learning plan is also available.

The Sequatchie County Board of Education approved a “hybrid” learning schedule during their July 21 meeting. Students will be in class at schools two days per week and the other three days, will have remote learning via Google Classroom.

    I think that the school board needs to have kids in school and have to figure out how to keep their jobs. I have to work 5 days a week and sometimes 6. I’m a single grandma just trying to raise my grandson, keep a roof over his head and food on the table but how do I do that and make sure he’s doing the at home stuff? Would you like to come and make sure he’s doing what he’s supposed to be doing? If I lose my job are you going to pay my bills. You guys need to consider this again! Just let them go to school and stay in one room. Let the teachers change classes.
