Return to In-Person Learning Delayed Amid COVID-19 Surge
UPDATE (12/11/20): Shelby County Schools is delaying the planned return to in-person learning due to the current surge
in COVID-19 cases in Shelby County. The District had planned to reopen schools on January 4; however, the phased return of students to in-person learning
will be delayed. Schools will reopen no earlier than the second semester, February 8 (Pre-K-5) and February 22 (6-12). As we have
seen throughout the pandemic, these are uncertain times, and we will remain flexible around our reopening proposal.
The District will follow the same phased return plan. Pre-K - 5th grade students would return first. Grades 6-12 would return a few weeks later.
Students with disabilities or in self-contained classrooms will return within their grade bands.
Prior to our return to in-person learning,
the District will host a virtual town hall to provide more information. Schools will also be hosting individual virtual open houses to share their
plans with families.
The information and resources below are designed to inform families about our preparations for reopening of schools.
