The health and safety of the Smith County School System — students, teachers, staff and volunteers—is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the reports and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Tennessee Department of Education as well as local public health organizations, and are working to ensure that we do everything we can during this rapidly changing situation.
Smith County Schools are implementing preventive measures in regards to the Coronavirus. We want our staff, students, and parents to know we are taking the recommended CDC and TDOE prevention guidelines. Our staff is sanitizing schools and buses daily and thoroughly cleaning frequently touched surfaces and stocking schools with extra soap, paper towels, and disinfectant wipes. Teachers will be allowing more time for hand-washing and the school system has provided guidance to principals to help support them in making the best possible decisions for their students, school, and community.
