Media Release

Media Release - Director of Schools Glenda Dykes 7/10/2020

Our Goal is to provide a safe - learning environment for ALL children. Grundy County plans to return to school on the most recent calendar for 2020-2021 . This will bring teachers back on August 3rd and students back on the abbreviated day of August 7th with the first full day on August 10th.

These are the first guidelines to be released:

Students and staff will have daily temperature checks each morning. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or more will be required to go home. PLEASE do not send your child to school with an elevated temperature. Parents are encouraged to check their child's temperature each morning.

Hand sanitizer and soap/water will be used throughout the day.

Social Distancing will be strongly encouraged and enforced as much as possible. This includes the classroom, cafeteria, hallway, gymnasium, and outside.


There will be options for your child's education upon returning to school. When completing one's learning virtuälly, attendance will be taken daily online at 8:00 a.m. All work assignments will be expected to be completed in a timely manner. Students wili watch the teacher on-line while he/she instructs the classm Grades will be given for all work completed or not completed. State requirements will be much more strenuous than they were tn the spring semester. Teachers, parents, and students are expected to communicate daily to support the students' needs.

Transportation. Social distancing will be challenging on buses, Students are encouraged to sit with family members while being transported to and from school.

Masks: As of now, wearing masks is optional; however, it will be encouraged for both teachers and students. Masks for students wili be provided by schools until masks are all used up. After all masks are used up: parents will be responsible to provide masks if their student needs one.

The cafeteria will be open for all students attending school traditionally. Meals will be provided each Tuesday for virtual fearners to pick up outside their home school. Meals will be distributed between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. for virtual learners for five days at a time. The day and times are subject to change based on further guidance.

"This has been a very stressful and trying time for everyone involved with the pandemic. I truly appreciate the work that teachers, assistants, cooks, administrators, and supervisors have done to make the best decisions possible for our students of Grundy County. I appreciate the support of parents and community members during this time as well."

"We will continue to keep you informed through our webpage as well as other media as the need arises as we prepare to open schools for the 2020-2021 school year.

"Parents, your support and understanding will be very important as we endeavor to educate the students of Grundy County in unprecedented times.

Thank you,

Glenda Dykes
