NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Robert Churchwell Museum Magnet Elementary School will be closed and will transition to virtual learning due to COVID-19.

MNPS officials announced in a press release that a total of 21 staff members and one student are in quarantine because of a COVID-19 exposure.

“While we believe the risk of transmission based on the circumstances of this situation is low, health protocols dictate that we take this step in order to protect the health and safety of staff and students,” said Director of Schools Dr. Adrienne Battle in the release. “Our staff will continue to work with students to provide a meaningful learning experience in the virtual environment until the school can safely re-open.”

As a result, the school will be closed to in-person learning for two weeks, and students will learn virtually until October 29 including 3rd and 4th-grade students who were scheduled to attend in person starting on October 20.
