LEBANON, Tenn. (WTVF) — Wilson County School officials announced that K-5 students will transition to a full-time traditional learning schedule beginning Mon., Jan. 25. Voluntary Pre-K and Exceptional Education Pre-K students will transition to a full-time traditional schedule as well.

Students in grades 6-12 will remain on the current hybrid model. And masks/face coverings will still be required for all students in grades K-12.

School officials say they will continue to monitor local health data daily. "Our intent is to remain in these models unless critical data points indicate that a change is necessary," the announcement stated.

"Please keep in mind that if an individual school becomes too difficult to staff or illnesses cause a significant amount of absences, then the district would highly consider placing that individual school on a Remote Teaching and Learning schedule for a minimal two week period. This measure was applied multiple times during the fall semester. The reason was to allow for ample recovery and prevention time."

Families with K-5 students can expect to receive additional information from their respective schools about next week’s transition to the full-time traditional model.
