MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WTVF) — Wilson County Schools has released its plan for schools affected by last week’s deadly tornado.

Four schools will operate on four-hour sessions to accommodate students affected by Tuesday’s storm. Both Stoner Creek Elementary and West Wilson Middle were damaged beyond repair.

Stoner Creek Elementary will operate from 6:45 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. at Springdale Elementary, which will operate from noon – 4 p.m.

West Wilson Middle will operate from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. at Mt. Juliet Middle, which will operate from 8 a.m. – noon.

Wilson County Schools said the schedule allows students to remain with their teachers and asked for parents’ patience as they revealed the plan.

“Had [the tornado] been two hours earlier, we would have experienced fatalities,” said Director of Schools Donna Wright. “We can build buildings, we cannot replace our kids, teachers and that’s the thing we have to keep focused.”
