ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. (WTVF) — Cheatham County Schools said COVID-19 quarantines and precautions have affected two bus routes.

The school district said beginning Tuesday, all students who ride bus route 24 will be on quarantine due to COVID-19 exposure. Those students, who attend East Cheatham Elementary School, Sycamore Middle School or Sycamore High School, will return to the classroom on Monday, Nov. 9. They will participate in virtual learning until that date.

Parents should reach out to their child’s school for further instructions.

Additionally, bus route 4 will not run until further notice beginning today. Students who attend West Cheatham Elementary School, Cheatham Middle School and Cheatham County Central High School are affected.

Cheatham County Schools said these parents have two options: arrange other ways for their children to get to school or transition to virtual learning.
