MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WTVF) — More students will head back to the classroom in Wilson County on Monday.
Until this week, most students within Wilson County Schools were still on a hybrid schedule, meaning they were taking classes both online and in person. On Monday, fourth and fifth graders will come back to full-time traditional classes.
Kindergarten through third-grade students have already been back to school full-time for several weeks.
This leaves sixth through 12th graders remaining on a hybrid schedule. District leaders said they will keep an eye on the county's health trends over the next 20 days to decide on the next steps of those older students.
There are three options the district is considering: They could stay in a modified hybrid schedule, go back to traditional learning or fully transition to remote learning if the trends are not looking good.
The board of education is expected to discuss these options at its next meeting on November 2.
Wilson County parents should be aware of another important deadline coming up. Enrollment for remote learning for the spring semester opened on Monday and will close on October 30.
