CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Clarksville-Montgomery County School System has announced that all traditional students will transition to remote learning until the beginning of January.
The district said all CMCSS traditional students will begin virtual learning on Wednesday and continue it through Friday. Because Monday is a pre-planned, district-wide remote learning day before winter break, traditional students will not return to buildings until Monday, January 4.
As a result, athletics and extracurricular events will be canceled or postponed. Teachers will communicate with students on how to access lessons, and students will use laptops provided by the district.
Families who need access to no-cost meals may pick them up at any CMCSS elementary school on the following days:
- Weekend meals will be available on Fri., Dec. 18 from 1 – 2 p.m.
- Meals for remote learning and Winter Break will be available on Mon., Dec. 21 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Clarksville-Montgomery County Schools said the change is due to staffing issues and in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
“While the CMCSS Communicable Disease Team (CDT) and the Montgomery County Health Department (MCHD) do not have specific thresholds for transitioning to remote learning, other than community spread, recent community and statewide data have heightened concerns,” the district said in a release.
