MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WTVF) — Pre-K through third grade will be returning to school every day this week in Wilson County as part of the school district's phased approach to sending kids safely back to school.
These students were on a hybrid schedule for the last few weeks, meaning a few days at home and the rest at school. But starting Monday, those pre-K through third-grade students will transition back to full-time traditional learning.
The older students will not be affected by Monday's changes, but the district plans to address their return to school plan before fall break.
The school district is also urging families to be responsible from now through fall break, which lasts from October 5 through 9, saying the county does not want to revert back to the previous hybrid schedule.
Last week, the district reported 12 new cases in students and less than five staff members. The latest COVID-19 numbers for Wilson County Schools will be submitted on Monday.
