GALLATIN, Tenn. (WTVF) — Sumner County Schools announced the district will return to its full-time, traditional schedule beginning Monday.

The district said all elementary, middle and high school students will attend school five days a week until further notice.

“The district’s goal has always been to balance providing students with as much in-person instruction as possible while maintaining the health and safety of staff and students. We will continue to consider multiple factors when making our decisions. It is difficult for anyone to make long term projections during this pandemic, but our goal in each decision is to safely maintain continuity of instruction, consistency and routine for students, parents, and teachers,” the district wrote in part on Facebook.

Sumner County Schools said the schedule for elementary and CDC will not be impacted by this change. They will continue attending school five days a week until further notice.

Sumner Virtual Academy students will receive communication about any schedule changes from their teachers.
