Quarter 2 Remote Learning Renewal Application

August 28, 2020

Now that Coffee County Schools has started the school year, the document titled Pathway to Re-entry 2020-2021 has served its purpose and new guidance is necessary.  When the three school districts in Coffee County developed the Pathway, the most exact information available on the spread of COVID-19 was the active case rate in Coffee County.  We are now able to monitor cases and quarantines in our schools in real time.  For this reason, Coffee County Schools will no longer be using the active case rate for the county as a number to make decisions about the district schedule.  We will now be using district-level information related to COVID-19 to make decisions at the district, school, grade, or potentially classroom level.

The current plan is to maintain the A/B hybrid schedule through September 4.  After Labor Day, all students except those on parent-choice virtual or students who are quarantined and isolated, should be able to return to their schools four days each week, Monday through Thursday.  Friday will remain a distance learning day for all students through fall break.  Our community is not close to being finished with this pandemic and there remains a risk that groups of students will need to be placed on distance learning. These Fridays will ensure that teachers and students are prepared for distance-learning possibilities. There are not any current plans to return to the A/B hybrid schedule after Labor Day.

Procedures will remain in place at each school to help ensure the health and safety of our school family.

  • Masks must be worn according to the terms of the board-issued mask requirement

  • Daily temperature checks

  • Frequent handwashing and hand sanitizing

  • Social distancing practices when feasible

  • Strategic movement of students

  • Cleaning and disinfecting commonly touched surfaces and objects throughout the day

We will continue to partner with the Tennessee Department of Health as the conditions around COVID-19 continually change.


Thank you,

Charles Lawson

Director, Coffee County Schools



At the August 10 board meeting, the Coffee County School Board approved a statement that requires the use of masks in district facilities.  Every effort is being made to provide a safe learning environment for our students and staff.  Should a parent feel that their child cannot attend school under this requirement, the district will try to accommodate those students under the parent-choice virtual option.  Applications for the virtual option can be obtained at the Coffee County Schools central office in the Administrative Plaza.  Coffee County Schools requests continued patience from our families and our community as we begin our school year in a safe and effective manner.

Masks will be required of all employees, students, and visitors under the following conditions:

  1. Masks shall be worn in all areas, including transportation, when individuals are not separated by at least six feet. 

  2. If distancing is greater than six feet, the use of masks is at the discretion of school system personnel (ex: bus drivers, teachers, administration). 

  3. Documentation will be required for mask medical exemptions. 

  4. Mask use during extracurricular activities will be under the guidance of the governing body, such as TSSAA.

Mask mandate to take effect on August 12, 2020. The mask guidelines will be reviewed on a regular basis and continuance will be at the discretion of the Director of Schools. 

Thank you,
Charles Lawson
Director, Coffee County Schools

Parent Survey - Tennessee School Climate Survey

We are working to improve conditions for learning in our schools. Students will learn more in a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment. We would very much appreciate your help by completing the short parent survey.  Your perceptions about your child's school will help us identify what we are doing well, and what we need to do better.  The survey is anonymous. No one will know which answers come from you, and it will not be possible to connect your answers to your child in any way. 
The parent survey link for Coffee County Schools can be found:
If you have questions about completing this survey, please contact Zachary Stone with the Tennessee Department of Education at (615) 532-9702, or Carrie Davis, Coordinator of Family Resource, Coffee County Schools, (931) 222-1066.
