Following suit with one of the high schools in the district, all of McMinn County Schools will operate on a virtual schedule for the next two school days.
According to Director of Schools Lee Parkison, “out of an abundance of caution due to a significant rise in the number of students and staff being ill or quarantined, all McMinn County Schools will operate on a virtual schedule on Monday, Nov. 23, and Tuesday, Nov. 24.”
He added that these days will be regular instruction days – virtual instruction or paper packets for students.
All employees will report in-person, he noted.
On Thursday, it was announced that McMinn County High School would operate virtually Friday, Monday and Tuesday due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Now, all MCS institutions are going virtual until the Thanksgiving holiday.
