Moore County High School and Middle School Parents,
The faculty and staff of MCHS/MS are looking forward to the beginning of a new academic year. We will begin school on Monday, August 3 for orientation from 8:00 until 10:00. Please read the following information so you are prepared for this upcoming school year.
Before your student arrives on August 3rd, please ensure that you register online through our website at www.moorecountyschools.net and find the link to our school. If you don’t have internet access please contact us at 931-759-4231. If you are choosing virtual learning, make sure the application is completed as soon as possible. If virtual learning is your path, you should have chosen between the three orientation dates on the application.
Our goal is student learning. We want to keep school as close to normal as possible; however, we will be following a few different procedures to lower the risks of COVID-19. We will supply masks for students and cleaning materials for classrooms. Masks will be provided for students and a choice if they wear it or not. The list below is not exhaustive, it contains procedures for this year.
- Student’s temperatures will be checked daily as they enter the building. Students with an elevated temperature (100.4 or higher) will be assessed and sent home as needed.
- Students that meet the above criteria during the school day will be taken to an isolated room and assessed and sent home if needed.
- Desks, technology equipment, and other shared items will be disinfected. Students will be required to wipe the desks down after they have been sprayed with disinfectant by the teacher.
- Students will be sent to different locations in the morning to reduce congestion in one area.
- Students will eat lunch in the cafeteria and the auxiliary gym to reduce numbers and congestion.
- Class changes will be staggered to keep numbers down in the hallways.
- Athletics will follow additional TSSAA guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Masks will be recommended but not required.
- Water bottles are recommended.
Please understand that procedures may change throughout this process as we receive guidance from the Tennessee Department of Education, Local Health organizations and the CDC.
We understand that not all families in Moore County have sufficient internet access in their homes. To help our families with this we are increasing our WiFi signal at Lynchburg Elementary School so that you can connect to the internet from the front parking lot of LES.
While there won’t be a password required to connect, please remember that we are monitoring the content in compliance with the federal law requirement. In addition, in order to follow the safe distance order, we are requiring you to stay in your vehicle while on campus. The Moore County Sheriff's Department will be monitoring the campus to ensure security and safety.
