MOORE COUNTY – Director of Schools Chad Moorehead recently received dozens of pages of Tennessee Department of Health guidance for fall school re-opening. And the recommendation are broad … a continuation of remote learning, staggered schedules, limited bus capacity, … they’re all on the table.

That’s why Director Moorehead recently posted the Schools COVID-19 Re-Entry Survey on the school system’s website. He’d like parent’s feedback before moving forward. The 12 question survey gauges not only local parent’s comfort level with sending their kids back to public schools, but also asks about virtual learning and a student’s access to reliable Internet.

On Thursday, Director Moorehead told The Lynchburg Times that he plans for local students to be back in Moore County classrooms by August as planned but he admitted the situation was fluid.

“We have a school board approved schedule in place and I’m going to do everything I can to stick to it,” he said. “The one variable I can’t control is the virus.”

Director Moorehead also said that he plans to post a second, more detailed survey in the coming weeks. Currently, the first full day of classes for Moore County students is August 5. The next Metro School Board meeting is scheduled to take place on Monday, July 13 at 6 p.m.•
