This is Steve Starnes, Director of Greeneville City Schools. I am contacting you this evening regarding our operating schedule for the remainder of the first semester.

As the pandemic conditions within our community and schools continues to evolve, it may become necessary to alter the operating schedule for a classroom, a grade level, a school, or the district.  These decisions will be made after evaluating Greene County COVID-19 data and consulting with the local and regional health departments.

A reminder about the week of Thanksgiving, “A” Group students will attend in-person on Monday and will be virtual on Tuesday. “B” Group students will be virtual on Monday and in-person on Tuesday. Schools will be closed Wednesday through Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday.
