For the week of January 18-21, 2022, masks will be optional in the Knox County Public Schools.

If your child or anyone in your family begins to experience symptoms of COVID-19, please keep your student home, consult a healthcare provider, and notify the school office.  Also, if your child has tested positive or has been quarantined, state law requires that you contact your child’s school as soon as you receive the notification. Please know that the health, safety, and well-being of our school community remain our top priority. We will continue to follow sound protocols aligned with expert health guidance to ensure we are doing everything we can to protect everyone’s health.
