Cannon County Schools has announced that certain Fridays in January, February, and March will be conducted as “Flex/Asynchronous Learning Days. Friday, January 29th, 2021; Friday, February 5th, 2021; Friday, February 26th, 2021; and Friday, March 26th, 2021 will be “Off-Campus” Days for most Cannon County Schools’ students.
Students that are failing classes will be required to attend on those days, and other students in our Life Skills / CDC classes will also be attending. Bus Service will also take place for those students required to attend, lunch will be served to those students in attendance, and limited ESP Services will also take place. Schools will inform those students that must attend on these days, however, most students will be learning from their homes. Assignments will be provided in multiple ways via Google Classroom and Packets on the “Flex/Asynchronous Days.”
Director of Cannon County Schools, Mr. William F. Curtis, stated, “I met with Supervisors and Principals today, January 14th, 2021, and they suggested possible dates that would work in our schedule. Some weeks were already four day weeks due to holidays – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – Monday, January 18th, 2021; Presidents’ Day – Monday, February 15th, 2021; and Professional Development Day – Tuesday, March 2nd, 2021. We are continuing to evaluate our COVID-19 response and teachers are in need of these ‘Flex / Asynchronous Days’ to work with failing students on a ‘one-on-one basis’ and to utilize these days for preparation and evaluation of learning. We have incredible educators that are working extremely hard, and these days will assist them in multiple ways. We continue our focus on the VISION of Cannon County Schools – ‘Engaged in Excellence EVERY Day and in EVERY Way!’ and OUR MISSION – ‘To create a Unified Environment That Will Provide Opportunities for ALL Students to Reach Their Full Potential.’ We sincerely appreciate our Parents/Guardians and their partnership with ALL our schools in Cannon County.”
