Is your student interested in a Dual Enrollment Course?

Dual Enrollment or Early College Experience is the opportunity for students to earn not only high school credit but also college credit hours for college classes taken during their junior and senior years of high school. Students must qualify by having a 3.0 unweighted GPA, and they must have minimum subscores of 19 on the ACT. Likewise, the state of Tennessee provides the Dual Enrollment Grant to students to assist in paying for college tuition. The information for Dual Enrollment can be found at, Maryville High School, Classrooms, Dual Enrollment.

If your child is interested in taking DE classes, please complete the Application and Release forms that are below. Please see Mrs. Burchfield if you need additional information.

Clarifying Required Quarantine Times

As you know, the CDC and Tennessee Department of Health have recently made changes to quarantine time frames. Our Health Department has clarified the policies and procedures we are expected to follow. Here are the details you need to know for next semester:

  1. Close contact quarantine is now only 10 days, not 14.
  2. The 10 day quarantine requirement can be shortened with the following stipulations:
  • A student must receive a negative result from a PCR test, not a rapid test.
  • The test must be taken on Day 6 of the quarantine time frame or later.
  • The negative test allows a student to return to school on Day 8 of the quarantine time. Basically, a negative test will allow a student back two days sooner, depending on the length of time it takes to receive the test results.
  • Documentation of the negative test results will be required to re-enter school early and should be provided to the school nurse before a student attends classes.

We know that asking a student to quarantine impacts extracurricular obligations, work obligations, and family plans. Thank you for your continued support as we follow the TDOH guidelines this upcoming semester.
