Learning Loss Camps: Tennessee's Plan for Learning Loss
On January 22, 2021, the Tennessee General Assembly enacted the Tennessee Learning Loss Remediation and Student Acceleration Act (SB 7002/HB 7004) to address the learning loss of students due to COVID-19 related school closures. Through this new law, all school districts in Tennessee will be required to offer learning loss remediation summer programs for students in grades K-8, starting in summer 2021.

In Lincoln County, we will be offering a Summer Learning Camp for Students that are rising 1st-5th graders and a Summer Bridge Camp for rising 6th-8th graders. The summer camps will provide daily instruction in reading/language arts and mathematics plus activities in science/technology/the arts/physical education. Services include breakfast, lunch and transportation. The camps will run 8 AM to 3 PM four days per week. The state has set criteria for those eligible for the program. Additional information will be provided by your child's schools based on academic eligibility.

From the Principal

As we work our way through TCAP testing and prepare for the end of the year, I wanted to thank each one of you as parents and community members for everything you have done to help us make this school year happen. It's hard to imagine that this time last year, we weren't even having school and the possibility of us returning this past fall was up in the air. But through everything and with your support, we were able to open the doors in August and make school happen for students and our teachers. We could not have done it without you, Flintville Nation. Thank you.

Mrs. Terri's Tips

I would like to take this opportunity to let everyone know how much I appreciate your dedication and support this year. We are wrapping up our state TCAP testing and because of high attendance, our participation rate has definitely exceeded our minimum goal. Even though this school year has been full of ups and downs with sickness, quarantines, and virtual learning Flintville Nation has made it through because of the dedication and support of our students, teachers, parents, and community. I hope that the upcoming summer break gives everyone much-needed rest, relaxation, and family time that is well deserved!

Counselor's Corner

Getting enough sleep, maintaining a healthy diet, managing stress, exercising, making time to have fun, and maintaining good hygiene can help keep your child present at school while helping them enjoy it as well !

Healthy Habits

Daily healthy habits are helpful to prepare for all of the situations a child may encounter throughout the day: disruptions at home, concentrating, peer relations, studying, managing obstacles, and dealing with changes.


Watch for Signs of Anxiety and Stress

Homework, tests, social pressures—kids can face a lot of stressful situations every day. Research shows that stress and anxiety can have a negative impact on kids' health.

It's actually fairly common for kids to experience stress and anxiety.

It’s important for children to learn what helps them de-stress. For some kids this might mean writing in a journal, playing a board game, going for walk, talking to a trusted adult, or playing with friends.

Sleep

Getting enough sleep is a crucial part of staying healthy and functioning well in school. In fact, studies show that missing sleep can impact kids in a number of ways. Lack of sleep can lead to poor concentration, obesity, depression, and injuries.

Sleep also plays a role in how well students perform in school, too.

Getting adequate sleep also can prepare kids for the stresses they experience throughout the day. Make sure you establish a schedule and stick to a regular bedtime.

Even older kids can benefit from having a set bedtime. Keep the same bedtime schedule and routine.


Brain-Boosting Breakfast

Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day when it comes to school kids. A balanced breakfast of protein and complex carbohydrates has been shown to be important for brain function as well as for maintaining a steady level of energy throughout the day.


Studies show that eating breakfast has a positive effect on cognitive performance, especially when it comes to memory and attention.
