Weekly News for the Week of May 3, 2021

Tusculum View Mission Statement

Tusculum View has a heart for ALL kids by providing engaging opportunities to achieve excellence.

Good afternoon Tiger families,

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We will begin TCAP testing for grades 3-5 this Tuesday, May 4th. Students need to plan on getting in bed early and eating a good breakfast each morning. Schedules for drop off and pick up have been sent to EDGE families. If you have any questions, please reach out to the school at 639.2751.

Mr. Starnes and our school system strive to keep the safety of our students and staff at the forefront of our decision making. COVID has presented many challenges to keeping schools open and having safety protocols in place that prevent the spread of the virus. The safety of students and staff will remain at the forefront of our decision making process. Please see Mr. Starnes announcement below.

This is Steve Starnes, Director of Greeneville City Schools. As communicated in the GCS Framework for Safe Return to School, it was stated that we would be responsive to the current conditions in relation to the pandemic. As conditions have improved within the community, the decision has been made to make masks optional when students are outdoors. The mask requirement will remain in effect indoors at this time. We will continue to monitor conditions and make changes as warranted. Thank you for your support of Greeneville City Schools.

I hope each of you has a great week!

Dr. Luttrell
