July Update

Getting Ready

I hope you all have had a great summer and are keeping yourself well. We are busy working on plans to welcome our sweet students back in the fall. The Board approved a new calendar for the upcoming school year. It has students beginning school on August 13th. Blount County School will also give parents two different options for their children to participate in the school setting.


  • Option 1 is Blended Learning: Students will attend class on campus Tuesday through Friday and have a remote learning assignment to complete off campus on Monday.
  • Option 2 is Remote Learning: Students will be involved in remote learning Tuesday through Friday and will be required to participate in assessments, progress monitoring and tutoring either in person through appointment or through remote learning if possible.

Plans to ensure the safety of both staff and students is currently underway. As information becomes available it will be shared with you as soon as possible. Please know all plans are subject to change since this is a very fluid situation.
