GHS SchoolCast message 4-24-20.

On Wednesday, April 15, Governor Lee called on all public schools in Tennessee to remain closed for the remainder of the academic year. Greeneville City Schools will follow this recommendation and remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

On the advice of public health officials and in the interest of the health and safety of students and coaches, all athletic activity will remain suspended at this time. This suspension will include scrimmages, practices, organized workouts, tryouts, and conditioning. We will continue to monitor the situation and consult with health officials to determine when restrictions may be eased or lifted.

All playgrounds, ballfields, and stadiums on school property, as well as school parking lots to use for recreational purposes, will remain closed until further notice. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

After careful thought and deliberation among system, school, and health officials, the decision has been made that the Greeneville High School commencement ceremony originally scheduled for Friday, May 22, 2020 has been rescheduled to Saturday, August 1, 2020 at 10 AM.

 We hope this date will allow enough time for restrictions to be lifted and allow a traditional graduation ceremony to be held.  If not, alternative plans to honor our graduates on the same date and time are being organized.  Based on restrictions in place at the time along with data and guidance from state and local public health officials, a decision will be made on July 20 regarding the type of ceremony to be held.

While this is not the way we had planned to celebrate our graduates, we believe the delayed graduation date will allow a greater opportunity to honor the Class of 2020 and recognize this milestone in the lives of students and families.

Additionally, a Virtual Senior Showcase program will be broadcast/livestreamed on Thursday, May 21 and a GHS Senior Banquet is being planned for Thursday, July 30, if health restrictions in place at that time allow. Details will be shared in the coming days about these events, and that information that will need to be returned/responded to in a timely manner.

 

Plans are presently being developed to distribute student items such as things left in lockers, lockerrooms, classrooms, Senior Stoles, Medals and cords as well as the opportunity to return Items that students may have at home such as calculators, uniforms, instruments, and text or library books, etc. Please be looking and listening for these updates.
