Due to the rising number of positive COVID cases within our community, students on the Traditional Learning Track at Elizabethton High School will return to a hybrid schedule beginning this Thursday, November 5, through Thanksgiving break. This does not impact students on the Distance Learning Track and DOES NOT apply to any of the elementary schools or TA Dugger.
Students with last names beginning with letters A – L will be in Cohort A, and students with last names starting with M – Z will be in Cohort B.
For this week, students in Cohort A will attend school on Thursday, November 5, and be virtual all other days. Students in Cohort B will attend school on Friday, November 6, and be virtual on all other days.
For the following two weeks, from November 9 – 20, Cohort A students will attend school in person on Mondays and Tuesday and virtually on Wednesdays through Fridays. Cohort B students will attend school virtually on Mondays through Wednesdays and in-person on Thursdays and Fridays.
During the week of Thanksgiving Break, Cohort A students will attend school in person on Monday, November 23, and virtually on Tuesday. Cohort B students will attend virtually on Monday and in-person on Tuesday, November 24.
Again, this change only applies to students at Elizabethton High School. All other Elizabethton City Schools will remain on the same 4-day schedule that has been in place.
All of this information and a calendar showing these dates will be published on ECS social media pages and available on the system web page at www.ecschools.net. We will continue to monitor the situation daily and will further update you if other changes become necessary. We want to encourage all members of the Cyclone Family to continue the practices of social distancing, mask-wearing, and frequent hand washing so that, as a community, we can combat the impacts of the COVID-19 virus. If you have further questions, please contact your child’s school.
