Press Release Update 2020-2021 School Year at TA Dugger Junior High

Posted On: Tuesday, November 17, 2020



Press Release Today at 4:30 pm                                                                    
November 17, 2020

Due to the rising number of positive COVID cases within our community, students on the Traditional
Learning Track at TA Dugger Junior High will return to a hybrid schedule beginning this Thursday,
November 19, through Thanksgiving break. This DOES NOT impact students on the Distance Learning
Track and DOES NOT apply to any of the elementary schools.
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  the remainder of this week:
•    All students will be virtual on Wednesday, November 18.
•    TAD students in Cohort A will attend school on Thursday, November 19, and be virtual on Friday,
November 20.
•    TAD students in Cohort B will be virtual on Thursday, November 19, and attend school in-person
on Friday, November 20.
For next week:
•    TAD students in Cohort A will attend school in-person on Monday, November 23 and virtually on
Tuesday, November 24.
•    TAD students in Cohort B will attend school virtually on Monday, November 23 and in-person on
Tuesday, November 24.

Again, this change only applies to students at TA Dugger Junior High.  All Elizabethton City
elementary 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 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.
