District Closes Schools Due to Staff Shortages


August 25, 2021


Due to staff shortages, the Cheatham County School District will be closed on Thursday, Aug. 26 and Friday, Aug. 27.

This closure includes the district's daycares.

They will take this time to deep clean the school buildings and use an antiviral mist in all of the buildings and on the school buses.

Athletic games on both days will continued to be played as long as players-teams aren’t on quarantine.

"Due to COVID-19, we strongly encourage our families to have their child(ren) to wear a mask to school and take other precautionary measures such as getting the vaccine if the child is old enough," reads a Facebook post made by the district.

These two days will be used as stockpile days or inclement weather days. The district currently has 13 stockpile days built into their school calendar.

The Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Education announced today that districts will be able to increase the number of stockpile days this year.
