SELMER, Tenn. — All McNairy County in-person students in grades preK-5th grade will be attending school four days a week beginning Monday.

McNairy County Director of Schools Greg Martin announced Tuesday the plan was to return as many students to the classroom as possible and as safely as possible.

There will be no school on Fridays as the school district dedicates those days for teachers to make contact and catch up with reconnect students.

McNairy’s students in grades 6th-12th will continue on alternating schedules through Oct. 9, said Martin.

Martin said he hopes all in-person students PreK-12 will begin attending school four days a week on Tuesday, Oct. 20. This will be one week after fall break.

“We will be observing CDC guidelines and state recommendations as we return to in-person learning for all of our students,” said Martin.

“We do have plans should situations arise where we need to limit capacity going forward,” Martin commented. “We are confident in our plan as we work to get to a more traditional school experience.”
