SCS Parents and Families,
We have been working diligently to provide all of our Sumner County Schools employees access to a free Covid-19 vaccination as quickly as possible.
We have received 1,800 vaccine doses from Hendersonville Medical Center and the Tennessee Department of Health to provide to our employees.
In order to manage the logistics necessary to provide the quantity of first and second dose vaccinations needed in single-day events, I will be scheduling distance/remote learning days for March 5, 2021 and April 1, 2021. All SCS students (Pre-K thru high school) will learn from home on those two dates. We wanted to provide as much notice to parents about these distance/remote learning days as possible to allow families time to make appropriate accommodations.
I am proud to say through a partnership with Sumner Regional Medical Center, we have already conducted two previous smaller clinics that provided over 1,400 vaccinations to our employees.
Parents are a critical part of our team and we appreciate your support and understanding to make this vaccination event possible.
Dr. Del Phillips III
Director of Schools
