School Closure for Friday, January 28, 2022

  • January 27, 2022

    From the Office of the Superintendent

    Echols Middle School will be closed to students on Friday, January 28, 2022.

    No other TCSS schools are impacted by this closure, and students should report to school as normal at all other schools.

    The temporary closure at Echols is due to a high number of faculty absences and lack of substitutes. While other schools are experiencing the same concerns, they are still able to operate at current staffing levels. Echols will reopen to students as soon as possible, when staffing returns to a level at which the schools can be operated. Families at Echols will be contacted Sunday, with an update on plans for Monday.

    Echols students will receive information from their teachers about assignments to complete on Friday, January 28. This information will be posted in Schoology. If you have any questions, please contact the school and ask to speak with an administrator. We thank our families for your patience and cooperation during this time.

    We encourage our families to keep practicing healthy habits and good hygiene, to fight the spread of COVID-19, as well as illnesses like cold and flu.
