This past spring, your student took the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) test, so that we can better understand your student’s progress toward grade level learning expectations. A printed copy of your student’s state score report(s) will be sent home within the first two weeks of school. We know there is no one more important in a student’s education than parents and families, and one way we can better serve you is to ensure that you are equipped with complete information about your student’s academic performance in the four core subjects: math, ELA, science, and social studies.

COVID continues to be a concern in our community and schools. The following protocols are in place for the 2022-2023 school year to address COVID and school attendance:
A student that is at school and is symptomatic with a fever will be sent home and given 2 days of excused absences by the school nurse. If the child is not better after the two days, he/she will be required to be tested for COVID. This can be done in the doctor’s office or by the school nurse. If the test is completed by a doctor, the school nurse MUST have verification from the doctor that the student tested positive. This can be in the form of a doctor’s excuse stating that the child has tested positive. If the test is positive, the student will be given three more days of excused absences. (This will be a total of five excused absences.) If the test is negative, the student must return to school. If the child does not return to school, the absences will be counted as unexcused. Any further missed days after the two-day period without a doctor’s excuse will be counted as unexcused absences.
State law now requires us to post the number of spaces available in each school by grade for the District’s open enrollment period. A reasonable number of seats must first be reserved for students who move into that school zone and students who have a parent/guardian employed at that school. During this time, a parent/guardian may request that his/her child attend a school within the district other than the one to which the child is zoned.
Below is the information on the Open Enrollment spaces available at each school by grade level for those student who do not live in that district. The Open Enrollment Period for the 2022-2023 school year will be from 7-18-2022 to 8-12-2022. Please contact Angie Wills, Elementary Supervisor, at 423-727-2640 if you would like for your child to enroll in a school that is outside of your district. Once accepted, the student shall provide his/her own transportation to and from school. The student must maintain satisfactory attendance, behavior, and effort to remain in the new school.

The Johnson County Health Department and the Johnson County School System have partnered to provide seasonal influenza (flu) vaccinations at your child's school. If your child is uninsured, there is no cost to you for the flu vaccine. If your child is covered by insurance, including TennCare and private insurance, the County Health Department will file a claim with the insurance plan and receive reimbursement directly from the insurance plan . There is no out of pocket cost to you for the flu vaccines provided during this school flu vaccination clinic.
Health Department nurses will vaccinate children and school staff using the injectable (shot) flu vaccine. Clinics will begin as soon as the vaccine arrives at the health department (usually middle to late fall).
If you would like for your child to receive flu vaccine, please complete the following consent form. Be sure to sign the form electronically as this will be your permission for your student to receive the vaccine. You must fill out a separate consent form for each student you would like to receive the vaccine. If at a later date you change your mind and do not wish for your child to receive flu vaccine at the school, please notify the Johnson County Health Department at 423-727-9731 prior to the clinic date. This service to the students and staff is being done to decrease the impact of seasonal flu in our communities and to decrease school absenteeism.
