On Wednesday, Henderson County Schools Transitional District Director Bob Lawson announced that all schools within the district would be switching to Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) starting Monday, Nov. 23.
According to the letter sent out by Lawson, the NTI will continue for the weeks of Nov. 23 and Nov. 30.
"Moving forward, our Hybrid model provides the best avenue of combined student and staff safety while at school," Lawson said in his letter. "As our staffing is affected by quarantines, we will use NTI when necessary."
Lawson also noted that childcare centers at Bend Gate, East Heights, and Thelma B Johnson Early Learning Center would remain open on Nov. 23 and Nov. 24, and the week of Nov. 30 (closed Nov. 25 - Nov. 27).
HCS's next mode of instruction will be announced on Wednesday, Dec. 2, by 4:00 p.m. According to Lawson, the district anticipates returning to its Hybrid Model on Monday, Dec. 7.
