Flu Will Close Schools for a Third Day

Cannon County Schools will be closed on Friday, November 4th, 2022 due to Illness.  Students will return to Class on Monday, November 7th, 2022.  These closures are due to illness, specifically flu and “flu-like symptoms” at multiple schools in Cannon County with students and staff in all Cannon County Schools.

Director of Cannon County Schools, Mr. William Freddy Curtis stated, “There continues to be an up-tick in the number of cases of flu and ‘flu-like symptoms’ with students and staff at ALL our Cannon County Schools this week.  We have been informed by local Health Providers and the Tennessee Department of Health regarding this situation. Cannon County High School has been greatly impacted by illness this week.

Curtis continued, “Principals are continuing to have their custodians deep clean our schools during this time off.  This additional day will allow time for possible exposures and cases to diminish in Cannon County. November 4th, 2022 will be Inclement Weather Day Number 1 for Cannon County Schools for the 2022-2023 School Year. We will also have 2 Virtual Days that could possibly be utilized in the Spring Semester that are allowed under legislation passed last year. Students will return to school on Monday, November 7th, 2022. Middle School Basketball Games on Friday, November 3rd, 2022, and the CCHS Football Playoff Game at Loudon County will be played. Athletic practices will be allowed to proceed with precautions and illness protocols in place. We appreciate all our parents/guardians and our entire community with their understanding during this time of increased illness.”
