Tipton County Schools - COVID-19 (March 13, 2020)

In collaboration with many of our surrounding school systems, Tipton County Schools will take an opportunity to thoroughly deep clean all of our facilities and buses over the course of the next two weeks. As a result, all Tipton County Schools will be closed beginning Monday, March 16th, through the end of Spring Break. This closure includes classes, extracurricular activities, and sporting events as well as School-Aged ChildCare.

We know this may be a hardship for some families, and we sincerely appreciate your support and understanding. This decision was not made without an abundance of input from local health representatives.

Please reference specific Health Department and CDC guidelines as posted on our TCS webpage for information and safety precautions.

TCS Message on COVID-19 (March 12, 2020)

Our Superintendent, Dr. Combs, has communicated with the six municipal Shelby County superintendents in Arlington, Bartlett, Collierville, Germantown, Lakeland, and Millington who are all aware of the decision of Shelby County Schools to cancel classes starting Friday, March 13th, through March 30th.

At this time, neither the Tipton County Health Department nor the Tennessee Department of Education have made recommendations to close schools to contain the spread of the coronavirus or COVID-19.

As is true with the municipal schools in Shelby, Lauderdale, Haywood, Jackson-Madison, Fayette, and other surrounding schools districts, there are no plans to close Tipton County Schools at this time, though the situation is fluid and we will make decisions on school closures as new information emerges.

We will continue to consult with the Tipton County Health Department and the Tennessee Department of Education to make decisions that are in the best interest of our students and staff.
