District closed Dec. 10-11 due to illness

The Cheatham County School District will be closed Tuesday, Dec. 10 and Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Absences have been closely tracked for both students and staff, and flu and stomach virus illnesses have caused a concern.

While our schools are closed, our custodial team will be cleaning and disinfecting all buildings.

Therefore, no one will be allowed in the schools. Our daycares will be closed both days, and all after-school and extracurricular activities such as sporting events will not be held.

The Centers for Disease Control reports that the flu is now being considered widespread in Tennessee, and the flu has started a bit earlier and more aggressively than it does this time of year.

While we are closed, we encourage parents and guardians to use this time to clean their children’s personal items such as backpacks, jackets and lunchboxes.
