Earlier Tuesday in his daily COVID-19 press conference, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee issued a statement recommending schools remain closed through April 24.
Bradley County and Cleveland City Schools will adhere to this recommendation and schools will remain closed. All school-related activities that were scheduled through this date will be canceled or postponed. Individual schools will make announcements concerning events, as needed.
Officials said, "We are in the midst of extremely trying times and know that our seniors are anxious when thinking about events such as graduation and prom. Please know that both systems are fully committed to ensuring our seniors have a true sense of completion from high school, complete with special senior moments. We are committed to making sure these events take place, even if dates must be moved. Thank you for your continued patience."
As the situation continues to evolve, the community will be updated as decisions are made.
