School Board Member Appreciation Week in Tennessee is January 23-29. Join the Meigs County Board of Education in honoring the men and women who serve on the local school board. Board members are “Building the Future.” The dedication of Meigs County School board members to students and the community makes our school places where all children can discover their interests and prepare for their future.

Celebrate local board members during School Board Member Appreciation Week. They are the voice of

schools in the community, and the community’s voice in building the future for our students.

Thank a school board member today!

As the pandemic of COVID 19 continues to impact all aspects of society, the Meigs County School system is focused on how to best address these concerns and continue to educate students and keep them safe. We have limited ability, as a school system, to address these health issues compared to the previous school year. Meigs County presently has over 20 percent of our student population out of school due to direct or indirect involvement with Covid-19. We are highly encouraging students to wear masks. We now are implementing a mask mandate for all teachers and staff as we did last year (effective immediately). That mandate is in effect when a teacher or staff is within six feet of another person. It is known that masks reduce the transmission of this virus. If students are wearing masks appropriately during close contact with a positive case, where all parties are masked, the non-positive student will not need to quarantine (unless they have symptoms). Mask wearing means we stay in school.

The mission of United Way is to unite our community’s resources to give everyone the opportunity for a good quality of life, through EDUCATION, STABILITY IN THE FAMILY & GOOD HEALTH. They partner and work closely with over twenty nonprofit organization’s in our community to ensure that we are doing everything we can locally to find long-term solutions to our communities most complex and pressing needs.
