COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR FAMILIES AND STUDENTS

Health Guidelines | Distance Learning | Free Internet | Meal Access | Reopening Plans

KIPP Nashville will begin phasing students back into in-person learning. We will be welcoming back students in-person who chose that option in the Semester 2 family preference survey. 

Phase-in plan:

  • Feb. 23 (Tuesday):  K – 1
  • Feb. 25 (Thursday):  2 – 4
  • March 1 (Monday):  5 and 9
  • March 2 (Tuesday):  High school ACT testing
  • March 22 (Monday):  6 – 8 and 10 – 12 

Students who did not choose in-person learning will continue with virtual learning. We are committed to providing the same level of high-quality instruction to our online learners as we have been over these last months.

When we reopen, we will continue to operate with stringent safety protocols in place, protocols that allowed us to safely operate last November when some of our students returned to school buildings. 

Schools will share specific details about schedules, along with reminders about the safety protocols and what to expect on your student’s first day back inside the building.

See the “Family Communications and Updates” section just below for more updates and be sure to follow KIPP Nashville’s Facebook and Instagram pages for ongoing updates.

For more information about reopening, click HERE to visit the “Reopening” section of our web site. We will also post up to date information on KIPP Nashville’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.

Does the work continue? Yes, in a new way.

  • This is a possibility, and we are waiting on guidance from the Tennessee Department of Education and Metro Nashville Public Schools. The state legislature passed a bill waiving the 180 instructional day requirement. We will update all our families as soon as we have more information.

  • The school will reach back out to you with a date/time for pickup of all remaining materials. Please do not attempt to stop by the school before that time.

  • Our team is working on a plan for continued remote learning should that be necessary. These plans would be communicated through school principals and leadership teams to families and students.

  • It is likely grades for the year will be based off of Q1, Q2 and Q3 and not include Q4 grades. We are waiting on guidance from the Tennessee Department of Education and Metro Nashville Public Schools.

  • We are currently waiting on guidance from the State Board and MNPS on promotion requirements. We are prioritizing working with our seniors at this time to ensure they have the credits they need to graduate on time.

  • We are waiting on guidance from the Tennessee Department of Education and Metro Nashville Public Schools.

  • Reach out to the Director of Operations or Principal at your school.

  • Right now, online learning assignments are optional and not being graded. Teachers are still providing feedback to students on all turned in assignments. These assignments and feedback will help prevent learning loss during these weeks of closure.

  • The College Board has announced that all AP assessments will be taken at home. All Collegiate students should now have Chromebooks and will be able to take the exams online. You’ll also have the option to write your responses by hand and submit a photo. The College Board will support students through exam day with testing date options and free resources. For more information and a schedule of exam dates, visit https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/students

  • We are committed to providing services to students during this period. These services include regular check-ins with a learning specialist, small group lessons via Zoom, and providing differentiated assignments. Students should also be receiving Speech and Language, OT, and PT services through our provider, Project Play. If you have a student who receives any of these services and you have not heard from Project Play, please contact your child’s teacher.

  • All four KIPP Nashville campuses are distributing free breakfast and lunch meals during weekdays. Please see the “food resources” section of this web page for specific dates and pickup times.
