COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR FAMILIES AND STUDENTS

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

IMPORTANT: All KIPP Nashville schools are closed through the remainder of the school year. Updates will be sent to families via text/phone/emails and posted here. We will also post up to date information on KIPP Nashville’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.

The well-being of KIPP students and staff is our top priority. In order to do our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19 (“coronavirus”), all KIPP Nashville schools will be closed through the remainder of the school year. We understand closing schools will have a tremendous impact on everyone’s lives, but we need to do what is best for the health and safety of our students and staff.

As we enter the coming weeks without traditional school, we are asking you to partner with us to continue supporting the academic growth and development of your student, while simultaneously preventing as much learning loss as possible. Please see the “Distance Learning” section of this web page for grade level instructions.

Distance Learning (High School)

As of April 6, Collegiate has transitioned to uploading daily learning resources on Google Classroom. All students in 9th through 12th grade should log in to their teacher’s individual Google Classroom pages in order to access the videos, materials, and assignments. Please refer to the below course schedule to review which classes will post new content on each day of the week. Additionally, please review the sample student schedule to help your student create strong habits as they engage with remote learning resources while school is closed.

Meal Access

Starting Monday, June 1, we will no longer be offering to-go meal pickups at our Ewing Park campus. We will continue to offer free, to-go breakfast and lunch meal pickups at our other three campuses through Friday, June 26. Please check the schedule below for specific dates and times for each location. Here is the schedule:

  • KIPP Kirkpatrick Elementary School (1000 Sevier St., 37206) | Monday and Thursday from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
  • KIPP Antioch Campus (3655 Murfreesboro Pike, 37013) | Wednesday from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
  • KIPP Highland Heights Campus (123 Douglas Ave., 37207) | Tuesday and Friday from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.

At each distribution, we are providing grab-and-go, pre-packaged meals available for drive-through pickup, with the exception of KIPP Kirkpatrick, where pickup is available by walking up to the school.

  • Each package will contain 3 days’ worth of meals, with a separate bag for each day containing both breakfast and lunch. Each package will contain 3 breakfasts and 3 lunches.
  • A limited quantity of meals will be available at each distribution. Once all meals have been distributed, we will not have the ability to provide more meals that day.

Parents and guardians may now pick up these meals for their children – children do not need to be present. This new rule is in effect until June 30, or until the federal public health emergency expires, whichever happens first. We will continue to update this site with new information.

Other Options

Starting Monday, March 23, Metro Schools will be offering free breakfast and lunch meals to children in Nashville at locations throughout Davidson County on weekdays. Meals will be available for drive-through pickup to parents and guardians – children do not need to be present to collect the meals. Breakfast and lunch will be available for pickup from 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Second Harvest Food Bank will be operating out of additional community-based sites, and those in need should call 615-329-3491 or 2-1-1 for more information.

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.

  • 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.

  • Please email info@kippnashville.org, and we will put you in touch with the right person to help.
