We are proactively planning for the possibility of a return to in-person school. We don’t know yet whether we will be able to safely reopen, but we plan to share our intention with our families on October 1 and announce a tentative timeline of when grades K-8 could be phased in. We will announce a final decision on October 16. Our high school students will remain in distance learning for the remainder of this semester.
If the health data in our city shows it is safe to reopen, we will prioritize bringing in our youngest students first beginning with kindergarten the week of November 2.
Our reopening planning is built around choice. Families will have a choice about what is best for them and our staff members also have the option to opt into in-person school or remain teaching virtually. If we are able to safely reopen in person, we will continue to offer a distance learning program to everyone who has chosen to remain at home.
As you consider what is best for your family, we want to provide you with an overview of the safety measures we’re considering for in-person school. CLICK HERE to view our plans, and visit the “Health and Safety Protocols” section below for additional information.
As we continue on with the 2020-2021 school year, we can assure you of three things:
We’re so thankful for the resilience and support our families and staff have shown through this pandemic and we look forward to getting through this together.

Thanks to updated federal guidelines, all breakfast and lunch meals will now be offered at no cost to all families. This means that all children ages 18 or younger, regardless of their free/reduced/paid eligibility status is, may receive FREE meals from any KIPP Nashville or MNPS meal pick-up location. Parents/guardians may pick up meals without their children being present.
We also have a few updates about our on-campus distribution schedule. Starting Tuesday, September 8, the meal pickup schedule will be as follows:
Beginning Monday, August 10, we will also distribute meals with our buses. Click HERE to see to see a list of bus stops and times for pick up. Every route corresponds with a specific school/campus and is identified by color. You can use the search function to type in your address to locate the closest stop to your home. We will place KIPP Nashville signs at the bus food stop locations.
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.

We are looking at every aspect of our day, from arrival to lunch to PE and dismissal to ensure we are minimizing exposure and health risks. When we are able to open for in-person instruction, you can expect the following precautions to be taken:
We are committed to providing one-to-one technology. Every student will be assigned a Chromebook. We will also be providing mobile hotspots for families who need help with Internet access. Please reach out to your student’s school if you need one.
When we are able to reopen in person, we plan to run school busses in some capacity in a manner similar to pre-COVID operations. We will incorporate safety measures such as increased cleaning, opening windows to increase circulation, requiring all students to wear masks, and spacing students as much as possible.
KIPP Nashville schools are in distance learning through at least October 30. We will announce our tentative phased-in reopening schedule, beginning with kindergarten students, on October 1 and make a final decision on October 16. Students can access their online learning HERE. To log in, use your school email account that ends in @kippnash.org and school password.
