  • A Message from Superintendent Brett Stanton


    Dear Parents & Guardians:

    Our Child Nutrition Program, school staff and members of PTO's will be working with community partners to assist families with food insecurities by implementing the following schedule:

    Food pick-up for families with students attending Guntersville High School or Guntersville Middle School will be held at Guntersville High School on Monday, March 16th (1-3 p.m.) and Wednesday, March 18th (9-11 a.m.)

    Food pick-up for families with students attending Cherokee Elementary School or Guntersville Elementary School will be held at Guntersville Elementary School on Wednesday, March 18th (8-10 a.m.)    

    By the end of the day on Monday, March 16th a list of resources your child can access to enrich their learning at home during our current school system closure (March 16th - April 3rd) will be provided on our school system website.  Students are NOT required to complete assignments through April 3rd, but we encourage students to access the resources to keep their minds engaged. If schools are closed beyond April 3rd, we will communicate our plan for instruction moving forward. 

    While schools have a role in this rapidly changing situation, we also look to our community to
    share in the responsibility to keep our children and community healthy. If families are traveling
    to affected areas, we ask they follow the guidance given by local, state, and federal officials as to
    recommended precautions before returning to school. Families with concerns about travel
    plans over Spring Break should maintain communication with their principal.

    Based on current information, health officials are recommending local communities and schools
    take the same steps to protect against the Coronavirus that help prevent the spread of
    everyday illnesses like the common cold or flu:

    • Stay home when sick.
    • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
    • If soap and water is not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Cover the mouth and nose with the inside of the elbow when sneezing or coughing.
    • Wash hands after coughing, sneezing, or blowing the nose.
    • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects such as toys and doorknobs.
    • We ask for your patience and understanding as we are all working with the best of intentions
      and with available information we have at this time. We will provide updates as necessary via
      our mass phone communication system and email blasts.


    In advance, thanks for your understanding regarding this matter.


    Sincerely,

    Brett Stanton
