First Day Of School For Mid-State Counties
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Thursday was the first day back to school for some mid-state students, including in Davidson County.
Metro Nashville Public Schools had a half day for all students. Officials said they have a half day for the first day of school because hundreds of students who are not registered or immunized show up. The half day allows them to place unregistered students, and pass out textbooks and materials.
Students who are registered meet their teachers, review school and classroom rules and receive some materials.
Friday is an in-service day for teachers, and students will report back for their first full day on Monday.
Other counties that started Thursday are Dickson, Trousdale, and Wilson. Maury County schools will be back in session Friday.
On Monday, Bedford, Hickman, Smith, and Sumner Counties will head back to school, with Robertson County students back on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Franklin Special School District and Montgomery County school will start, and on Thursday, Rutherford County.
Nearly all districts will be back in session by next Friday, including Williamson County.
Cheatham County Schools will not start back until August 13.
