  • COVID-19 Updates for Families and Staff of Obion County Schools
    Updated October 19, 2020

    Obion County Schools will continue distance learning on Fridays for all students UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Those students who are currently participating in regular in-person classes will continue to have in-person classes Monday through Thursday with distance learning on Fridays. Those students participating in full-time distance learning will continue to have daily assignments available online or through paper packets. Packets will still be available for pickup and drop off on Mondays. No new students will be allowed to enroll in full-time distance learning without a doctor’s statement or without a quarantine order from the Department of Health or School.

    School Meals Update

    The USDA has extended the waivers that allow us to offer meals at no charge to children under the age of 18 regardless of their enrollment in Obion County Schools. Therefore, we will continue to offer both breakfast and lunch at no charge to all children in Obion County who are 18 years old and younger through the end of the 2020-2021 school year.
    Students who are enrolled in our system as distance learners, as well as children through the age of 18 in the county who are not enrolled in Obion County Schools can pick up meals daily at any school between 12:00 and 12:30. 
    Children must be present at pick up to receive the meals.
    Students who are ‘in person learners’ in our schools will also receive meals at no cost.
