Corona Virus Update in CMCSS

Over the past few weeks, a Communicable Disease Team (CDT) comprised of leaders from CMCSS and the Montgomery County Health Department have been meeting regularly to review the latest guidance from the CDC, monitor the health and attendance of CMCSS students and employees, and make recommendations to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases.

While the district has been implementing proactive measures to reduce the spread of illness, after reviewing the latest guidance, the CDT has made additional recommendations that will be communicated to parents and guardians via SchoolMessenger, video, social media, website, and local media today, Thursday, March 12.
All after school activities in CMCSS are cancelled today, March 12. Please refer to your email, the CMCSS website, and CMCSS social media
Travel – effective immediately, all school- or district-sponsored travel on for-hire transportation (charter bus, planes, etc.) for students and employees will be suspended through April 8.
The district will work with schools to make every reasonable legal effort to seek refunds for cancelled trips to the extent refunds are not extended upon the school’s cancellation. If costs are not refunded, the district will work with schools and parents to make efforts to provide reimbursements.
Trips via CMCSS transportation will continue to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for approval. Travel will not be permitted to schools, districts, or other venues where there are school closures. Further guidance will be provided should there be any school or district closures.
The CDT will continue to monitor best practices and will provide further guidance ahead of April 8.

COVID-19 information is continuing to evolve as the experts learn more about this disease. We know there is a lot of fear and anxiety around this pandemic, and we assure you the CDT is continuously monitoring this situation. While education is important, the health and well-being of our students and staff are far more significant. We will continue to update you, and we welcome your questions and feedback.

Choir Recognition

This past Monday and Tuesday, our very own Logan Stewart (Senior, Bass 2 in Mainstream Choir) participated in the Middle Tennessee Vocal Association Choir rehearsals in Brentwood Tennessee. This concluded with a performance last night which was amazing! Over 3000 students from Middle Tennessee auditioned for this opportunity and Logan was one of 120 men selected not only for Mid-State Men’s Choir, but he is also going to be performing with the All-State Men’s choir in February where students from all over the state have auditioned to be accepted. Logan not only represents his school, but he also is the only student to make it into either Mid-State or All-State in the entire Montgomery County District. Acceptance into All-State means that he ranked in the top 40 of 120 accepted out of the 3000+ that auditioned. I am very proud of Logan and we are all expecting great things from him.

Another accomplishment comes from our very own Lacey Patterson (Soprano 1 in Mainstream Choir) who was accepted to sing in a 1000 voice choir that will be performing at the Ryman Auditorium with the Nashville Pops Orchestra and soloist Kathie Lee Gifford in their concert “1,000 Voices of Christmas”. This is an accomplishment that was awarded to her for her involvement in other community events such as the Welcome Home Veteran’s Wreath Laying Ceremony at Beachaven Winery and for her participation with the Middle Tennessee Vocal Association. Lacey has a BEAUTIFUL voice and we are lucky to have her with us representing Northwest High School at the Ryman Auditorium this coming Sunday, November 17th. This event will later be televised on national television sometime in December.
