  • Congratulations Hannah Hayles 

    Congratulations to Hannah Hayles for her Student Documentary entitled “If Not Us: The Rights and Responsibilities of America during Segregation” who earned second place at the Tennessee History Day competition.  She is a Freshman at Karns this year and attended Northwest last year where she worked with another student to produce this documentary.  We are very proud of this young lady.

  • TRAFFIC ALERT affecting Bus Route 146:
    Temporary Road Closure will affect Bus Route 146 and others travelling to/from school in this area. Please be advised that two roads will be closed to all traffic as of 9:00 a.m., Tuesday morning, September 2, 2014; 1) McKamey Road between Ball Camp Pike and Western Avenue and 2) Matlock Road at the intersection of Ball Camp Pike. All traffic in this area will need to take alternate routes to intersect with Western Avenue. Routes which remain open are Goldenrod Circle and John May Road. The anticipated closure time is two weeks on the Matlock Road closure and four to six weeks on the McKamey Road closure. Because buses will not be able to travel through these sections of road they will have to find alternate ways to get around the road closures. Thus buses might be a few minutes late servicing some of their bus stops both morning and afternoon.
