Special Message Following Tragic Bus Accident

“Our families and community suffered an unspeakable tragedy today, and our thoughts and prayers are with all of the families and staff members at Chilhowee Intermediate School and Sunnyview Primary School. We have decided that these two schools will not be in session on Wednesday, Dec. 3. We will, however, open the schools between 10 a.m.-2 p.m., so counselors can be available for students and families who need this support. Additionally, counselors will be available at other schools as needed.
“I want to thank all of our first responders and Knox County Schools staff who are working to help our community during this difficult time. We will make every effort to support the needs of all students and staff in the coming weeks.”
