Beginning of the Year Packets/Materials/Device Pick-up Schedule

Thank you for your patience and continued support as we begin the 2020-2021 school year. As we prepare for the opening of school, I realize many of you continue to have questions about the upcoming year. In the coming days I will be releasing an informational video regarding changes at Cherokee for when we return to in-person learning. Additionally, below is a schedule for picking up materials and a device if you need one for this time of remote learning. Please continue to monitor the Johnson City Schools and Cherokee webpage and expect communication from your child’s teacher through either an email or phone call next week.

Thank you and please do not hesitate to call the school or send me an email if you have additional questions.

Please enter through the Lone Oak Rd entrance and come by the front of the school. School personnel will ask for your child’s name, grade level, and whether or not a device is needed. You will then be directed to the pick-up circle where we will provide you with a beginning of the year packet, any needed materials from your child’s teacher(s), and a device if needed.

Tardies, Early Dismissal

Parents must sign students in when tardy and out when leaving school early. After three unexcused tardies, students will serve time missed at his/her teacher's discretion.
