Cherokee Elementary School is a Pre-K through 4th grade School located at the base of Buffalo Mountain within the Cherokee National Forest. We are part of the Johnson City Schools District. School starts at 8:15 AM and we dismiss at 3:15 PM.

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.


Parents should call the office when students are absent. Work may be picked up in the office. Please call by 9:00 am to give the teacher plenty of time to get the work together.
