SCS says students may return to in-person classes in January


MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Shelby County Schools district leaders say they are planning for students to return to classrooms in phases, beginning in January.

Students in pre-K through 5th grade and those with special needs would return to in-person learning in early January, SCS said. Grades 6-12 would return in mid-January.

Parents may choose in-person or virtual learning for their child for the remainder of the year. Students who do not have a learning option selected by October 30 will be automatically enrolled in the in-person option for the remainder of the school year.
