Earlier this week, Troup County School System (TCSS) nurses completed the training required to administer the Moderna vaccination. This required training will allow them to assist the Department of Public Health officials in administering the vaccine to eligible system employees. In conjunction with training for school nurses, all TCSS employees received an electronic survey inquiring if they intended to take the vaccine – over 600 responded affirmatively.
With this information at hand and preparation in place, today, school system officials announced the vaccination process will take place Monday, March 15, 2021 for TCSS employees who indicated interest via the survey. They said this will not impact learning on Monday, March 15th because students are already scheduled to be out of school due to a professional learning day. However, Tuesday, March 16, 2021 will now convert to a virtual learning day for all students.
