Let's Go Bulldogs!


Dear Parents, Students and Community Members,

It is truly hard to believe that we are now in July!  From our March 16th closure until now, who would have ever thought we would all go through what we've been experiencing as a community, state and nation?  On July 1st, I had the pleasure of meeting with several members of the Gleason faculty, staff and parent representatives to discuss and plan our school re-opening policies and procedures.  Over the last several weeks, plans and guidelines have been developed and circulated at the state and district level as a tool for schools to safely and effectively begin the 2020-2021 school year.  Our Gleason School plan will reflect these guidelines in a manner that meets the needs of our students and community.  As you can imagine, this is a tedious task containing items that have the potential to change as the situation in our county and state changes.  At this moment, we plan to begin the 2020-2021 school year as scheduled on Aug. 3rd.  In the coming weeks, we will release links that contain detailed information and plans for your child's return to school.  Because this process is foreign to us all, you will naturally have questions and concerns.  We will attempt to be as thorough and clear as possible in answering your questions.  If we don't know the answer, we will work relentlessly to get you an answer.  Our entire faculty and staff will be meeting with me on July 8th to put finishing touches on our Gleason School plan.  Once the final draft is completed, we will release parent, student and community copies.  I want to reiterate that as information changes daily, so does our plan.  This fact makes an accurate final release of information to you exceedingly difficult.  Please understand that as the climate of the situation in our community, state and nation changes, so will our plan.  Our goal is to remain flexible so that we may meet the needs of the students we serve.  Once you have the finalized plan, I encourage you to call us at 731-648-5351 or email Lee.Lawrence@wcsk12tn.net with any questions.  You may also contact any of our teachers via the emails listed on our school website, www.gls.weakleyschools.com.  Please support your child's teacher(s) in every way possible as they navigate multiple changes to our normal routines, all with the goal of making your child's school experience better than ever.  As always, I deeply appreciate your patience and support.  I believe our Bulldog family is stronger than ever and ready to pave the way forward.

***Based on the input we are receiving from state and health authorities, Weakley County Schools will open our doors to students on August 3, 2020, as planned. We have established teams made up of school, business, health and government representatives to help us plan for a safe and healthy school year. To plan effectively, we need to know the number of students who will be returning.  Please fill out the survey via the link below:
