County schools changes
To avoid traffic issues, the Coffee County Board of Education voted Monday, July 8, to change the school calendar.
With Exit 111 set for Oct. 11-13, the traffic is expected to be heavy on Friday, Oct. 11.
To avoid any potential issues, classes will be cancelled for that day, and the in-service day scheduled for Nov. 1 will be held on Oct. 11.
City schools changes
Officials with the Manchester City Schools will make a decision when more information becomes available.
Members of the Manchester City Board of Education have discussed all possible options, according to Director of Manchester City Schools Joey Vaughn.
“We are waiting on more information from the organizers of the festival, as well as from the sheriff’s department about traffic plans,” Vaughn said.
“All options are open, including early dismissal and cancelling classes for that day,” Vaughn said.
