Officials with Metro Nashville Public Schools have announced campuses throughout the district will close through April 3.

“Ensuring the well-being of our students and staff is our top priority in how our district responds to the COVID-19 state of emergency,” Director of Schools Adrienne Battle said in a news release. “We appreciate Governor Lee taking the first step of flexibility for districts by urging for all schools to remain closed throughout the month of March, and we’ll be closely monitoring the situation to determine when it will be safe to reopen our schools.”

MNPS closed on March 12-13 ahead of spring break due to concerns about the potential spread of coronavirus. In addition to school closures, school board chair Anna Shepherd has cancelled the board meeting on March 24.
