All RCS parents were invited to a live conference call with administrators on Thursday, July 30 at 9:00am to discuss the reopening of school. The call was recorded and available for playback by clicking HERE.



We use the Epi Curves website to determine what phase of operation we are in for schooling. Hawkins County is currently at an infection rate of 9.5/100,000 and when the rate hits 10 it triggers the next phase.

We will also be posting the finalized return to school plan this week on our website and on Facebook. We moved from the yellow category of schools re-opening into red.  We will share more with you in the coming days on what this will look like.

Sincerely. JT Stroder




The Nutrition department would like to share some information regarding meal service in the yellow phase. In the yellow phase, the dining areas usage will be limited to accommodate social distancing.   For those students who cannot eat in the cafeteria due to social distancing, those students will be allowed to come to the cafeteria to receive their meal and take it back to their own classroom designated eating area for consumption. Social distancing will occur in all areas of the cafeteria including the serving line where all food is pre-packaged. For those students not attending school in person, meals will be available outside the cafeteria for parent pick up on the west side of the building between 8:30 am and 9:30 am for breakfast, and 12:30-1:30pm., for lunch, Monday -Friday. We ask that parents notify the cafeteria before 12:00 pm each day if they are planning on picking up a lunch for their child or children. You do not have to call ahead if you are picking up a breakfast. Only students who are enrolled in RCS may pick up a meal and the meal will be charged according to the child’s free, reduced or paid meal status. To place your meal order please call Colby Wagoner at 423-272-7651 or email at Please indicate your meal choices and the name(s) of the child the meal is for.

*NEW* Morning Traffic Flow 2020-2021


Rogersville City School Transportation Plan 2020-2021

The Covid-19 situation has dictated that Rogersville City school implement changes in procedure to best protect our students and staff. One of the many changes required is how we will bring students into the building in the mornings. The information below outlines the entry procedure that we will begin using when school reopens for the 2020-2021 school year. We ask that any family with multiple students attending RCS utilize the drop off point for the youngest student enrolled to drop off all of their students.

Entry Points- We will utilize three different entry points in the mornings for student entry.. 

  • 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades will enter from the 1st grade doors off of Reid Terry Dr.
  • K, 2nd and 6th will enter from the front door located beside the elevator.
  • 7th, 8th and bus riders will enter from the back of the gym.

Student Drop Off/Traffic Flow- A meeting was held with Officer Pinkston and Det. Fields concerning the change in morning traffic flow. The proposed traffic flow change has been approved.

Traffic Flow Change:

  • Utilize W College St instead of Harmon Dr. for drop off of K, 2nd and 6th grade students for entry at the door located beside the elevator. A RCS staff member will be stationed at the crosswalk at the end of Harmon Dr. to assist students crossing the street. Approx. 205 students minus bus riders
  • Use of the right hand lane of Reid Terry Dr. to drop off 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students for entry at the 1st grade doors. A RCS staff member will be located at the intersection of Reid Terry Dr. and E College St. This staff member will be stopping traffic from the left hand lane allowing cars from this drop off point to exit on E College St. Approx. 269 students minus bus riders.
  • Use the left hand lane of Reid Terry for bus drop off and for 7th and 8th students for entry at the gym. Approx. 142 students plus bus riders.
