While it's hard to find anything positive from last Tuesday's tornado that ravaged over 50 miles of Middle Tennessee, the timing of the storm was a blessing considering its path. Two schools in Wilson County - Stoner Creek Elementary and West Wilson Middle, were damaged beyond repair and closed for the rest of the year. But thankfully, because the storm came through at 2:00am, there was no one in either building and there were no casualties.
With Wilson County Schools on Spring Break this week, leaders needed to figure out how students attending those two schools would continue their education for the rest of the 2019-20 school year, and today they announced their plan.
Two other schools in the area will run 4-hour days for the remainder of the year to accommodate extra students.
Stoner Creek will operate out of Springdale Elementary School from 6:45am to 10:45am. Springdale students and teachers will report from noon until 4pm each day.
On the middle school side, Mount Juliet Middle will have classes from 8am until noon, and then West Wilson students will attend from 1pm until 5pm.
