Snowy morning (copy)

A snowy morning in Franklin in 2018.

Williamson County Schools students stayed home from school Friday, not because of COVID-19 but because of inclement weather.

It's back to campus first thing Monday.

The district announced early Friday morning that "due to hazardous travel conditions caused by snow in some parts of the county," it would take the first of its 10 inclement weather days allotted for the year. This meant all students, even those in online or remote learning, had the day off.

After returning to school remotely following winter break, all schools will return to campus on Monday.

School board member for District 9 Rick Wimberly said it appears COVID-19 numbers are low enough in the county to allow a full return to campus.

"School administrators think they'll have enough staff on-site Monday," he said on social media. "We'll continue to consider converting to remote on case-by-case basis. Precautions continue."

Throughout the school year, the district has released its COVID-19 case data weekly on its website. Because students have not returned to campus since before winter break, the most recent WCS data is from Dec. 18.
