Welcome to Grainger County Schools


Welcome Back Students and Staff!


It is difficult to believe that summer vacation is over.  School is back in full-swing and the 2016-2017 school year is officially underway. I trust all have enjoyed the summer break and I hope you have used the time away from school to rejuvenate and spend quality time together as a family.

Families are our children's first teachers. You teach them to crawl, to walk, to run. You teach them to dream. When your children start school, your job as teachers doesn't end - it changes. We become partners in your children's education. And it's through this partnership that you help your children reach their full potential - the potential you've dreamed of since the moment they were born.

When parents value education and show it is important through their partnership with the school, students excel. We hope you took the opportunity to attend the PALS meeting at your student’s school and begin the new year by showing your student we are all working together to assure that staff members are equipped to TEACH, students are prepared to LEARN, and all are more likely to SUCCEED.

Welcome back,

Edwin Jarnagin

Director of Schools
