All schools in Sevier County will be open on Wednesday, December 7, 2016.
Pi Beta Phi Temporary Relocation Plan
Pi Beta Phi sixth graders will be at the Eugene W. Huskey Environmental Center and seventh and eighth grade students will be relocated to the state-of-the- art Boys and Girls Club of Gatlinburg facility, located on the Gatlinburg-Pittman High School campus. Be assured that the alternative facilities will be appropriately staffed and stocked, as well as refreshed. We plan for Pi Beta Phi students to be back at their own facility in the beginning of the second semester. Greenbriar School will be relocated to Gatlinburg-Pittman High School.
Buses will run as road conditions permit. We will also have three central busing hubs at Catons Chapel, Pigeon Forge High School, and Sevier County High School in order to transport Gatlinburg-Pittman High School students who have temporarily been relocated due to the disaster. Buses will depart from the hubs to travel to Gatlinbrug-Pittman High School at 7:45 a.m. Buses will return to those same hubs at 3:00 p.m. Parents will need to pick up their children at the hub by 3:15 p.m.
Questions Regarding Transportation
Families displaced due to recent wildfires who have questions regarding transportation for their children to school should contact their home schools to receive information about busing hubs and routes. Questions about Pi Beta Phi Elementary School and Gatlinburg-Pittman High School transportation should be directed to Gatlinburg-Pittman High School at 865-436-5637.
Sevier County School System Donation Information
Thank you for your concern, kindness and support to the Sevier County Schools during this devastating time in our county. It has been determined due to the magnitude and diversity of the needs that monetary donations would be more manageable than in kind gifts of clothing and school supplies.
At this time we are identifying the students and employees that have lost their homes and material possessions and have other special needs. A process is being established with the individual school principals to distribute these funds directly to the families and to the schools.
Donations may be made to Sevier County Schools, 226 Cedar Street, Sevierville, Tennessee 37862 and will be distributed directly to those impacted through our schools. If you would like to designate a particular school please do so. Again, thank you. We urge our friends to continue to pray for us and return to our beautiful county and mountains in the future.
