Carter County Schools Suspends Extracurricular Activities

Carter County Sports

Athletics in the Carter County School System are on the pause button.

The Carter County Board of Education has voted to suspend all extracurricular activities – including athletics – for two weeks. The board will reassess the situation at their next board meeting on Thursday, August 23.

With the vote, it is expected that Week 1 and Week 2 games will be postponed or canceled, but an official decision hasn’t been announced regarding those games.

Games slated for Week 1 include Happy Valley at Cloudland, Gatlinburg-Pittman at Hampton, and North Greene at Unaka.

The move comes after the board voted to delay the start of school by a week until August 17. During the first week, the schools will be on a staggered schedule with 25% of the student population coming each day.

After the first week, schools will begin in an all-virtual situation.
