Administration and staff will report to work as usual, according to officials.

This comes after a federal judge ruled Knox County Schools must immediately require all staff and students to wear masks amid a legal battle.

“In an effort to ensure that we are in compliance with this federal order, Knox County Schools will be closed on Monday, Sept. 27,” Thomas said in a message to parents. “We will be using this time to work with our administration and staff, who will report to work as usual, to make sure our schools are ready for students on Tuesday.”
