While the January 11, 2020, EF 2 tornado has left our Union Grove Community and the Marshall County School System with a devastating loss of Brindlee Mountain Primary School, we are so thankful and blessed that our children and staff were not at school during this tragic event.

School officials are working diligently to make adjustments in all three schools within the Brindlee Mountain School District in order to provide the safest possible space and accommodations for students and staff of Brindlee Mountain Primary.  Efforts are being made to relocate Brindlee Mountain Primary to the middle school building of Brindlee Mountain High School, and therefore, will be contained in a separate building.

In order to allow time for this transition and adjustments of traffic patterns, school for all three Brindlee Mountain schools, (Primary, Elementary, and High Schools), will be CLOSED this week, January 13-17, 2020.  Extra-curricular activities will continue as scheduled.  All teachers and staff should report as directed by local school administration.  All other Marshall County Schools will be in session and follow their regular schedule.

We certainly appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers, and the support of Representative Wes Kitchens, Senator Clay Scofield, Sheriff Phil Sims and his staff, local churches, and the area Volunteer Fire Departments for their amazing efforts.  We also are so appreciative of our North Alabama school systems for offering their assistance.

The Union Grove community is a strong and supportive community and will work alongside us as we get through this hardship together. For those of you who have asked how you can assist, below you will find some options.
