Ringgold Middle and High school students will keep their teachers and classes, but will attend those classes at a different school.

And, instead of going to school all day, they'll just go in the afternoon.

Catoosa County Schools Superintendent Denia Reese said Ringgold's 1,800 students will go to class at Heritage High and Middle schools beginning May 9 and continuing for the rest of the school year.

Heritage students will attend classes in the morning and a second shift of students and teachers from Ringgold will come in the afternoon, she said

"The only change that will occur is that you will be in that location," Reese said in a press conference Friday afternoon.

Reese said coaches will meet on Monday to decide how to schedule practices and games for spring sports, because most of Ringgold's athletic facilities were heavily damaged.
