Town provides masks for Farragut students and staff

The Town of Farragut has purchased masks for all in-person public school students and staff in Farragut. The masks were delivered to principals on Friday, Sept. 4.

The town purchased 4,500 masks to assist students and staff with the Knox County Schools’ mandate to wear face coverings during in-person education. The masks feature a stylized “Farragut” and an anchor motif.

“This gives everyone an extra mask and shows our community spirit,” says Town Administrator David Smoak.

The Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved the purchase of the masks at their Aug. 27 meeting. The cost of the masks will be reimbursed through the Tennessee CARES Act. Through the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF), the CARES Act provides payments to state, local and tribal governments navigating the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Free Farragut masks are also available to the public at Farragut Town Hall and community center during regular business hours. One mask per person; adult and youth sizes are available.

Incorporated in 1980, the Town of Farragut has top schools, safe neighborhoods and high development standards, making it one of the best places to live in the Southeast.
