Check this page often for the latest updates on our status, availability and safety precautions.

To all students;

Firstly, we want to say we sincerely hope you; your friends and family are healthy during these potentially stressful times.

We want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to avoid reducing training hours as the COVID-19 coronavirus impacts our community. We will remain open unless otherwise instructed by federal, state or local public officials.

CCS Truck Driving School recognizes the importance of truckers at this time.  We will be providing services, in a safe and controlled environment to ensure that America’s drivers stay licensed, trained and available to deliver critically needed goods.

The changes we will be implementing are based on current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) and have been strategically developed as part of an extensive and ongoing discussion with our team. We recognize that some of these precautions may cause some temporary inconveniences and potential delays in your training. However, please be assured that your health, as well as the health and safety of all members of our community, is our number one priority.

Changes implemented to our school will be effective immediately and will continue until further notice. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call our office at (423) 348-8339. Please note that no exceptions to these precautions will be made, as this is for the safety of our entire community.

In an effort to still continue to serve our students and follow recent CDC guidelines, our office is limiting the number of people present in our office, classroom or inside the tractors at any given time.  We will continue to monitor the CDC, WHO and AOA updates pertaining to COVID-19 and make the appropriate changes.

 

WHAT WE ARE ALREADY DOING:

Hand soap is located in the restrooms. These will be refilled and checked regularly. 

High traffic surfaces such as the front desk and reception areas are wiped regularly throughout the day with disinfectant. In addition to our instrument sterilization, disinfection, and clinical cleanliness, we are also committed to disinfecting anything regularly affected by human touch (this includes but is not limited to door handles, light switches, seating areas, trash cans, and every commonly-touched surface is disinfected throughout the day). Every employee has instructions to check body temperature before they arrive at work and are instructed to remain at home if they are feeling ill.

WHAT WE ARE IMPLEMENTING IMMEDIATELY:

In an effort to promote social distancing, we will essentially limiting the amount of people present in our office at any one time. We ask that only students and potential students enter our offices.  Students should never bring siblings, grandparents, friends, etc. to school.  Gatherings of 9 people or less at all times.

We have removed all magazines, brochures, business cards, and books from our student  areas. 

It is recommended that students, who fall into a high-risk group according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), consider rescheduling their training until May. This group includes;

  • Patients who are immunocompromised. 
  • Patients who have heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes.
