Official District Statement Regarding Emergency Preparedness Plan logo

Statement From Superintendent Dr. Randy Poe Regarding Boone County Schools Implementing Emergency Preparedness Plan

Boone County Schools Implementing Emergency Preparedness Plan logo

Dear Parents and Guardians,
Due to the State of Emergency, as called by Governor Andy Beshear, Boone County Schools will be implementing NTI (Non-Traditional Instruction) in accordance with KRS 158.070 (9). Starting Monday March 16th up to Monday April 20th instruction will be delivered for all students during the day while at home. However, if the State of Emergency is lifted before April 20th we may resume classes.

We are taking these measures after Governor Beshear declared a State of Emergency in Kentucky and in accordance with the guidelines put out by the Northern Kentucky Health Department. Non-Traditional Instruction and event cancellations are being done out of an abundance of caution and to help stem the tide of the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Your child’s health and safety are our first priority.

Talking to Children About COVID-19 playground kids

You know your children best. Let their questions be your guide as to how much information to provide. However, don’t avoid giving them the information that health experts identify as critical to ensuring your children’s health. Be patient; children and youth do not always talk about their concerns readily. Watch for clues that they may want to talk, such as hovering around while you do the dishes or yard work. It is very typical for younger children to ask a few questions, return to playing, then come back to ask more questions. 

When sharing information, it is important make sure to provide facts without promoting a high level of stress, remind children that adults are working to address this concern, and give children actions they can take to protect themselves. 

Statement on the Coronavirus logo

Misinformation through social media is hyping hysteria about the Coronavirus or Covid-19. We know and understand your concerns and fears as we too have children and families. But misinformation is spreading more quickly than the virus. We want to assure you that at this time there are no outbreaks in the Northern Kentucky region however we are aware that could change at any time. It is very important to stay informed and listen to the advice of our public health officials. In this case that is the Northern Kentucky Health Department. 

As a school district, there is no reason to change anything about our current routines and if that should change we will immediately notify you. 

What we do know is that Covid-19 is a respiratory illness, as is influenza, except that corona is more contagious. And while the CDC is working on a vaccine for it, you should take the same precautions as you would for the flu. Wash your hands regularly, cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough, and when you are sick, stay home from work or school and drink lots of fluids. Not only should you do these things but teach your children to take the same precautions. 

Since the earliest cases were reported, hoaxes, lies and junk science about the virus have swirled through social media. People are more click-susceptible during these events because there’s so much information floating around out there and people don’t know who to trust. 

Stay informed through trustworthy sources like the CDC and the Northern Kentucky Health Department. The Boone County School District Administration also works closely with the Kentucky Department of Education and you can be assured that we will follow all suggested guidelines from the Department of Education and the Health Department.
