Dear Boone County Families,
Following Governor Beshear’s executive order 2020-696, the Boone County Schools will continue to provide virtual instruction for all students through Monday, January 4th.
Our schools and district buildings will remain open as our teachers, principals, and support staff will continue to work hard in serving the needs of our students during this time. If you have any specific needs, whether academic, counseling, financial, food or clothing, you should contact your school’s office or Family Resource Youth Services Center. Also, if you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 then you should contact your family physician or go to an urgent care facility.
Thank you for your support as we navigate through this challenging time of the pandemic. I recognize and understand the stress and pressures that are placed on our families, students, and employees when school schedules change. I assure you that teachers and district and school leaders are working together provide the best instruction possible to our students and to minimize disruption during transitions.
Everyone should be alarmed by the significant growth of the number of COVID-19 cases in our community, state, and nation during this time. Make no mistake, the high number of cases in our community had a direct impact on our schools’ ability to remain open for in-person instruction. We desperately need each and every person in our community to practice mask wearing, social distancing, and hand sanitization. If everyone responds, we are more likely to see the spread of COVID-19 in our community decrease which should allow our schools to reopen for in-person instruction.
Take care of yourself, your family, and your community.
Matthew L. Turner
