Letter From The Superintendent: More In-person Instruction logo
We are making plans to adjust our instructional model to include more in-person instruction by combining our A & B hybrid groups starting Thursday, October 29th. Arriving at this difficult decision was certainly a complex challenge as everyone wants to be safe and everyone values the effectiveness of in-person instruction. As educators, our greatest priority is our students' overall mental health and their overall academic progress.
 
Unfortunately, the case numbers of COVID-19 in our county and our state are growing and this is concerning to everyone as well. On Thursday, October 22nd, we will communicate with parents and employees the status of our instructional model for the following week, which includes the planned start date of Thursday, October 29th. Our decision making will include local and regional COVID-19 data and the school closure criteria listed on our district website's COVID-19 dashboard.

Letter From The Superintendent: Planning Ahead logo


The teachers, administrators, and staff of our school district are doing great work during very difficult and challenging times. I am very proud of each one, as they are all working to better serve our students and to improve students' experience in the A/B hybrid model. Overall, students and staff both continue to do a good job of wearing masks and staying physically distanced. Parents, thank you and keep up the good work on conducting health checks for your children each morning.

As a school district, we are working to plan ahead and determine how we can safely provide more in-person instruction to our students. We are also concerned about the mental health and well­being of our students, employees, and parents, in addition to their physical safety during this pandemic. A special school board meeting was held last night to listen and gather feedback from our employees and community on how and when a transition to more in-person instruction is feasible. Please be assured that any changes to how our schools provide instruction would always be contingent on the state of the COVID-19 pandemic in our community.

Notification to Parents and Guardians: REPORTING COVID CASES logo

Notification to Parents and Guardians
REPORTING COVID CASES
                

Kentucky law requires parents to report to their child's schools if their student has a communicable disease that could place other students and staff at risk for infection. While usually that involves things like chicken pox, state public health regulations have been updated to include COVID-19 as one of those communicable diseases.

 

If your student tests positive for COVID-19 at any time, please immediately report it to the school nurse, by calling your student's school. Notification that a student tests positive is important so that we can take reasonable steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading among students. 

 

To allow us to best track the educational needs of your student, please immediately let us know if your child has been placed on quarantine due to COVID-19 so that we can work with you to adjust your student's schedule to prevent learning loss while he/she is quarantined. We are happy to assist with remote learning opportunities and other services that may be available during this time.

Re-entry Plan For Boone County Schools (Updated 11/9) student at desk

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented our community with many complex challenges, including how we will safely educate our 21,000 students. The priority of safely and effectively educating our students must be balanced with the safety of our 3,600 employees and also the financial impact of the pandemic on jobs and our families.

While we cannot eliminate risks altogether, we believe that by following the state and federal guidance listed above we can together significantly reduce the risk of potentially spreading COVID-19 on our campuses. Doing so, however, will require a shared commitment by each of us to take care of ourselves, our families, and everyone in our schools.
