Dear BCPS Families,
Boyd County continues to be classified as red according to the current COVID-19 Incidence Rate Map in Kentucky. Therefore, BCPS will continue with NTI for our preschool and elementary students through at least Friday, December 11, 2020. We will decide about the week of December 14th next Thursday after the Incidence Rate Map is updated. High school and middle school students, who chose the traditional learning option, will remain on NTI per the Governor’s Executive Order through at least January 4, 2021. Virtual Academy students’ schedules and work expectations will remain unchanged for all students, who chose the virtual learning option.
Small group in-person learning
- Small group in-person learning will continue while following the Healthy at School guidance for our targeted services. We know some students need small group or individualized instruction, so we plan to continue to provide tutoring in small, scheduled, and controlled settings. Please contact your child’s individual school for details. All usual safety procedures will be in place.
- For students, who are registered for meal delivery, our Food Service and Transportation Departments will continue to deliver meals throughout the week.
- To register for any of our meal service options, please visit our district website or call (606) 928-4141.
- Our daycare centers will continue to be open. Please reach out to the centers if you need more information.
As always, I encourage our community to continue following recommended public health guidelines, including wearing a mask, frequent hand washing, and maintaining social distancing whenever possible. Please be aware of any COVID-19 symptoms, including fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. Additional symptoms may include runny nose, sore throat, nausea, a lack of appetite, loss of smell and taste, diarrhea, headache and body aches. If these symptoms develop, please self-isolate and contact your health care provider or the Boyd County Health Department.
If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact your child’s school, the district office, or the Boyd County Health Department.
