Boyd County Public Schools Families,
I am excited to share with you that beginning April 5, 2021, Boyd County High School and Boyd County Middle School will be transitioning from the current A/B hybrid schedule to in-person instruction four days a week, which will take place every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. This schedule will be the same schedule we currently use at our Early Childhood Academy and elementary schools. The April 5th date will coincide with the beginning of the fourth nine weeks grading period. All schools will continue to have virtual learning (NTI) each Wednesday for the remainder of the school year. The Virtual Academy option of instruction will continue through the end of the school year as well. The Wednesday virtual learning day will allow our schools to have a mid-week high level cleaning and provide options for small groups of students to attend in-person learning activities. If you have questions about the Wednesday small group instruction, please contact your child’s school.
In addition, BCPS will continue to follow the Healthy at Schools Guidance from the Kentucky Department of Public Health and the Kentucky Department of Education. All students and staff will continue to wear a mask while on school grounds and riding the school bus. Please note that meals will be distributed to in-person students on Tuesday for the NTI Day on Wednesday. Meals will continue to be distributed every Wednesday for our Virtual Academy students. Virtual Academy students may pick up their meals at any of our schools, excluding the Early Childhood Academy location, from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
We continue to plan for the upcoming Junior/Senior Prom that will take place on May 1st and our upcoming graduation that will take place on May 22nd. More information will be released concerning these events at a later date.
We are excited to have the opportunity for more face-to-face time with our students at all of our schools. We have missed them and the interactions that take place during in-person learning. Let’s all continue to do our part to keep everyone safe and healthy!
