September 10, 2021
Dear Boyd County Families,
Due to extremely high COVID-19 quarantines and positive cases in the district, BCPS will be closing for the week of September 13, 2021. All schools in BCPS will be closed beginning Monday, September 13, 2021, through Friday, September 17, 2021. These days WILL NOT be NTI days. School will resume on Monday, September 20, 2021. The days will be made up later in the school year by adding time to the school day or adding days to the end of the school year. At this time, extracurricular activities will still take place.
The number of students and staff, who are positive and/or quarantined has greatly impacted our ability to operate buses, food service, and deliver classroom instruction. While closed, our custodial staff will focus on a thorough cleaning of our buildings.
Meals to prepare at home will be available for parent pick up at your child’s school on Wednesday, September 15th. Each student may receive five days of breakfast and lunch at this time. Parents must call cafeteria managers Monday, September 13th, by 1:00 pm to have students put on the list for meals. If you have children enrolled at multiple schools, you may pick up at one location, but you must give their name and school of enrollment to the cafeteria manager on Monday.
Boyd Co High School/Boyd County Central 928-7016
Boyd Co Middle School 928-4550
Early Childhood Academy 928-7103
I will continue to look at our district numbers and make decisions as needed. I will make every attempt to notify you as soon as possible. Like last year, please have a plan in place in case of school closures. Thank you for supporting BCPS. Your efforts to assist us through this everchanging challenge are greatly appreciated.
