(Boone County, Ky.) – Boone County Schools are set to ramp up in-person instruction.
In a letter to Boone County families and employees, Superintendent Matthew Turner announced that Boone County Schools will be moving forward with a hybrid model.
“We all agree that in-person learning is the most effective way for our students to learn and it is also the best way to meet the social, emotional and mental needs of our students,” said Turner. “Our administrators and teachers are now actively planning and working on the processes and activities for small groups of students and the A/B hybrid model.”
This week and next, the school corporation will bring in small groups of students in the transition grades to get acclimated to their new surroundings. That includes meeting teachers and administrators in person and become familiar with the building and safety protocols that must be followed.
As students slowly return to in-person instruction, buses will be utilized to transport students to and from school. School kitchens will also open to provide food to take home.
With COVID-19, things are still a fluid situation for any school corporation.
Any further decisions made by the school corporation will be determined using the following data:
- County and region COVID-19 data
- Quarantine data and its impact on our schools
- Successful implementation of school health and safety protocols.
“A safe return to in-person instruction will require a commitment to health and safety each and every day at school and at home,” said Turner. “Student, teachers, and employees must monitor their own health, stay physically distant from others, wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose, and wash their hands regularly. Each of these strategies will limit the spread of COVID-19, however, the risks of exposure in school will never be zero.”
