HARTFORD, Ky. — After spending the first four weeks of the new school year learning from home, Ohio County students are scheduled to return to schools Sept. 21, 2020. At least those who signed up for in-school classes.
Beginning Monday, Sept. 21, Ohio County Schools will be moving to its Hybrid Learning Schedule. The HLS breaks down into two groups, A and B, made up of students/parents who chose in-person classroom learning, when possible. Those parents/students who chose to do their schoolwork remotely or with NTI will continue to learn at home for the school year.
The HLS provides for a safer experience for those students coming into the classrooms.
- Fewer students will place less strain on social distancing requirements for the bus and classroom.
- Masks will be required at all times other than when eating or drinking per Kentucky Department of Education guidelines.
- Students will be able to eat meals in the cafeteria.
- Having students in the building will allow for individualized instruction to occur.
- Cleaning will occur daily and this model has been approved by the Ohio County Health Department.
The first week of school, Sept. 21-25, will be a B week, which means Group B will attend schools Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Group A will attend Monday and Wednesday. On Group A weeks, Group A will attend Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
See pages 7 and 8 in the OCS 2020-2021 Reopening Plan for a school calendar indicating A or B attendance days.
Each school or teacher will be sending out what group a student belongs to as soon as possible, if you have not already been notified.
Summer feeding routes will continue for those who are not in school each day. The stops and delivery times will be posted in the near future.
