A major Tri-State school system has voted on a re-opening plan for schools in August.

Daviess County Public Schools Board of Education unanimously approved a plan to reopen schools on August 26th, following a special meeting Monday.

At the meeting, DCPS decided on the "A-B Rotation" for students to start the school year out with.  The rotation would mean that students will be physically in-school for two days out of the week and will have digtial learning for other three days.

Students will be divided up into two groups.  One group will be in the building while the other group will learn from home.  This will lead to 40% of the students for Daviess County, around 4,800 students, to physically at school at a time.

When they are in their classes, social distancing will take place.  This includes masks being worn when social distancing is not possible.

Masks will also be required on the school buses.  Temperature checks will be made on arrival at the building.

Parents will also have the option for their children to take on a Virtual Academy format.  This will be online courses for an entire semister.

School officials made the decision to start the year in a rotation as numbers continue to rise in Daviess County for positive COVID-19 cases.  They have said that once numbers start to go back down or if there is no outbreak at the schools, they will consider allowing all students to have in-person learning five days a week.

Just another day in paradise. Temperatures surged back into the low 70's for the first time in a week and a half and with southerly winds finally returning to the region, more warmth is on the way for the Tri-State. In fact, this evening looks nothing short of absolutely gorgeous across the area - by dinnertime we'll have fallen back down to 71°, but only as low as 58° by 10PM. So, if you have plans out and about this evening, all you may need will be a sweatshirt. We'll also remain relatively mild early Saturday morning, especially when you compare Saturday morning's anticipated low of 48° to previous mornings earlier in the week. Brrr.
