The Daviess County, KY Public Schools says the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the community is forcing the district to go with its remote learning plan for all students.

The district consulted with the Green River District Health Department, superintendents of surrounding school districts, and the Board of Education before making the decision.

All high school students will shift to remote learning beginning Monday, Nov. 16. 

Beginning Monday, November 23, all P-8 students will transition to remote learning.

According to the district, this includes all small groups-- including ELL and special education.

The district says it has worked diligently to keep in-person instruction as an option. But based on the recommendations of health experts the decision was made to go with remote learning.

This status will remain in effect until at least Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021.

That gives the district a minimum of four weeks of remote learning, followed by Christmas break.

The district will make a decision on or before Dec. 26 regarding whether we will be able to resume in-person classes on the A-B schedule starting on Jan. 5, depending on current public health conditions in Daviess County at that time.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
