Students in the Dawson Springs Independent Schools District in Dawson Springs, Kentucky, will be learning virtually for the time being.

DSISD Superintendent Larry Whalen says starting Wednesday, Sept. 8, all students will begin learning virtually through at least Friday, Sept. 10.

For now, Supt. Whalen says the plan is for students to return back to the classroom on Monday, Sept. 13, but that the situation could change at a moment's notice.

According to Supt. Whalen, the decision to switch to virtual learning was made due to illness within the district, which he says is a mixture of COVID-19 and other sicknesses.

The district will provide meal packs for the rest of the week, with breakfasts and lunches available for pickup between the elementary and middle/high school from 11:00 a.m. - noon.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
