As students in the Hopkins County Schools district prepare for the start of school on Wednesday, Aug. 26, COVID-19 concerns remain a focal point of the discussion.

The Hopkins County Board of Education has approved a plan that allows students in the county to return to in-person instruction, though under the board of education's plan, the start of the term will begin virtually.

From Wednesday, Aug. 26 - Friday, Sept. 4, students will begin school with Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI). According to Hopkins County Schools, NTI may include bringing in small groups of students for short times, such as introducing kindergarten students to their teacher and classroom at the beginning of the year.

After Labor Day, students in the district will return on Tuesday, Sept. 8 - Friday, Sept. 11, where Hopkins County Schools will pair NTI with Soft Openings - allowing 25% of students to return to the classroom, one day a week for a few hours.

As for Monday, Sept. 14 - Friday, Oct. 2, students will participate in a Hybrid Model with in-person classes, before going on Fall Break from Monday, Oct. 5 - Friday, Oct. 9.

When Fall Break ends, students will resume their education with NTI from Monday, Oct. 12 - Friday, Oct. 23.

Finally, the Hybrid Model will resume beginning on Oct. 26 and onward.

According to Hopkins County Schools, the plan is subject to change at any time according to collaboration with the Hopkins County Health Department.

Parents are encouraged to plan ahead for any possible changes and have the option for their child to enter the Remote Learning Program at any time. Students may return to in-person instruction from remote learning at the beginning of a trimester.

The Tri-State is about to witness a metric ton of change over the next 36 hours or so, but before we get to the meat of the forecast let's focus on the hearer and the now - after seeing an absolutely gorgeous start to the work week with afternoon highs nearing the 70° mark and little to no cloud cover, clear skies will linger through the evening ahead and into tomorrow morning as temperature gradually dwindle into the upper 30s and low 40s area-wide. We'll fall to 42° in Evansville setting the stage for yet another mild, albeit far less quiet Tuesday ahead.
