Students in the Hopkins County Schools (HCS) district will return to in-person instruction under a hybrid learning model on Tuesday, Jan. 19.

This will be the first time students will be back in the classroom in two months since Nov. 6, 2020, and Hopkins County Schools Superintendent Dr. Deanna Ashby says the district has made great improvements since then.

For starters, HCS was one of the first school systems throughout Kentucky where educators received the COVID-19 vaccine. As of Jan. 16, the Hopkins County Health Department said it had finished vaccinating the HCS district, in addition to the Dawson Springs Independent Schools District.

While many students in the district will return in-person on Tuesday, Supt. Ashby says that in the end, that choice is up to parents.

"I know that hybrid learning is a difficult decision for a lot of people, but parents, you have a choice," said Supt. Ashby. "If you do not want to send your kids back to hybrid learning, you certainly have the virtual option."

Students in Hybrid Group A will be the first to return in-person on Tuesday, Jan. 19, with Hybrid Group B students returning on Thursday, Jan. 21.
