On Monday, students of Kentucky Wesleyan College (KWC) returned to their first day of classes on campus.

Since classes began on Aug. 17, KWC says there will be no Labor Day and Fall Holiday in order to complete classes by Thanksgiving. Final exams will be completed remotely the week after Thanksgiving.

As part of the return to on-campus instruction, students, faculty, and staff are being asked to commit to the "Panther Promise," a social contract that outlines the steps and measures each member of the KWC community will commit to in order to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

Signage has been posted around KWC's campus to remind everyone of the Panther Promise, which encourages social distancing, the wearing of masks, and more.

Additionally, classrooms and meeting spaces at KWC have been reset to allow for appropriate physical distancing.

Regular classes will conclude Nov. 24 with online Final Exams to be taken after Thanksgiving.

More information on the return to class at KWC can be found on KWC's Campus COVID-19 Information page.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
