The Muhlenberg County Public Schools district said Thursday that all schools within the district would be switching to an all-virtual learning format as of Monday, Nov. 16.

District officials say the switch to virtual will continue through Friday, Dec. 4, at which time the situation will be re-evaluated based on the county's current COVID-19 numbers.

According to MCPS, the decision to go virtual was made based on a recommendation made by the local health department due to the rising number of staff and student quarantines within the district.

With a current COVID-19 incidence rate of 33.6 new daily cases per 100,000 population, Muhlenberg County is in Kentucky's COVID-19 Red Zone. Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear has asked all schools within the COVID-19 Red Zone to practice virtual learning.

A list of all schools within the MCPS district can be found on the district's website.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
