Officials with the Metropolitan School District of North Posey County have put a halt on all extracurricular activities for elementary schools and junior high schools in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 in their community.

District administration made the call on Monday after meeting to review current COVID-19 numbers within the schools, basing the decision to suspend extracurricular activities off of the increased number of quarantines in elementary and Junior High sports teams.

"Due to these numbers, we have decided to follow some area corporations and implement a few changes," a statement from MSD of North Posey said. "We are going to postpone all ECA activities for the elementary schools and Junior High for the remainder of 2020."

Additionally, all Christmas concerts at MSD of North Posey elementary schools are going to be virtual, but junior high programs will be permitted to continue as planned. All high school activities will also proceed as planned.

As of now, extracurricular activities within the district are scheduled to resume on Friday, Jan. 1, 2021, to allow custodial staff to thoroughly disinfect schools over the break.

In their latest convective outlook, the Storm Prediction Center has reduced our threat for severe weather. Much of the Tri-State remains Under a “1” and a “2” on the Threat Index. Strong winds remain the greatest threat from any storms that develop. Overcast skies for most of the day hindered much of our potential for Severe Weather. A cold front and associated low currently passing through the Tri-State may still produce a potentially Severe thunderstorm or two. The latest model data seems to be in agreement that the greatest likelihood for impactful weather won’t arrive until our greatest threat for Severe Weather concludes. A line of showers and storms will reach out westernmost communities around 5:30 PM. From there, the rainfall will reach Evansville, Henderson and Madisonville by 7PM before pushing in over Owensboro and Jasper before 8PM. Scattered showers may linger for a time following the passage of the initial line of rainfall, making for a damp and cooler evening ahead.
