Ohio County Public Schools are releasing their re-opening plan for the 2021-2022 school year.

The district plans to hold their first day of school on August 11th, 2021.

School officials say the plan is subject to change by National/State Executive Orders, KDE mandates, or CDC/Health Department regulations.

Officials say many of the health and safety protocols from last year will be carried into the new school year.

As of now, the general procedures for Ohio County Schools follows:

  • Fully vaccinated staff and students will not be required to wear a mask during the school day
  • It is recommended, not mandated, that staff and students who are not full vaccinated continue to wear masks indoors (Masks are optional)
  • Any staff or students who wish to continue to wear a mask in any situation should feel free to do so
  • Masks will be provided if needed
  • A Minimum of 3-feer social distance will be in place
  • Schools will utilize seating charts should contact tracing occur
  • Hand sanitizer will be available
  • Visitors to the building will be limited to those that have an essential function. Until further notice, visitors will not be permitted to come for breakfast/lunch with students
  • Parents are requested to scree students before allowing them to leave for school
  • Students with temperature of 100.4 should remain home and parents should contact the school
  • Busses will be cleaned and sanitized throughout the week
  • Vaccinated individuals will not be required to quarantine in the event of a positive contact
  • At this time, OCS will offer traditional in-person instruction. Any other instructional options must be approved by a medical professional or the superintendent's office

The bitterly cold start to our Wednesday will inevitably lead to a cooler-than-average afternoon across the Tri-State. We're currently expecting an afternoon high of 26° in Evansville on Wednesday afternoon (that’s 17° below average for this time of the year). Temperatures will once again dive back down towards the teens for many of us overnight and into early Thursday. As for right now Thursday morning looks as though will be slightly warmer, but only just - believes model data indicates that we will see a morning low temperature of 14° under partly cloudy skies in Evansville tomorrow morning.
