Officials with several Owensboro/Daviess County-area school districts on Friday announced plans for a full return to in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year.

Daviess County Public Schools, Owensboro Public Schools, and the Owensboro Catholic Schools districts collectively announced their intentions to return to full, in-person instruction.

While each district has developed its own individual reopening plan, one universal policy shared by all three districts is optional mask-wearing for the upcoming school year.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
