District leaders with the Warrick County School Corporation (WCSC) released a detailed back-to-school plan on Friday.

WCSC's plan uses a three-level system that is contingent upon the current COVID-19 conditions at each school/in the county, indicated by Green, Yellow, and Red.

Currently, WCSC plans to return to school in person on Wednesday, Aug. 11, under the Green Level of its plan.

  • Under the Green Level, K-12 students will be physically present at school.
  • In the Yellow Level, students will participate in hybrid learning, with some students learning virtually while others are at school.
  • Under the Red Level of the system, no students will physically be in the building, with all K-12 learning conducted virtually at home.

As of Aug. 4, WCSC updated its masks guidance to require masks in its schools through at least the month of August.

Parents are also asked to screen their kids for any symptoms of COVID-19 before sending them to school and to keep them home from school if they exhibit any symptoms.

Other safeguards will be in place inside the classroom like hand sanitizer, physically distanced seating, and more.

The release of the schools re-opening plan comes as good news to Newburgh resident, Hayley Hanes, a relative of a student attending Castle High School. 

"I have two cousins that go to Castle High School and they're super excited for this year without masks cause I'm sure last year was so tough for them trying to learn and trying to do anything wearing a mask for eight hours. I can't imagine." said Hanes.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another unseasonably warm day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Some areas could even see temperatures well into the 70s. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. We won't see any rain from this front, but it will cool temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning.
