Dear Musketeer Families,
As you know we are constantly looking at ways to improve the safety and quality of instruction for our students. When we first returned to school, many families requested to leave the Greenup County Virtual Learning Track (GCVLT) and return to in-person instruction. Similarly, we had many families leave in-person and go to the GCVLT. At this time we are closing the GCVLT enrollment option until next semester. If you have a medical condition that would suggest you need a waiver to attend the GCVLT instead of in-person instruction, we do have a process that you can follow to pursue a switch.
To be transparent, our large number of in-person learners and bus routes makes implementing a regular schedule difficult. I have spoken with administration, teachers, instructional assistants, cafeteria workers, custodians, and transportation and other support staff to get feedback on how we can improve our ability to socially distance. As a result of their input, we have opted to move to hybrid schedule.
The schedule change will begin on October 19, 2020 (this gives everyone time to plan and prepare).
Our high school and middle schools will implement a hybrid A/B schedule. Students whose last name begins A- K will attend in-person on Monday and Tuesday. Students with the last names beginning L-Z will attend in-person on Thursday and Friday. Wednesday and the other two days that a student is not in-person will be NTI days with assignments from their teachers. If you have an issue with students with different last names, contact your school directly and they can work with you to get your children on the same schedule.
The elementary students will attend Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Every Wednesday will be an NTI day for deep cleaning and for teachers to help small groups of students with remediation.
If you have questions, please contact your child’s school or the Board of Education. Thank you for your continued support as we continue to make adjustments to create the safest learning environment possible for our students a staff.
