Good Morning Students and Families,
We are most hopeful that you all have enjoyed a healthy, happy Christmas Holiday and are gearing up for the New Year! We certainly are doing so and are eager to get back to school and see our students! Thankfully, Trimble County’s Covid Incidence rate has seen a steady and consistent decline the past couple weeks and now currently the rate stands at 27. With the current data where it stands, Trimble County Schools will resume in-person classes on Tuesday, January 5, 2021. Monday, January 4th will be a teacher/staff professional day that will be utilized to ensure covid related protocol and safe school measures are reviewed and fine-tuned to ensure the safest return possible for our students. Virtual students will also resume their classes on January 5, 2021. Trimble County Schools will continue to follow the same instructional model as the first semester. In-Person students will physically attend school Monday-Thursday. Fridays will be Non-Traditional Instructional Days for all students.
I assure you that we will continue to monitor the incidence rate in the community and within our school district. It is probable that the rate will increase later in January, as a result of Holiday gatherings. If we see a significant increase in cases, at that time, we will be prepared to move to a hybrid schedule with Blue Learning Days and Gold Learning Days. Prior to making this change, we would do our best to thoroughly communicate what that schedule looks like for each of our families.
If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us. We are SO EXCITED to resume classes with our in-person and virtual students on January 5th. See you then!!!
