In accordance with the executive order enacted by the Governor, Trimble County Schools will not be returning to in-person learning on December 7, 2020. The order states that if a county is still in the red category, no in-person learning can take place. Today’s county incidence rate is 35.4 and Trimble County needs to be at 25 or below to return in-person. We will re-evaluate our county incidence rate again next Thursday to determine if in-person learning could resume on December 14, 2020. In the meantime, we will continue with virtual learning for students in grades K-12, small-group instruction in alignment with the Healthy At School Guidance and meal pick-up/distribution. Should you have additional questions, please feel free to call our board office at 502-255-3201 or your child’s school. You can view the statewide incidence rate here: https://kygeonet.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/543ac64bc40445918cf8bc34dc40e334
Good Morning! This is just a friendly reminder that we are still providing Friday meal distributions. All children in the community between the ages of 1-18 are eligible to receive meals. Pick-ups for 7-days of meals (breakfast and lunch) will be available at the rear of Trimble County Jr/Sr. High School or Milton Elementary school between 12:00 – 1:30pm. If your child was signed up to bring meals home with them on Thursday afternoons when we were “in-person," you are eligible to pick up those meals on Fridays also, at the back of whichever school is closest to you. If you were previously on the delivery listing, the buses will be making those deliveries on Friday as normal. Please be watching for the bus so that you can accept your meal delivery. If you will not be home to accept the delivery, please place a cooler or tote at the end of your drive and we will gladly put your food inside the container. Please let us know if you have any questions.

This message is for the families that chose “In-Person” learning for their students.

Happy Friday TC Students and Families! It’s hard to believe that we begin in-person classes on Monday. We never would have thought that when we sent students home on March 13th 2020, that we wouldn’t see them again until almost October…and it is finally here! We are excited to begin face to face instruction next week! I cannot express my overwhelming gratitude and appreciation for the entire Trimble County Staff…. I am proud of their dedication and compassion that so many of us have witnessed. They have worked tirelessly to make the best of this situation. I hope the materials and information that we share with you have been helpful. We want to be very transparent about the covid data in our school district, so we have created a Trimble County Schools COVID-19 Dashboard to keep the community informed. This link will be on our district web-page for anyone to have access to view at any time. The dashboard shows new cases daily, active cases, and number of students and staff in quarantine. The data on the dashboard has been confirmed through the health department or a medical facility and then communicated to our office. Please let us know what questions you may have concerning the dashboard data. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jEwa25EUbp9THp9mL-FuRXaDvv1EbWRit3fSces2ePA/edit?usp=sharing
Important information regarding Food Service Meals… Thank you to everyone that has participated in the Friday Meal Distribution program! We’re so happy that we’ve been able to help the families in our community during this trying time. We’re even more excited to see all of the smiling faces returning to our schools this coming Monday, September 28th! If your student is coming back for “In-Person” learning, they will no longer receive the bulk meal distribution on Fridays, as they will be fed those meals while in our buildings. If your student is not returning in person and will be a virtual student, they are still eligible for Friday bulk meal distributions. We have the updated list of virtual students but if you would like to confirm, please fee free to call us at 502-663-0043 or 502-663-0101. Thank you and have a great day! #weareTC

New Metric Guidance for School Districts I wanted to update you all on the most recent guidance from the Governor and the Kentucky Department for Public Health. The Governor announced Monday that his office will not make another recommendation to school districts after September 28th about holding in-person or virtual classes, instead, a new metric will be used to assist with these decisions. The Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH) has created a four-color metric to guide school districts and administration in deciding whether to offer in person, virtual or hybrid instruction amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The metric provides school districts with the data needed for decision-making at the local district level. As long as the state’s positivity rate stands at less than 6%, the metric will be used to give guidance for local decision-making on instruction and athletics. The state positivity rate and a map of incidence by county can be found at www.kycovid19.ky.gov. Decisions on school instruction and activity for each coming week should be based on the color level at 8 p.m. ET each Thursday. The color-coded system recommends specific mitigation measures based on levels of disease transmission. The four levels are: Green, with fewer than one case per 100,000 county residents, means schools can hold either in-person or remote classes as long as schools are following the Healthy at School guidance. Gov. Beshear’s guidance on group gatherings and other standard precautions still must be followed. Sports may resume if Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) guidelines are followed. Yellow, with 9.9 or fewer cases per 100,000 people, also allows in-person or remote learning and sports, but with heightened mitigation steps as coordinated by local officials, school administrators and public health leaders. Orange, with 24.9 or fewer cases per 100,000, means schools should take into account a variety of factors to determine if they should move to remote learning exclusively. Sports still would be allowed, but there must be strict adherence to health guidelines. Small groups of students may be allowed into schools for targeted services. Red, for more than 25 cases per 100,000, means schools should move the following week to all-virtual instruction. Sports and all extracurricular activities must be suspended. Only essential staff should regularly be in school buildings, still adhering to Healthy at School guidance. Essential student support services, such as providing meals, should continue. Small groups of students can be allowed in schools for targeted services. All these measures should remain in effect until the community returns to yellow status at a future Thursday decision point. School Districts will operate based on the color of their county as indicated on the state map. Link to map: https://govstatus.egov.com/kyc... New Emergency Regulation Issued A new emergency administrative regulation from DPH, signed by Gov. Beshear, requires those responsible for students – parents, guardians, or other caregivers – to notify their child’s schools within 24 hours if a student tests positive for COVID-19. Schools are then required to notify DPH each school day of the number of students and school personnel who test positive for COVID-19. The results that school districts report will be posted to an online dashboard, which can be filtered by county, district, or specific school. Those reports will include the number of positive cases reported and number quarantined due to possible exposure among both students and school personnel. Schools also will be required to provide detailed information on any positive student cases to the local health department to enable contact tracing. The data made public on the daily report dashboard will not disclose the identity of students or school personnel. Health departments will need names and contact information, but that will be collected through private, in-person discussion between health officials and schools. The public dashboard can be accessed at www.kycovid19.ky.gov. The COVID-19 Mode of Instruction Metrics for K-12 Education can be viewed here: https://chfs.ky.gov/agencies/d... Please let us know what questions or concerns you may have as it relates to the new metric guidance. This tiered response approach will enable school districts to make decisions that are more directly aligned with their community and county data. Thank you for your continued support! #weareTC
Childcare on NTI Fridays In-person Instruction will begin on Monday, September 28th for all students that selected this option. In-person students will attend school Monday through Thursday, and every Friday we will implement a district-wide Non-Traditional Instructional Day (Raider Day). Milton Elementary School and Bedford Elementary School will provide NTI Day Childcare on Fridays from 7:45am to 3:15pm beginning the Friday after Fall Break (10/16/2020). This service is available to students in grades K-6 that are enrolled for in-person learning and whose parents/guardians work outside of the home. Parents are responsible for student transportation. Breakfast and Lunch will be provided to childcare students. Any child that needs to stay beyond 3:15pm, our after school ACES program will be an option. ACES operates daily at MES and BES from 3:15pm to 6:00pm for $8/day. The $8 fee is for ACES only, there is not a cost for NTI Childcare. In the event, we have to close our facilities to in-person instruction, NTI Childcare will not be available. This is only a provided service while in-person instruction is permissible. To request NTI childcare, go to the following link, complete the form and submit it by September 30, 2020. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdHIg4-gFcNB4tXCBuzucQsXHscZ-Iob2GroS0dLIKWhAITVQ/viewform?usp=sf_link If you have questions about our reopening plans, please feel free to contact your child’s school or the Trimble Co.

To our TC Students and Families—We were disheartened with the Governor’s most recent recommendation and want nothing more than to see our students in-person and resume school functions and activities. We wholeheartedly believe our students need to return to school in person as soon as that option is safe to do so - but until then, we remain committed to providing meaningful learning experiences for all students. We also want our students safe, our employees safe and our community safe. We are committed to the community we serve, and feel compelled to do everything possible to support our students academically, socially, and emotionally. More details will emerge from the Kentucky Department of Education and the Kentucky Department for Public Health over the next few weeks, providing us with more information and updated guidance. However, we know that at this time, we are permitted to meet in person with students in small groups, such as hosting “introductory” meetings for a few students at a time to meet their new teachers, etc. This is especially important for young children and for students who are transitioning to a new school. This is not the way we had envisioned the start of this school year but we’re going to give it the best we can to continue serving the students in this community….. OUR COMMUNITY and the TC that we love. Thank you for your continued support as we work together on behalf of the children of Trimble County. Updated Reopening Plan as of 8/12/2020 Link https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kQR4al82vAVUxphoDeTuxZTaUgl1kDbe/view?usp=sharing

We realize that many of our parents/guardians work and are not home on Fridays and we do not want this to be a barrier to any of our families that selected the in-person option. Therefore, MES and BES will provide NTI Day Childcare every Friday from 8:00am to 3:15pm. This service is available to students in grades K-6 that opted for in-person learning. Breakfast and Lunch will be provided and the Healthy At School Guidelines will be followed. For any child that needs to stay beyond 3:15pm, our after school ACES program will still be an option. ACES operates daily at MES and BES from 3:15pm to 6:00pm for $8/day. The cost is for ACES only, there is not a cost for NTI Childcare. In the event that we are forced to close our facilities to in-person instruction, NTI Childcare will not be available. This is only a provided service while in-person instruction is permissible. As always, Trimble County Public Schools will continue to monitor the situation, reassess procedures and make changes as needed and/or recommended by local, state and federal authorities. As the pandemic evolves, our staff continues to revisit and improve our reopening plans to ensure that we can provide the safest in-person instructional opportunities possible for our families that have selected this option. Please keep in mind that TCPS wants to keep students’ education as uninterrupted as possible and all efforts are being made to provide an equitable, quality educational experience for all of our students regardless of the setting.
In-Person Schedule Change Good Morning TC Students and Families, As of today we have had 89% of our population complete the “Return to School” survey and currently 32% of our students have selected the at home virtual learning option. Because we have approximately one-third of our students that will be learning from home, we recognize that it will be necessary to provide support to our educational staff to have adequate time to plan, prepare, connect and communicate with our virtual students. In order to do this, we will implement a district-wide Non-Traditional Instructional Day (Raider Day) every Friday beginning September 4, 2020. So what does this mean for me and my family? This change will have no effect on virtual students and families because these students will already be doing their learning from home each school day. For in person students, this means that students in grades K-12 will attend school physically Monday through Thursday, however, Fridays will be Non-Traditional Instructional (NTI) days, and students will complete their lessons from home. All Trimble County School Staff will be reporting to work on NTI Fridays so therefore, teachers will be accessible to all students, virtual and in-person students for any support they may need on these days.
Happy Friday TC Students and Families, The countdown is on…. we are officially just a little under a month away from the start of a new school year! We know this year is going to look different from years past, but we are excited and eager to get the school year underway and see our students again! We just want to remind you that we need all families that have not completed the “return to school” survey, to please do so today. This is very important information that is necessary for our planning, concerning in-person class sizes, staffing needs and making accommodations to the facilities. To access the survey and make your selection, please visit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZNSS9GM Next week, please be on the lookout for information concerning: On-line Student Registration, Student Schedules & Class Assignments, Chromebook Distribution and Orientation for Kindergarten & Seventh grade students. We will also be asking families that have selected the virtual option for their child(ren) to select either Option 1A – Teacher Facilitated Online Learning or Option 1B – Self-Paced Online Learning. If you have questions about these options, please contact the school or refer to this informational document: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Gctey2v4kC5WZqL507mTXsWe0XpSFMIy/view?usp=sharing As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns that you may have…we are here to help! #weareTC
Instructional Options: Virtual or In-Person with Internet Information This document defines the virtual and in-person options available for our students this coming school year. There were many families that voiced concerns about not having the internet…we listened, took note and have developed solutions to this problem. With the proposed plans in this document, families DO NOT have to have the internet to select a virtual option. We did not want this to be a barrier in making this tough decision. We realize this is a difficult decision, but please know that we respect and support the decisions that you make in determining the best way to educate your child. There is not a wrong or right answer, and I hope that our community will show compassion, regardless of the decisions made by families and the decisions that are made on behalf of the school system. WE are a team! We ask that after you review all of the information, please determine which option is best for your family and complete the survey below by July 31, 2020.

Good morning TC students and families. We recognize the lack of Internet service in our community continues to be a barrier for some of our families. We are diligently working to find multiple solutions to assist those families that feel selecting the virtual option for the upcoming school year is in their child's best interest. I ask for your patience as we work through this challenge. We plan to get this information to you and still allow your family ample time to thoroughly review your options before you make a definitive decision about selecting either the in-person option or the virtual option. This morning, we finalized the districts "Healthy At School" guidance document that outlines tiered response plans for the district based on the COVID cases in our school and district.

We are extremely saddened to report that the Governor has announced that Kentucky's public schools will remain closed for the rest of the school year. There will be more information coming soon with specific plans for Trimble County Schools.
Hang in there, stay strong and do what is necessary to stay healthy. We miss our students, we miss seeing them, we miss watching their sports/activities, talking with them, seeing their smiles.. We love our students & we pray daily for them and this community!🙏 #weareTC

Meals for the week will be available Tues. & Fri. from 12 to 1:30pm. If you have any questions, please call 255-3201. Currently, we have at least 3 more weeks of NTI Days.... let's all do our part to make them the best that we can and let us know what we can do to help!

Welcome back to school students, staff and families! We hope that you had a restful spring break and were even able to relax a bit. We had some great weather and we have thoroughly enjoyed seeing photos on social media of our students and staff from your spring break activities!
The Governor just announced to Kentucky Superintendents that schools should remain closed until May 1st. TC Schools will follow this recommendation and close through May 1st. Following Spring Break, we will be planning and communicating plans for NTI Week 6 - Days 26-30.
All meals for spring break will be served tomorrow. Please be patient with distribution because it may take longer than usual. We appreciate your support and patience as we all work together to protect our community and ensure that our students needs are being met! #weareTC
We have asked our teachers to "disconnect" over Spring Break and we would like our students to also if they are caught up. We will be closed over spring break (April 6 - 10) so if you need to pick something up or turn something in, please ensure you do that today or tomorrow.
Tomorrow, concludes our 3rd NTI Week of School. Please do your best to stay on track to ensure that all 15 days of NTI lessons are complete. If you need help, reach out today or tomorrow to get the assistance that you need so that you can take a break during Spring Break.
Don't forget meals will be available on Tuesday and Friday for the entire week. Our meal service has almost tripled since the first day! Hang in there guys... we're all in this together! Let's do all that we can to keep ourselves, our families and our community safe and healthy.
Student packets can be picked up and student work returned in the foyer of each school. Spring Break is scheduled for April 6-10. Every school has packets/lessons prepared and available for the weeks following Spring Break. NTI Week 4 (April 13-17) and NTI Week 5 (April 20-24).
You have been weighing on our hearts and minds! It's hard to believe that it has been two weeks since school was last in session and we're beginning our 3rd week of Non-Traditional Instruction tomorrow! This week (March 30th - April 3rd) will be Raider Days 11-15.
To ensure that we are implementing the safest measures we can for our employees, meal delivery & pick-up service will change next week. Meals for the entire week will be provided on Tuesdays and Fridays, 12 to 1:30pm for pick up & delivery. This week we will still serve daily.
Next week (March 30-April 3), are NTI Days 11-15. Those packets for students are ready and if you did not pick them up last week, you can pick them up at your child's school tomorrow from 9am to 3pm. Parents, please talk to your kids & help ensure they are keeping up each day.
This coming week (March 23-27), are NTI Days 6-10. The packets for this week were also handed out to students before they were dismissed from school on the 13th. Students that are working on-line need to follow the pace in the platform with projects and focus areas.
Good Evening Families and Students, Last week were NTI Days 1-5 (March 16-20). Those packets/lessons were given to the students before they were dismissed from school on the 13th and HOPEFULLY, those lessons are complete and students are ready for NTI Days 6-10 this week.
The Governor just announced to Kentucky Superintendents in a conference call that Kentucky Schools should remain closed until April 20th. Trimble County Schools will follow this recommendation. Spring Break will be April 6 to April 10 and NTI Days will resume after Spring Break.

In compliance with safe school measures recommended by the state, any student that makes a statement such as this will not be permitted to return to school until a threat assessment has been conducted. Charges will also be filed with law enforcement as warranted.
Today during school dismissal, it was reported that a Jr. High student made a vague threat about shooting up the school. The principal contacted law enforcement to go to the child's home and ensure that weapons are not available to the student. We take every report seriously.
We would like to commend our staff and students for their quick response to this threat and also our local law enforcement and KSP for acting so quickly. We never intend to scare anyone but we must take every precaution to ensure the safety of our students, staff and community.
Dear Parents, the Kentucky State Police E Crimes Unit was able to determine the Snapchat threat sent to the student originated in England. They have no reason to believe our students are in danger. We are no longer in soft lockdown. Law enforcement will stay through dismissal.
At this time, we have no reason to believe that any of our students are in danger. However, we are taking every precaution to ensure our students safety. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Dear TC Parents and guardians: Our TC Junior Senior High has gone into a soft lock down because one of our students has received a message threatening in nature from an unidentified source. Law enforcement is at the school while we are investigating the source of this message.
