Edmonson Voice Staff:
Edmonson County Superintendent of Schools Brian Alexander has announced that online-only instruction will be extended until January 11, 2021, according to a released statement today.
"Edmonson County Schools will begin the Spring semester of instruction on January 4th, 2021, by continuing instruction on an online learning basis," the statement said. "In-Person learning will resume on January 11th, 2021, for all students on the staggered schedule format. This decision is based on the COVID-19 Mode of Instruction Metrics for K-12 Education released on December 14, 2020 by the Kentucky Department of Public Health, and Governor Beshear’s recommendation to postpone In-Person instruction until January 11, 2021."
The statement continued with "Edmonson County has been in the “RED” category since mid-November*, with predictions to remain in this category throughout the holiday season due to holiday-associated gatherings. In an effort to continue to keep students, staff, and Edmonson County families safe, Edmonson County Schools will continue online learning for the week of January 4-8, 2021, in hopes of minimizing positive COVID cases."
"The teachers, administration, counselors and leadership of Edmonson County Schools will continue to work with students and families to meet their individual needs as we all work together to navigate through this pandemic, and we welcome contact from parents and students. We will be continuing to contact parents and students to meet the education needs and goals of our students. Parents and Students, thank you for continuing to work with our schools. We anxiously look forward to students returning to “In-Person” learning on January 11th, 2021."
"We wish everyone a safe and healthy holiday season," he added. "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year."
