Dr. Stephens: Welcome back, Adair County students!

By Dr. Pamela Stephens, Superintendent
Adair County Schools

Governor Andy Beshear recently signed an executive order that goes into effect March 1 regarding Kentucky schools reopening in a face-to-face format. I am pleased to announce the Adair County Board and I, along with the staff of Adair County schools, are thrilled to welcome all students back into our buildings on Monday, March 22, 2021.

Parents and students, we have heard your voices indicating you want schools opened for in-person learning and we have listened. This is an exciting time for our students as this will be the first time some classmates will have been in classes together since last March 13.

The March 22 date corresponds with the beginning of the final grading period for this academic year. The hybrid schedule will end on Friday, March 19, 2021.

The new schedule structure will be four days a week face-to-face, and Wednesdays will remain virtual for the remainder of the year for all preschool through 12th grade students.

A virtual option does remain in place for those students who are currently on a virtual schedule; however, those students may return in person on March 22 if they choose to do so.

If virtual students wish to return March 22, parents may contact the school to make those arrangements.

The guidance document governing schools re-opening in person does require masking for all students and staff at all times, including while riding on buses.

We cannot wait to see all of our students on March 22 as we welcome you back to our campus.

Please keep an eye on your school's website and look for new information in various other formats about some fun learning experiences that are going to be available this summer. Plans are being finalized now and students at all schools will have opportunities for some fun in the sun activities coupled with great learning activities. Spring parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for Wednesday, March 10 from 1:00-7:00 p.m. at all schools. This will give parents a chance to ask questions about summer programs as well as discuss this year's academic progress.
