Taylor County Families:
Our first concern will always be the safety and well-being of our students and families. Therefore, our district will remain closed until Sunday, April 12th. We will continue to monitor the situation and receive guidance from the local health department.
I have received several questions about Prom and Graduation for seniors. At this point, no one knows for sure when we will be allowed to resume. I can tell you that we are 100% committed to having a graduation ceremony to honor our seniors. Everything is simply going to be dictated pending on how the pandemic escalates and then subsides.
With this closure, students have already received assignments through week #3. Week #4 of the closure is spring break, with NO assignments. Remember, SAFETY is our priority and NTI instruction is required in order to receive credit instructional hours. Do not allow the instruction to become stressful. If you need help, give us a call.
As we assess the situation, we may need to send out additional assignments based on the guidance we receive from Lake Cumberland District Health Department and/or the Kentucky Department of Education.
We are encouraging our teachers to find creative ways for your children to learn during these stressful times. In addition, our food and transportation departments are working diligently to deliver breakfast and lunch daily.
If you or your family have ANY needs, whether it is school-related or not, we encourage you to call the Board of Education at 270-465-5371.
