On Monday, the McCreary County School District resumed in-person classes for the first time since implementing virtual and home instruction last March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to McCreary County School Superintendent Corey Keith, the return to in-person classes was successful.
“We have had a great return to in-person classes!” Keith exclaimed. “It has been wonderful to have our children back in our buildings. Our staff is doing a great job implementing the safety procedures and protocols necessary to safely have school during this time.”
By returning to in-person instruction, many new protocols are in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Protocols include COVID-19 screenings, regular temperature checks, face coverings, social distancing, contact tracing, and enhanced cleaning, hygiene, and sanitation procedures.
