“It is our intention to start welcoming our students back to our buildings on January 11,” HCS Superintendent Teresa Morgan said. “There was a surge of positive COVID-19 cases after the Thanksgiving holiday. Waiting until January 11 allows for a possible surge after the New Year’s holiday to fade. That date is also the one Governor Beshear recently recommended. We truly want our students back at school. We all know that is the best place for them to learn with the most effectiveness and rigor.”
Students returned from Winter Break on Monday, Jan. 4, and continued with non-traditional instruction (NTI). The HCS Online Learning Academy, which also restarted Monday, will continue for the rest of the school year, the district said.
According to HCS's website, face-to-face instruction will return the same way it ended in October with a hybrid A/B format. On Monday and Thursday, Group A students will be in class while Group B students will be in class Tuesday and Friday. The groups will rotate on Wednesdays.
The district said the groups will continue to rotate in that fashion as long as the hybrid A/B plan is in place.
Some rotation schedule changes include that Group B students will be in class on Wednesday, Jan. 13, and Group A students will be in class on Wednesday, Jan. 20.
