Superintendent Anna Shepherd discusses plans for the 2021-2022 school year.
Shepherd says, “Yesterday we announced that we would end our Summer II session four days early based on the recommendation of the Floyd County Health Department. Remember that these days were supplemental to the school year and were not required for students to attend.” Continuing, Shepherd says, “We want to be clear that we want and intend to have in person classes on the first day of school. However, we will plan to follow any mandates should they occur and we will follow guidance from the Center for Disease Control, the Floyd County Health Department and the Kentucky Department of Education.”
Shepherd says, “Our first day of classes for the 2021-2022 school year will be August 30, 2021 for all students in Kindergarten through 12th grade and September 7 for our preschool and Head Start students. Our schools have scheduled Open House events, freshmen orientation events and more. We are moving forward and we want our students back in person, but we will always follow guidelines to keep our students and staff safe.”
Superintendent Shepherd concluded by saying, “Help us return to in person classes on August 30. Let’s work together to see a lower or nonexistent positivity rate in Floyd County. Please get vaccinated and follow guidelines to help protect our students, staff and community.”
