A few days into the school year, Boyle County Schools is making a few adjustments to the calendar and communications tools going forward.
1. Friday, Sept. 3 is now a Staff Development Day. There will be no school for students next Friday. We will have a staff development day to enhance instruction for all students, as we continue to endure quarantines and the pandemic.
2. The COVID-19 dashboard is now live and linked from the Boyle County Schools homepage. Families will be able to check the dashboard as often as they like. It will update in real time, so numbers will fluctuate as cases and quarantines go from active to inactive, etc.
3. There will be no more universal One Calls to families about positive COVID-19 cases in the schools. This only affects universal alerts. Any student or staff member who has been in close contact to a positive COVID-19 person will still receive an individual call, followed by an email. Families can always check the COVID-19 dashboard, if they're curious how the active case/quarantine counts look in each building.
4. An FAQ and other resources are available on the COVID-19 dashboard microsite. Please review these documents as they contain a great deal of valuable information.
If you have any questions, please contact your student's principal.
