Edmonson County Schools plan a phase-in to in-person learning 4 days a week

BROWNSVILLE Ky.- Another local school district has announced the plan to step closer to normalcy.

Edmonson County School District superintendent Brian Alexander made the announcement that a phase-in process to move to in-person learning four days a week will take place.

On March 15, students of Kyrock and South Edmonson Elementary will return, followed by the Edmonson County 5-6 center and Edmonson County Middle School on March 22. Finally, Edmonson County High School will come in on March 29.

Fridays will be used as a day for school staff to heavily sanitize the buildings and deliver meals, so all students will learn from home once a week.

“We are very excited to have our students back and be working toward what we’ve always considered to be normal. It’s a new normal for us, but it’s closer to what we’re all accustomed to, and we’re extremely excited about it,” Edmonson County School district superintendent Brian Alexander said.

Students who choose to learn virtually every day will still be given the option to do so, even when this phase-in process begins.
