The Adair County school district is working to implement a plan that will allow continuing educational services for students as they remain home due to cautionary measures to limit the spread of Coronavirus.
Gov. Andy Beshear has asked schools to close and the Adair County school district will be closed until April 10. Teachers, administrators and staff will still be working through April 3, however.
Parents should expect a telephone call from their children’s teachers. The calls will come from a number out of town so parents are asked to take those calls, possibly from the Frankfort, Louisville, LaGrange, Shepherdsville area. The parents can then use that number to communicate with teachers. Teachers will be calling daily from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. from March 17 – April 3 to check on the student’s progress and to help with any assignment.
DISTRICT PROVIDING MEALS
The school district will also begin providing meals as of Tuesday. Meals can be picked up at the Adair County Primary Center from 10 a.m. until noon outside the cafeteria area. You should remain in your car and meals will be handed to you.
The meal will include a lunch and a cereal and juice that can be eaten for breakfast the following day.
Anyone who cannot pick up the meals and requires delivery can call the school district at 270-384-2476, extension 2003 or 2004. If the call is not answered leave a message with the parent’s name, phone number, home address and the number of children. Please do this IMMEDIATELY so delivery can be planned.
Academic packets are being prepared and will be delivered by the bus driver or school staff starting Wednesday and all should be delivered by Friday. If no one is home, the packet will be placed into the mailbox. Packets are also available at the central office, 1204 Greensburg St., from 8 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
Packets must be completed in their entirety and returned to school within two days of school resuming. These packets will be documented so that 14 days can be considered instructional days and these missed days will not have to be made up.
A call went out to the district’s call list of parents Friday evening and Superintendent Dr. Pamela Stephens noted that this is new to everyone. She asked that everyone be thinking about one another and to search their hearts for kindness.
She also asked that everyone pray for the community, the country and the world.
