Gallatin County Official Press Release Regarding School Closure due to COVID-19

Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

Yesterday Governor Andy Beshear conducted a conference call with all superintendents in Kentucky as well as the Interim Commissioner of Education, the Commissioner of Public Health and several representatives from the Kentucky Department of Education. The Governor has also held conference calls with all Kentucky Judge Executives.

Today, Gallatin County administrators and the school board chairman held a joint meeting with the Gallatin County Judge Executive, Emergency Management Director, the school nurse, and representatives from Gallatin County Fiscal Court and Three Rivers Health Department. Amid the ongoing concern about COVID-19, we understand our shared responsibility to be proactive to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, staff, parents, and all Gallatin County citizens.

Based on the current information about COVID-19, Gallatin County Schools will be implementing our NTI (Non-Traditional Instruction) Plan in accordance with KRS 158.070(9). Beginning Monday, March 16th, all instruction will be delivered by means of each school’s NTI assignments. NTI work and expectations were sent home with students today. Staff members will report to work as normal and will be available to assist students via email, phone, text, etc… All schools have prepared quality work that will ensure instruction will continue during the unprecedented situation. The intent is for students to return to the regular classroom on April 13th.

During this time, all buildings, equipment, furniture and buses will be disinfected and sanitized with cleaning chemicals recommended by the CDC.

The cafeterias will be preparing food for distribution. Food will be available for pick up along with the buses delivering food to predetermined sites throughout the county. Our transportation and food service departments are coordinating these sites; they will be announced by the end of this week.

All athletic events, including practices, and field trips are cancelled during this closure.

There is no confirmed case of COVID-19 currently in Gallatin County. The decision to close our buildings is an effort to help mitigate the spread of this virus. Student and staff safety is our first priority and we believe this closure is necessary.

For the most up to date information, on the COVID-19 crisis in Kentucky, please refer to www.kycovid19.ky.gov. You can also call the hotline at 1-800-722-5725.

Thank you,

Larry B. Hammond
