CCS Weekly COVID Update - April 8, 2021
Greetings Campbell County Families,
Welcome back from Spring Break! I hope everyone had an opportunity to enjoy our fantastic weather with family and friends! Presented below is my weekly COVID update, providing important information about our COVID numbers, school status and other items of interest. I would like to invite you to read this information at your earliest convenience.
County COVID Incidence Update:
Based on yesterday's numbers, our county COVID rate is 5.8 incidents per 100,000 people, down from 7.0 last week! The current overall state rate is 9.7/100,000, an improvement from 10.9 /100,000 last week. Both our local numbers and the state numbers continue to improve!
District COVID Data - Current:
Listed below is our updated positive/quarantine list, by school. Staff positives and quarantines continue to be ZERO. Student positives and quarantines have fallen again this week, mirroring the countywide reduction. Positives are down to 2 from 4 last week. The number of quarantined students have dropped from 29 to 16. We were at 41 two weeks ago!
Current School Programming:
The five-day model continues.
I want to remind everyone again this week that we have opened up online enrollment for the 2021-22 school year. If you know of someone who would like to register their child to attend Campbell County Schools next year, please share this link with them and encourage them to complete the process as soon as possible https://www.campbellcountyschools.org/Content2/registration21
You can access this link via our district home webpage, as depicted below:
Senate Bill 128:
For those of you not familiar with Senate Bill 128, this is the new law that will allow each local Board of Education to consider whether to permit a "supplemental year" to be provided for students whose parents request it. The district received a guidance document from the Kentucky Department of Education on Monday and we are expecting a guidance document to be issued by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association tomorrow afternoon. We are in the process of reviewing these documents and having internal conversations and I expect to have detailed information to share with you next week.
A Reminder - Retirements and Help Wanted
Due to the announced pending retirements of our district HR Supervisor Diana Heidelberg and Susan Prather the administrative assistant to the superintendent, I have two very important positions that are coming vacant in my office this summer. I would like to encourage you to share this information with anyone who may be interested in applying for either of these positions. Application information may be accessed at this link: https://campbellcountyschools.tedk12.com/hire/index.aspx Please note that I am working through some revisions with the Board of Education on the Human Resources position, but I wanted to get these opportunities out there for individuals to consider and share!
I would also like to encourage community members to look through our list of other open positions, available throughout our district using the same link above. Campbell County Schools is a great place to work, with competitive salaries, benefits and work schedules. Come and join our team!
Thank you and have a great day!
