Just 2 weeks away from their start day, a local school district has changed the day students return. Meade County Schools announced Tuesday that the district is shifting course, with the Board of Education approving the new start date of August 25th. In a Facebook video posted yesterday morning, new Superintendent Mark Martin outlined the reason for the change.
“We must adjust to the virus,” he said, “the virus won’t adjust to us.”
Like many other district’s, meade will offer online, as well as in-person instruction when school returns. Meade county will return to school the same day as Elizabethtown Independent Schools, but at 50% capacity as part of a phased return.
