Return to School Update 11/29/2020
Hi OCS families,
By now you probably have seen where the courts have upheld the appeal filed by the Governor that overturns the recent ruling allowing for religious schools to be excluded from his executive order, meaning that we are back to where we started last week – no in person all day instruction for our students.
We are of course very disappointed in this decision, and will continue to look at every opportunity to return to in person learning just as quickly as possible.
Here is what this means for our OC families – for the week of November 30 –
- Students in Kindergarten through 3rd grade will begin targeted instruction, as per the material emailed to parents.
- Students in grades 4 through 12 will have virtual instruction.
Please note: changes could occur to this schedule and will be communicated as quickly as possible.
David Kessler, Superintendent for Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Owensboro said “We are disappointed because this decision contradicts the recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and our own school data.” He went on to say, “We will be carefully monitoring the legal proceedings and continue our discussions with our legal counsel and the Catholic Conference of KY to determine our future actions.”
