MASKS ON

Jefferson County is still in the red... KSB will be masking next week.

03/03/2022

Please read the attached letter regarding updated mask guidance. We will check the map every Thursday and alert staff and families on Friday regarding mask wearing for the following week.

March 3, 2022

Dear KSB/KSD Staff, Students, Families and Communities:

This letter is intended to provide updated information regarding the use of face coverings for students and staff at the Kentucky School for the Blind (KSB) and the Kentucky School for the Deaf (KSD). This plan implements a local approach, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH) metrics serving as a guidepost for decision-making and implementation of masking for the KSB/KSD. KSB/KSD will utilize the DPH Kentucky COVID-19 Community Levels by County map to determine masking requirements for the following week based on the community level. School leaders will review the DPH map every Thursday to decide masking implementation for the following week and will communicate the decision with staff, students, families and communities each Friday.

KSB is located in Jefferson County, Kentucky. Therefore, when the DPH map indicates the community level in Jefferson County is low or medium, masking at KSB will become optional for the following week. If the community level in Jefferson County is high on Thursday, masks for the following week will be required.

KSD is located in Boyle County, Kentucky. Therefore, when the DPH map indicates the community level in Boyle County is low or medium, masking at KSD will become optional for the following week. If the community level in Boyle County is high on Thursday, masks for the following week will be required.

Please direct any questions or concerns to me at (502) 564-4970 ext. 4123 or [email protected].

Dear Wildcat Families
As we start back to school, I wanted to let you know that we are actively monitoring the upswing in Covid-19 cases within the Commonwealth. While we are resuming in-person instruction tomorrow, Tuesday, January 4th, we will continue to keep you updated and informed.

KSB continues to follow the state mandate for everyone inside of the buildings to be properly masked. This is proven to be one of the best approaches to reducing the spread of Covid-19.

Although the CDC recently shared new guidance regarding quarantine protocols, KSB will continue to follow the existing protocols from the Kentucky Department of Public Health of a 10-day quarantine for individuals that test positive for Covid-19. As we receive new information and guidance, we will make sure to update families.

Communication is a priority for us, so I encourage you to check email and social media for the latest updates.

Best regards,

Peggy Sinclair-Morris
Principal
Kentucky School for the Blind
