Carrollton, Ky. - March 20, 2020 - Schools in the Carroll County School District will remain closed for a week beyond April 13, making April 20 the first day for students to return to school. In a March 20 conference call with superintendents, Gov. Beshear requested that schools remain closed until April 20 as a result of the spread of COVID-19, also known as “the coronavirus.”

 

“I am disappointed that we will remain out of school for another week, but this is the right thing to do,” said Superintendent Danny Osborne. “Safety is and always will be our first priority. Our teachers, staff members and parents are working hard each day to ensure that our students continue to learn during this closure. I am proud of the work that everyone is doing, and we will continue to deliver meals to our students as we are doing now.”

 

Mondays through Fridays, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., staff members are providing meals for students at eleven locations in Carroll County:
