Owensboro Middle School Returns to Virtual Learning
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused Owensboro Middle School to transition back to virtual only learning.
In announcing the change Thursday, the district said the closure is due to an increase in the number of students and staff who have to isolate, affecting the school’s ability to maintain operations.
It’s part of the roller coaster of scheduling that schools across Kentucky, and the nation, have to deal with in response to the pandemic.
The district began this month with virtual learning, then transitioned to a hybrid schedule with students divided into “A” and “B” groups, with each group attending in-person two days a week.
Owensboro Middle School is planning to have students continue virtual only learning through Jan. 29 and return to in-person Feb. 1.
The change does not affect other schools in the district.
