KSD to offer traditional and virtual learning for fall
The following is a statement released by Kosciusko Superitendent of Schools Billy Ellzey regarding the fall start of the coming school year:
"Living the realities of COVID-19 in our country and world has been unbelievable, almost surreal. The topic is widely debated, and it feels like we are going in circles with a multitude of facts and opinions.
Speaking as the Superintendent of the Kosciusko School District, we recognize the emotional toll on our students over the past few months. All of our students have been affected by school closure and COVID-19. As the superintendent of this great school district, I want our students and families to know we are here to support them during these times of crisis.
Plans are currently being made for the 2020-2021 school year. As of today, June 23, 2020, the Kosciusko School District plans to offer 'traditional school' Monday through Friday as well as 'virtual classes,' for the upcoming school year. Our goal is to provide the best education to our students, and to also make them feel safe while maintaining a great education experience.
As parents of children that are enrolled in the Kosciusko School District, please consider both options and choose the one that you are most comfortable with for your child/children. We will be offering more information in the upcoming weeks on the choices and all the safety protocols we will have in place.
In closing, I want you to know that we are here to support you and to offer your children the best education possible. This takes us all working together. Thank you for your cooperation. We are looking forward to a great 2020-2021 school year."
