Owensboro Public Schools will be returning to in-person learning on an A/B hybrid model starting Thursday, according to district officials.

OPS released a letter with full details from Superintendent Matthew Constant.

Constant noted that OPS did not have a single case of person-to-person spread of COVID-19 when they were previously in the A/B model.

Constant said it is the district’s intention to remain on the A/B schedule as long as they are able to maintain daily operations.

He said there may be occasions when only one school may need to be closed, and it could be necessary for the entire district to return to complete virtual learning if COVID-19 cases numbers pose a risk.

All safety guidelines and procedures will remain in effect at all OPS facilities.

Daviess County Public Schools
DCPS previously announced they will return to the classroom in two phases in mid-January. Elementary and middle schools will return to the A/B hybrid schedule on Jan. 11, with high schools returning to A/B on Jan. 19.

Local private schools
Owensboro Catholic Schools, St. Mary of the Woods and Trinity High schools, as well as Heritage Christian School and Grace Christian Academy, were all scheduled to returned in full to in-person learning Jan. 5.
