Daviess County Public Schools will be closed to in-person instruction Tuesday due to COVID-19 isolations and quarantines, district officials announced Sunday. The district will be utilizing their second [email protected] day to allow learning from home.

Schools are also closed Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

“The decision to implement our second [email protected] day is based on the community rate of COVID-19 at an all-time high,” DCPS Superintendent Matt Robbins said in a letter sent to parents/guardians. “The DCPS district is a reflection of the overall status of our community. Accordingly, this has directly impacted our staff – due to isolation and/or quarantines making it difficult for us to provide operational bus transportation and in-person classroom instruction. Use of a [email protected] day allows time for staff to return and allows us to maintain an improved operational status.”

DCPS announced they will be hosting testing clinics on Tuesday. More information, including times and locations, will be shared on Monday as details are confirmed. These free and voluntary clinics will be available to students, their families and siblings.

[email protected] assignments are due within five school days. [email protected] days do not have to be made up at the end of the year.
