Ballard County Schools to follow governor's recommendation; will close on March 16
Upon the recommendation of Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear, Ballard County Schools will be closed starting Monday, March 16. Although COVID-19 has not yet been found here, the measure is deemed necessary to slow or stop the virus’ spread into our community.
  • Please access your Infinite Campus Parent Portal as soon as possible. (Remember: Only parents and legal guardians can access this service.) Information over the coming days/weeks will be sent by email and One Call to the contact information in that system, so having correct email and phone numbers for you is crucial. If you need assistance, please contact Student Data Specialist Jennifer Robinson. We are expecting a number of parents to respond, so email is the best way to reach her: Jennifer.robinson@ballard.kyschools.us. If you do not have email, you may call 270-665-8400, ext. 2003, but may be asked to leave a voicemail.
  • Both Stop ‘n’ Go and ASK will have to close, also starting Monday. We’re sorry, but childcare will be unavailable through the school district. If you have younger children, please check into other daycare options as soon as possible.
  • During this closure, all extracurricular activities will be suspended, and no community meetings will be held on our campus. Students and parents will not be permitted to be anywhere on campus, at any time.

Again, more information will follow soon, including about length of closure, staff work days, a student feeding program, and a new non-traditional instruction plan to help keep students from falling behind. Let’s all be patient with each other, as we all begin this uncharted journey together.

More information will follow on Friday, but right now, we ask parents to help us with these important items:
