Athletics Update: Due to recent cancellations, we have rescheduled some games and some adjustments to our 2021-22 basketball schedules. Please see our remaining basketball games below that have been updated.
Because of the continuing increase in positive COVID cases, both in our community and in our buildings, Ballard County Schools is scheduling two more Distance Learning days for Thursday, Jan. 20, and Friday, Jan. 21. Students should follow the same plan as they have for the first part of this week.
Ballard County Schools, in conjunction with Wild Health, will continue its free “test-to-stay” program on campus on Thursday, Jan. 20. However, due to an expected high volume of students and staff coming in to test, they are asking for a little assistance.
- If you are coming in to test, PLEASE wear a high-quality, well-fitting mask while you stand in line and wait to be tested. Masks only may be removed while test samples are being obtained.
- If you have not done so already, please complete the online consent form found here: https://airtable.com/shrq25Nk5yEknbrNB. This will eliminate the need to fill out the form while at the testing site, and streamline the process for everyone.
Ballard County Schools has updated its operations plan for COVID testing and quarantines, using recommendations from the Kentucky Department for Public Health, along with federal guidelines.
As of Jan. 13, procedures will be as follows:
The Ballard County Board of Education approved the district calendar for 2022-23 at its December regular meeting. The annual Bomber Back-to-School Bash will be Aug. 6. The first day for students is Aug. 12; final day is set for May 19, 2023. Fall break will be Oct. 3-7, with spring break April 3-7, 2023. Thanksgiving break will be Nov. 23-25. Students will be dismissed at the end of the day Dec. 19 for winter break, and classes will reconvene Jan. 2, 2023.
