The decision was made by the school district due to a large number of positive cases. BCPS said several schools are facing large numbers of staff being out, making it difficult to cover classes.
BCPS said the goal is to use Friday as an NTI day along with the upcoming three-day weekend for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday in hopes of avoiding to need additional NTI in the future.
Students will return in-person for instruction on Thursday, participate in NTI on Friday, and then return back to in-person on Tuesday.
Several other school districts in Kentucky and Southern Indiana have also announced the temporary move to virtual learning due to COVID.
JCPS made the announcement on Tuesday the district would be moving to NTI for four days. Borden-Henryville Schools also announced they would be moving to NTI until after the holiday weekend.
