Russell County Schools Back-to-School Survey


As Russell County Schools plans for the return to school for the 2020-2021 school year, we need input from our parents/guardians to help in our decision making.  Please take a few minutes to complete this survey.  You are NOT committing to a specific decision.  We realize circumstances, etc. may change between now and our first student day scheduled for August 26, 2020, however, this information will help us as we continue to refine our plan.

The Kentucky Department for Public Health, in collaboration with the Kentucky Department of Education and CDC, has issued guidance for schools on how to safely reopen for the upcoming school year amid the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic. The complete document can be accessed at:  Guidance on Safety Expectations and Best Practices for Kentucky Schools (K-12)

In summation, the main points of the guidelines are as follows:
• Students must wear a mask on buses.
• Students must have a temperature check before entering school.
• Students should adhere to the 6 ft social distancing rule as much as possible.
• Students (1st grade and above) must wear a mask when moving through the 
building or when unable to adhere to social distancing.
• Considerations will be made for students with medical waivers.
• All staff must wear masks.
• Cloth masks are preferred so that they may be laundered and machine dried.

With these points in mind, we would like to have your thoughts and input on the best way for your student to attend Russell County Schools when we reopen on August 26. Please consider the following information as you respond.

1. In-person classes:  A student attending 5 days a week in person.
2. Distance learning:  A student participating in distance learning by logging into a device daily and/or completing assignments sent from the child’s teacher(s).
