Covington schools working to help students during closure

WLWT Story

As schools across the area remain closed, districts are facing challenges making sure children continue learning.

Staff members at John G. Carlisle school in Covington are working to make sure kids get what they need during this uncertain time.

The halls are empty and classrooms quiet, but work is still being done.

"It's been really great just to see how everybody's come together and we're still working as a team, even though some are remote and some are here at school," said Principal Tara Bell.

Kids were sent home with paperwork to keep them working and on track. The district had a few days to put together a plan and make it work.

"Right away we had to start developing work for our students that we knew they could do from home," said Assistant Superintendent Scott Alter.

Moving learning from school to home means challenges because not every student has a computer or internet access.

The district is also handing out learning packets. There's a daily food distribution, and work is underway to expand Wi-Fi networks at the buildings to improve internet access.

Bell wants her Covington parents and students to know that everyone is in this together, and they'll overcome challenges.

"Our teachers are going to reach out. They're going to call you. They're going to talk to you through email," Bell said.

Those distributions happen daily in Covington, from 7:30 a.m. through 8 a.m. and from 11:30 a.m. through noon at all of the district's elementary schools.
