Covington Will Reopen With In-person and Remote Learning

School Reopening Plan

Dear Families:

For the past several months, Covington Independent Public Schools has been planning for the start of the 2020-21 school year. Because of COVID-19, we will begin school on September 1 in an unprecedented way that includes new health protocols, physical distancing and more. The Covington Board of Education approved the district’s reopening plan at its board meeting on July 23.

I am pleased to announce the board approved the Hybrid Model, which features in-person and remote learning. The plan calls for a soft launch, which means for five weeks, 50 percent of our students (Group A) will attend school on Mondays and Tuesdays; Wednesdays are planning days for teachers and on Thursdays and Fridays, the other half of our students (Group B) will attend school. While students are at home, they will engage in remote learning. When school is in session, students and staff must wear masks during transitioning periods and when social distancing is not possible. Temperatures will be taken of all students and staff upon arrival. After five weeks, the district will assess the plan to determine if it meets the needs of students and staff.

Under this plan, parents who are not comfortable with their children attending in-person classes can select the remote learning option. Parents making this choice must complete and return the enclosed application form to enroll their children in remote learning. Please note, parents and students must commit to at least 18 weeks of remote learning when selecting this option.

After the district determines the number of students opting for remote learning only, we will then provide more details to families that include information on scheduling, which groups the students will be in, new requirements and school operations. Updated information also will be posted on the district’s website,

Should circumstances change, Covington Schools will revisit options. Please note, the well-being of our 3,800 students and 600 staff will always be our top priority.

This plan was prepared with guidance from the Kentucky Department of Education, the Northern Kentucky Health Department and Centers for Disease Control. In addition, we took into account the voices of our families, teachers and staff through surveys that they completed. Our overarching goal is to provide high-quality instruction to all Covington students whether in person or remotely. We know that you have many questions and we will do our best to answer. We most certainly thank you for your continued support and for your patience during these unprecedented times.

Warmest Regards,

Alvin L. Garrison Superintendent
