Covington Public Schools return to in-person class

COVINGTON, Ky. (FOX19) - Monday was the first day of in-person classes for Covington Independent Public Schools since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Schools will use an A/B hybrid model, according to Superintendent Alvin Garrison.

Students will be assigned to the A group or B group, which will determine what days a student will be at school for in-person learning.

Those in the A group will be at their school on Mondays and Tuesdays, Garrison said.

B group students will have in-person classes on Thursdays and Fridays, according to the superintendent.

Students will continue virtual learning on the days they do not attend in-person classes.

Parents are asked to call their child’s school if they are not sure which group their child is in.

Preschool students will attend morning and afternoon sessions Monday through Thursday.

Garrison says bus routes and the school day will continue as they did in a normal year.

If a child tests positive for COVID-19, the superintendent says parents must report it to the school within 24 hours of getting the results.
