Superintendent Danny Adkins gives office hour and contact information for central office and schools until our scheduled return on April 6, 2020.


Adkins comments, “We wanted to put more information in your hands regarding the next two weeks. We also ask that you be patient as we are trying to work out any issues as soon as they arise. Remember this is our first time having an extended school closure with NTI and feeding students.” Speaking of the school nutrition program Adkins comments, “Today was our first day of our drive-through meals at our schools. Please remember that any child, ages 1 to 18, can come and pick up a meal.”


Continuing, Adkins said, “Our buses will head out for their evening runs soon and they will have packets for students who need a hard copy rather than our online platform and they will have snacks. If your child does not ride a bus to school, but needs a hard copy of the NTI work, please call the school your child attends. Our buses will be out every day with snacks for children and we will start our Mobile Route as soon as possible.”


“Our Family Resource and Youth Service Centers will be open on Fridays to get food backpacks ready for the weekend, but please call the school if you need anything before then. Our administrators, custodians and cooks will be at our schools but not all of them will be there at the same time. We are working to have as few people inour buildings as possible as we are trying to observe the social distancing as much as possible.” Adkins says,


“Please know you can call our schools and our central office location just as you always have. Starting tomorrow (Tuesday, March 17), we will have modified hours at these locations, as we will begin teleworking in all situations possible. Our office hours at these buildings will be from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. That’s the best time to call us with questions or to make appointments to come by.”


As for visiting Floyd County Schools, Adkins says, “Please know that we’re asking as few peoples possible to be in our buildings. For example, if you need a certificate of age, then call and schedule an appointment. We will work to have the certificate ready for you at your appointment time and we will simply bring it out to you.”


Adkins closed saying, “We’ve been asked about our long term plans and here’s where we are. Right now, we will plan to return to school April 6, 2020. We’re following the Governor’s and the Kentucky Department of Education’s recommendations. We will update you if we make changes and ask that you please be patient as we try to do the best for our students and staff. Lastly, I want to send a huge thank you to our people. From volunteering to ride buses to offering to help any students with questions, please know that you have an awful lot of people who love and are concerned about your children. I am beyond thankful to work in Floyd County Schools.”
