HYBRID PLAN CONTINUES THROUGH FEBRUARY 
The Bowling Green City School District plans to continue the Purple / Gold Schedule through at least February 28, 2021, including Presidents Day as an in-person (Purple Schedule) and Virtual Academy school day. The district will continue to monitor local COVID19 data, tracking cases and quarantines, and will make a decision for the March schedule in the next few weeks.

Updated 2020-2021 Calendar
 

SNOW DAYS = NTI DAYS for 2021
Our school district rarely misses days for snow, however for the current year, if determined that our schools should be closed due to inclement weather, we will utilize NTI or non-traditional instructional days and employees will not report to school buildings. This decision is based on the current year circumstances only, and not the end of traditional snow days.
 

CURRENT COVID-19 DATA
Our district updates COVID19 data daily, including cases and quarantines by school, reported for both employees and students. Currently, our district has confirmed a total of 30 active cases of COVID-19, and 64 individuals are quarantined due to exposure.
