Welcome to Pike County Schools
Due to rising COVID cases, Pike County Schools will be closed this Friday, August 20th to allow for the deep cleaning and sanitization of all campuses beginning Friday and extending through the weekend. Extracurricular and scheduled co-curricular activities may continue Friday and through the weekend unless they are limited by COVID restrictions.
Regular bus routes will not be run. However, bus routes for all Academy and Dual Enrollment programs will run as scheduled. Students dual enrolled in a post-secondary institution should attend their classes Friday.
Classes will resume Monday, August 23rd. As indicated in the published school calendar, this will be a Virtual Learning Day. Students will not attend classes on campus but are expected to fully participate in live online sessions and complete all schoolwork assigned by teachers through Schoology. Directions and the schedules for student participation in the Virtual Learning Day will be forthcoming from the local schools.
If you need technical assistance, please complete this TECHNOLOGY ASSISTANCE FORM, or you may call/text 334-672-0463. Assistance will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once you have completed this form we ask for patience as we evaluate the needs of our students. We will respond to each request.
Breakfast and lunch will be served curbside at each campus for interested students from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM Monday, August 23rd. Breakfast and lunch will not be served on Friday, August 20th.
Traditional in-school classes will resume Tuesday, August 24th. On this date, a strict Health Screening process will again be instituted at all schools and worksites for students and employees. Parents should not send students to school who do not feel well or who have any COVID symptoms. Visitors will not be allowed except under the provisions outlined in the Pike County School’s Reopening Plan. As a reminder, masks are required at all schools and worksites.
A vaccine clinic sponsored by Dr. Elizabeth Dawson and the Charles Henderson Child Health Care Center will be held on September 2nd. Parents of students 12 and above should contact their school nurse if interested.
It should also be noted that the Pike County Schools are committed to providing face-to-face learning in a safe or orderly manner. The system is not providing a COVID-driven virtual option this school year. The system is providing a Homeschool option for parents who preregistered this summer. Parents who are interested in this option for their child should submit the name of their child to be placed on a waiting list. Shifts from traditional to the Homeschool Program will only be allowed as openings arise. Please contact 334-566-1850 if you would like to be added to a waiting list.
Dr. Mark Bazzell, Superintendent
