NOTIFICATION OF POSITIVE COVID-19 TEST AT OAKVIEW ELEMENTARY

This is notification that a staff member at Oakview Elementary school has tested positive for COVID-19. The COVID-19 exposure happened in a kindergarten classroom. We are keeping this individual in our thoughts and are hoping they have a speedy recovery.

As required, our district has reported this information to our local health department. We are working with the Ashland Boyd County Health Department and are taking all recommended steps to ensure the safety of our children and staff. At present, three staff members and sixteen students have been quarantined by the health department.  Additional steps the district is implementing include: the individuals will not return to our school until they have completed isolation procedures for COVID-19; and the building will undergo thorough cleaning and sanitation.

Kentucky Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) Food Benefits Update!!!

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, food security continues to be a top priority for many Kentucky families. Last school year, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved Pandemic-EBT to allow families of Kentucky students to receive money for groceries to replace meals missed at school due to distance learning during the pandemic.

The USDA has now approved Kentucky to provide Pandemic-EBT to students for August and September 2020. This round of benefits will be available to any Kentucky student that receives free lunches at school through the National School Lunch Program. Eligible students will receive benefits for school days spent distance learning in August and September due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What to Expect from the Ashland Independent Food Service Department!!!

As a result of COVID-19, the Ashland Independent Food Service Department has experienced many changes and continues to evolve as we maneuver through these challenging times.  We want to keep parents abreast of these revisions as they occur.  The USDA governs all local school nutrition programs and sets guidelines we must follow.  Currently as a result of lifted restrictions, we are implementing the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) which is very different than the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program we typically follow during a “normal” school year.
