OPS has Q&A session about upcoming school year

OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - Owensboro Public School officials took to Facebook Live Tuesday to answer parent questions about the upcoming year.

Superintendent Dr. Matthew Constant answered questions for about an hour, touching on several topics.

Some of the big takeaways from the Q&A session were how they’ll enforce their mask policy. Dr. Matthew Constant said masks will be non-negotiable.

“When a student makes the decision to not wear a mask when we’ve asked them to several times, it not only can also compromise personal health, but it can compromise the health of those around that student,” said Dr. Constant.

Another question asked today is how parents would handle child care as some students will stay home through part of the week. Dr. Constant telling families they’re working on a plan.

“...there are so many partners willing to step up within this community willing to step up, but we are working with them to get a plan for some families,” said Dr. Constant.
