Students in Dawson Spring head back to school virtually Tuesday

DAWSON SPRINGS, Ky. (WFIE) - Students in Dawson Springs returned to school virtually Tuesday.

Officials say they will assess COVID-19 cases in the area every four to six weeks to discuss whether or not to bring students back for in-person learning.

The superintendent stresses they want to be able to get students and faculty back in school this year, but until they see a decrease in cases in Kentucky, the virtual option will be the safest route this year.

Officials also say they’ll be providing WiFi hotspots starting on September 10.
