Owensboro Catholic Schools return to in-person learning

OWENSBORO, Ky (WFIE) - Owensboro Catholic Schools returned to in-person learning five days a week.

Governor Beshear recommends districts in the “red zone” hold off on bringing students back into schools until January 11.

That way districts get a better idea of community spread after the holidays.

However, Owensboro Catholic spokespeople say because they’ve succeeded with students safely learning this school year, they decided to bring the kids in Tuesday, launching their second semester.

“We are thrilled to have the kids back. Before Christmas break, we had a few of them in for sessions, but seeing all of them this morning, they seem like they’ve grown five inches since we saw them last,” said Tracy Conkright, principal at Owensboro Catholic 4-6 campus.

Owensboro Catholic spokespeople say they’re hoping guidelines this semester will be less restrictive, and they can start implementing more normalcy back into their curriculum.

They say they’re prepared for whatever comes their way during this new semester.
