TRI-STATE (WFIE) - Several Tri-State schools are still learning virtually Wednesday.

In Indiana, Pike County Schools are using an e-learning day due to staff members who are sick or in quarantine.

The same goes for several Kentucky districts.

Daviess County Public Schools are using a third DCPS at home day Wednesday as officials point to staffing shortages, absences and quarantines due to COVID-19.

Free meals will be available for kids under 18. Meal pick-ups go from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Hopkins County students are also learning virtually again Wednesday and will still need to finish assignments from home.

School nurses will also be available at several schools by appointment to test students or staff who have symptoms. You can find more information on their Facebook page.

Staffing shortages also continue in Union County. Students are learning virtually Wednesday, too.

Officials say there will be a drive-up community testing site opening.

It’s at the Morganfield Crossfit Gym on Padgett Street from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. You need to register before you go.

That site will be open Monday through Friday until further notice.

The plan earlier this week was to return in person on Thursday, hoping the five-day stretch gives staff time to recover.

Henderson County Schools will be on NTI days for the rest of the week due to the winter weather forecast as well as the staff absenteeism across the district.

School officials say grab and go meals will be available on Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at AB Chandler, Jefferson, Bend Gate and Spottsville elementary schools.

They say this is for all schools in the district.
