Warrick County School Corporation releases back-to-school plan


Warrick County School Corporation (WCSC) district leaders released a detailed back-to-school plan on Friday.

The WCSC plan uses a three-tier system that depends on the current COVID-19 conditions in each school / county, indicated by Green, Yellow, and Red.

Currently, WCSC plans to return to school in person on Wednesday, August 11, as part of the green level of its plan.

  • Under the Green level, Kindergarten to Grade 12 students will be physically present at the school.
  • In the Yellow level, students will participate in blended learning, with some students learning virtually while others are in school.
  • Under the Red level of the system, no students will be physically in the building, all K-12 learning is done virtually at home.

Face coverings will remain optional throughout WCSC, with the exception of students and bus drivers who are on a school bus going to or from school. WCSC says its mask requirements are subject to change based on the release of new national / local guidelines.

Parents are also urged to screen their children for any symptoms of COVID-19 before sending them to school and to keep them home if they have symptoms.

Other protective measures will be in place inside the classroom, such as hand sanitizer, physically distant seats, etc.
