The U.S. Census Bureau is cutting its schedule for data collection for the 2020 Census a month short. The door-knocking and ability for households to respond either online, by phone or by mail to the questionnaire will stop at the end of September instead of the end of October.

I have been asked by Magistrate Charlie Beshears to pass along that the Hopkins Co. fiscal court will be distributing free food in the DS town square on Monday, Aug. 10th from 10am until noon or while supplies last. Stop by and see them if you’re interested.

Urgent: DS Panther stakeholders..due to ongoing & escalating COVID19 numbers I will propose at a special board meeting on Monday 8/3 at 6pm at the BOE that we begin the school year on 9/1 with ALL students learning from home via virtual remote instruction. Health & safety are #1.

Remote learning from home will be an option for families and we also plan to have school “in-person” if we can safely do so. At this time we hope that’s 5 days a week or we may have to consider a rotation or as a worst case senario begin the year on full remote/online for every 1

Our DS “Back to School Task Force” just met to begin coming up with solid reopening plans for September 1st. There are an infinite number of questions we’re going to try to come up with positive solutions for. This is new territory for all of us.

DS Panther Family I know wearing a mask is a hot topic & many are either strongly for or strongly against it. Some have health issues & want it for their safety and some can’t wear due to health issues. For us to get back in school & stay in school please wear 1 if you safely can
