Per Kentucky Regulatory Statue (KRS) 158.160 parents and guardians are obligated to notify the student’s school if the student has a medical condition that threatens the safety of the student or others in the school. This KRS has been effective since 2005, but at this time we would like to remind our families of the importance in reporting positive COVID-19 tests results. Reporting to schools should occur regardless of the instructional method of your student. Additionally 902 KAR 2:220E State of Emergency states the individual responsible for a student shall notify the student’s school within twenty-four (24) hours following the positive diagnosis of the virus that causes COVID-19.
