Christian County Public Schools announced Friday that it will extend non-traditional instruction through next week.

The district referred to three factors in its decision: Jennie Stuart Health is currently at its capacity limit for patients, CCPS staff currently have 82 positive COVID-19 cases or are in quarantine and the “dramatic increase in the number of positive cases in our community.”

District teachers will continue working from their school buildings while facilitating online instruction.

Sports will resume practice Monday, Jan. 11, but games will not take place until after Jan. 15.

Meals will also be delivered by bus across the county from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Meal delivery schedules are available at

Virtual Learning Academy students will continue to receive 7-day meal bundles each Friday at their assigned school from11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
