CCS Weekly Update - May 6, 2021
Greetings Campbell County Families,
Presented below is my weekly update, providing important information about our COVID numbers, school status and other items of interest. I would like to invite you to read this information at your earliest convenience.
Teacher/ Staff Appreciation Week:
This week is teacher and staff appreciation week. I want to open this week's note by giving a huge shoutout to the nearly 750 regular employees who make this ship go! The past 12 months have been very demanding and very trying for every part of our operation. I could not be more proud of the way in which our team has navigated COVID!! Everyone has been patient, flexible and willing to go the extra mile. Please join me in thanking our Campbell County School employees for a job well done!!!!
Congratulations to our 2021 CCHS Governor's Scholars!!

The Governor's Scholars Program strives to enhance Kentucky's next generation of civic and economic leaders. Established in 1983, the program provides academic and personal growth through the balance of a strong liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and residential life experience.

2021 Education Excellence Awards:
Two weeks ago, I shared the names and pictures of our staff and students who received awards for their excellence in education by the Northern Kentucky Education Council and the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. The streamed video of the awards was published last night and is available at this link.
County COVID Incidence Update
Both our local and state COVID incidence numbers increased a minimal amount this week. Based on yesterday's numbers, our county COVID rate increased slightly, from 4.6 to 4.8 incidents per 100,000 people. The current overall state rate is 11.4/100,000, an increase from 10.4/100,000 last week.
District COVID Data - Current:
Listed below is our updated positive/quarantine list, by school. Staff positives remain at zero but we did have a few, non-vaccinated staff members who had to quarantine due to an exposure to a positive student. Student positives decreased from 6 to 5 but the number of quarantined students jumped from 33 to 53 this week.
Thank you and have a great day!
