Pike schools to use NTI days next week

PIKEVILLE, Ky. — With cases of COVID-19 continuing to surge locally, Pike County Schools announced Friday that schools will move to non-traditional instruction from Sept. 7 to Sept. 10. There is no school Sept. 6, due to Labor Day.

Over the next week, students will be expected to complete assignments in the Canvas course management system.

This is just the latest measure undertaken by the district. Classes were canceled last week due to the pandemic, and the district announced a virtual option for students earlier on Friday. Days missed during last week’s closure will be made up at the end of the year.

During the state legislative session in Frankfort earlier this year, lawmakers capped each school system’s number of NTI days at 10. After next week, Pike County will have six remaining for use during the pandemic and winter weather.
