Paducah Public Schools to Offer In-Person Four Day Week Beginning March 8

Students who attend Paducah Public Schools will have the option to attend  in-person for a four-day school week beginning March 8.
The Paducah Board of Education voted unanimously to make the change after reviewing surveys from parents and teachers and the data regarding COVID-19 rates of infection in the region at a special called meeting on February 26.

Students who choose the in-person option will attend school four days per week. There will be one day of virtual learning per week. The board asked that faculty and parents be surveyed to determine whether it would be best to keep the virtual day on Wednesday or move it to Friday. 

Virtual students will continue to have the option to stay all virtual.

NTI Days Added to School Calendar for February 25 and 26

The Paducah Board of Education has voted to change Thursday, February 25 and Friday, February 26 on the school calendar from In-Person to Non-Traditional Instruction (Virtual) days.  


PPS faculty and staff will receive the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on February 24.  The second dose of the vaccine has typically created harsher side effects than the first dose. Changing February 25 and 26 to NTI days will allow faculty and staff who experience harsher side effects from the second dose to work from home.


The Paducah Board of Education began discussions about allowing students to attend in-person four days per week at the February 15 meeting. Those discussions will continue.

School Schedule for February 10 -12 with Pending Inclement Weather

The freezing rain/wintry mix that is predicted to arrive Wednesday, February 10 may impact classes on Thursday, February 11. Here is the schedule for all Paducah Public Schools for the next few days. 

Wednesday, February 10, will be a Virtual Day for all students, in keeping with our regular schedule. 

Thursday, February 11, is the day most likely to be impacted by bad weather.  

If it is unsafe  to have in-person instruction on Thursday, we will have virtual instruction for all students. 

If the ice and freezing rain misses our area, we will have school according to our regular schedule. 

If it is safe to go to school, we may use the snow routes for our buses. If your child is a bus rider, review the snow routes for our buses here to make sure your child knows where to go meet the bus.

PPS Spring Semester Begins January 4 with In-Person Instruction Beginning January 11

Dear PPS parents and students,

We are looking forward to welcoming our students back for in-person instruction. However, since McCracken County continues to be a “red county” based on its COVID-19 incidence rate, our district will have to use the most restrictive schedule to comply with the state “Healthy at Schools” plan and the recommendations in Governor Beshear’s executive order issued on December 18. 

Paducah Public Schools will begin our spring semester on Monday, January 4, 2021.
