 This story is a part of a series WKMS is publishing this week about school reopenings in west Kentucky amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kentucky schools dismissed in-person class for students  and opted for virtual learning when COVID-19 was declared a national emergency in March. On August 10, Governor Andy Beshear suggested schools wait to resume in-person learning until the end of September. However, some school administrators and teachers believe their districts have taken the extra steps to safely allow students to return to a classroom sooner.

Two Midwestern universities announced on Tuesday that they will be modifying their fall plans because of the coronavirus pandemic. The University of Notre Dame is moving all undergraduate instruction online for two weeks, and Michigan State University is going fully remote for the semester.
