Superintendent of Meade County Schools Dr. Mark Martin posted a video to the District's Facebook page on Friday to highlight some great news from the first week of school.
"It was so nice to see your child's smiling face on our virtual formats this week. They were so excited to return to learning, it gave great energy to our teachers as well."
Primary and elementary teachers had orientation this week, where students and parents had an opportunity to meet their child's teacher face-to-face in a safe learning environment. Students began learning procedures this week that will help them engage in virtual learning over the next month.
Martin says the district served nearly 8,000 meals this week.
"I'm so proud of the efforts of our staff members, our cafeteria staff members, our bus drivers, all the people that helped make sure this was a success at all of our various feeding sites," said Martin.
He said that all of the employees in the district worked hard this summer to meet the needs of children, and he's proud of their efforts. They have truly gone above and beyond for this community that we all love, Martin said.
Additionally, Martin previewed what's to come. He said that instructional opportunities will increase next week for all students.
"The first week of school is always about teaching procedures and routines," said Martin. "The second week of school begins to add new layers of instructional exposure. We will continue to build the foundation that was laid during these first four days."
He asked parents to establish routines for their child's school day, continue to praise their efforts, and ask the district for help when needed. He said that teachers are there to help; all a parent has to do is reach out.
