Hardin County Schools reopening date extended to April 27

The closure of Hardin County Schools has been extended following a recommendation by Gov. Bill Lee due to continued concerns of the COVID-19 virus.
“This being the recommendation, all schools in Hardin County will remain closed through Friday, April 24,” Hardin County Schools Director Michael Davis said Tuesday.
Students are now expected to return to school on Monday, April 27. Classes were previously scheduled to resume April 6.
Davis says HCS will continue to provide meals for children throughout this time and for now will continue to distribute at the 11 designated sites on each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 11 a.m. until noon.
The sites are Whites Community Center, Walnut Grove Community Center, Olive Hill Fire Hall, Pickwick Southside School, Shiloh at old Ed Shaw’s Restaurant, Crump City Hall, Morris Chapel Fire Hall, Saltillo Community Center, Cerro Gordo Community Center, Northside Elementary and Parris South Elementary.
Davis said HCS expects to provide online educational resources in coming days for parents and students to use while schools are closed.
“It is my hope that all of you are making the best out of our spring break week and continue to stay safe during this unprecedented time,” Davis said in a letter to Hardin County students and parents.
