Letter from Dr. McComas Regarding 2021-22 NTI Days

December 7, 2021:

CCPS Families,

Thank you for your support and sharing our post this morning about the power outage. As our leaders work with teachers and staff to prepare for the crazy Kentucky winter weather we all know we may experience, we need your help too. It’s very important to keep your phone number, email, and address updated so that we properly contact you for school closing or other important information. Reach out to your child’s teacher or secretary to make sure this is on file. You can also send in a note with your kiddo.

This year, CCPS will utilize the NTI (Non-Traditional Instruction) that the state has provided. Originally these were in place for bad weather, but then transitioned to COVID days. Our goal is to be in school; however, if the weather dictates, we will utilize NTI when possible. This is new for CCPS as we only had snow days in the past.

Our leaders and staff are finalizing plans and developing work so that we can be prepared for the possible use of NTI. Please be watching our Facebook page, website, school social media, and good ole info from your kiddo…We will release more information next week, but want you to be expecting it.

We will also have our revised winter weather plan for communication purposes posted for your reference too.

Please share this message to help spread the word on the importance of contact information being up to date.

School Nutrition Association Shares Video About Supply Chain Issues

Shortages and supply chain issues have brought great challenges at all points of the food supply chain -- from raw materials and manufacturing to packaging and transporting. In addition to food, this shortage affects the paper products used to serve meals, and even the trays that are a mainstay in every cafeteria, among other items.

At the same time, many schools are affected by staffing issues, with workers retiring or leaving the profession. Yet, despite these challenges, school nutrition teams are working tirelessly behind the scenes to secure the necessary items needed to provide students with a healthy and balanced meal.

The School Nutrition Association has created a video that shares with parents what they need to know about supply chain issues and their current impact on school meals. Click here to view this video.
