Hazard Family,

I wanted to update everyone on the status of Hazard Independent School District.  Our team (principals, administrators, Kentucky Department of Education, and guidance counselors) met today to discuss the beginning of school.  We have decided to delay the start of school by one week.  The first day of school for students will be August 18th, 2022.  Teachers will report to their schools on August 8th as originally scheduled and support staff will report on August 10th at HHS café for district-wide training.  Factors that led to this decision include one of our facilities is being utilized as a distribution center and our elementary gym is housing a Red Cross Shelter.  The distribution center will be moving beginning next week to a larger centralized location. Our staff will need time to clean and sanitize our buildings to welcome students back in a safe environment. This will also give our staff time to host in-person orientations which will be announced soon. If you cannot attend the scheduled orientation, we are going to individualize these for you.  Just reach out to the school and they will assist you.   Our main goal is to care for our students and community.  We have tried to reach out to each of you to see if there is a need we can help you address.  If you or your family need anything, please reach out to us.  As of now, these changes will not influence the remainder of the calendar, with the last day for students being May 23, 2023.
