Schools within the Tell City-Troy Township Schools district will be closed for a week due to "staffing challenges."

From Monday, Oct. 12 - Friday, Oct. 16, schools within the district will be closed.

According to a statement released by TCTTS Superintendent John Anthony Scioldo II, at this time, a "substantial number of staff members" are quarantined due to their potential exposure to COVID-19.

"As many of you know, we have done a great job of keeping the virus out, with only two confirmed cases in the buildings and no known student-to-student spread," Supt. Scioldo's statement said. "At this time, however, we are experiencing a substantial number of staff members being quarantined due to potential exposure to the virus. This is straining our resources, and finding substitute teachers is becoming more difficult."

On Oct. 12, students will participate in virtual instruction by logging on to their Google Classroom to complete assigned work. From Oct. 13 - 16, there will be no student work.

Student lunches will still be provided from Oct. 12 - Oct. 16, in a "drive-thru, summer style."

Supt. Scioldo's statement stressed that the closure wasn't caused by COVID-19 cases within the district, but instead by the quarantined staff members.

We're tracking more active weather that's expected to hit our area early to late afternoon. All eyes are on a cold front moving in from the northwest. It looks as though some of the storms embedded within this line of rainfall may produce both wind gusts in excess of 40 or 50 mph along with pockets of large hail. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center of America has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a "1" on the Threat index for this afternoon and early evening. Our far southwestern communities are under a Slight Risk "2" - those communities include portions of Illinois (Saline, Hamilton, Gallatin, White, Hardin Counties) and Kentucky (Union, Crittenden, Caldwell Counties).
