The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Americas Region, in direct and close coordination with Fort Knox leadership, has decided to continue with digital teaching and learning and keep school buildings closed to students for the remainder of the 2019/2020 schoolyear.

While our schools will remain physically closed to students, teachers and administrators will continue to work diligently to maintain digital learning programs to ensure continuity of education for our amazing students. These programs continue to evolve and differ slightly for each community and school…but the goal is the same, to provide Excellence in Education for Every Student, Every Day, Everywhere.

While some states are making decisions to slowly open up aspects of their economies, given the relatively short amount of time remaining in the current school year, DoDEA and military leadership agree that this was the prudent decision for our schools. The health and safety of our students, staff and communities is our highest priority.

This is obviously an extraordinarily challenging and concerning time for all of us. Watching our teachers, students and communities come together to ensure continuity of education for our military-connected students under these circumstances has been incredibly inspiring.
