Lawrence County Supt. Dr. Rob Fletcher has been bustin’ it to explain to different groups in the community what the schools look like in this ‘Day of the Virus”.
He has been doing day to day tweets much like President Trump informing the public of the devastation in the communities everywhere. The local school system has plenty of comfort for their misery as most schools in all parts of both W.Va. and Kentucky have shut down due to the Coronavirus scare.
The schools will continue to operate through computer work during their NTI classes but not all teachers are trained for NTI, especially in the lower grade levels.
Here is letter Fletcher sent to the community and a couple days worth of Tweet examples.
