Dear EES Families,
On Friday, June 11, 2021, Governor Andy Beshear issued Executive Order 2021-
386 (EO 2021-386) lifting the requirements for masks, social distancing, and
capacity limitations. Later that same day school districts received the following
message from Commissioner Glass of the Kentucky Department of Education:
Pursuant to Executive Order 2021-386 (EO 2021-386), the Kentucky
Department of Education (KDE) has rescinded its flagship COVID-19
guidance document “Guidance and Safety Expectations and Best
Practices for Kentucky Schools (K-12),” commonly known as the Healthy
at Schools guidance. The use of cloth face coverings and social distancing
measures are no longer mandated.
Effective immediately students, staff, and visitors are no longer required to wear
a mask at activities on our campuses. We will no longer require social distancing
and we will resume full capacity for all events. This includes, but is not limited to;
summer school and summer programs, meals, job related duties, school
sponsored events, and extra-curricular activities.
Students, staff, and visitors that wish to continue to wear a mask as a matter of
personal preference are welcome to continue that practice.
I want to thank all of our EES students and families for their patience,
cooperation, understanding, and persistence over the last fifteen months. Your
efforts have allowed us to reach this day. Thank you.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Board Office or your
Chad D. Molley, Superintendent

Erlanger-Elsmere Schools, in partnership with Wild Health and the Kentucky Department for Public Health, will be holding an on site vaccination clinic at Dietz Auditorium on Thursday, June 17th from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm.
Lloyd Memorial High School – Dietz Auditorium (inside Scheben Gymnasium)450 Bartlett Ave.Erlanger, KY 41018
Appointments are available for staff, students, and members of the community ages 12 and up. Participants will receive the Pfizer vaccine.
To register please visit kyvax.wildhealth.com. On the drop down to select location, choose Lloyd High School.
When you arrive at the clinic you may also take an optional COVID-19 test. This test is not required to receive the vaccine.
Fully vaccinated students and staff will not be required to quarantine as a close contact as long as they are not showing COVID-19 symptoms. This is a positive outcome for school attendance and extra-curricular participation moving forward.
A parent or guardian does NOT have to be present for their child to receive the vaccine as long as the consent form is completed. Students must bring the completed consent form with them to the scheduled appointment.
Erlanger-Elsmere staff cannot cancel or reschedule appointments for you. You must contact Wild Health.
Questions regarding the vaccine, testing, or your appointment should be directed to Wild Health Customer Service at (859) 217-4679.

The Emergency Broadband Benefit provides a discount toward broadband Internet service along with a one-time discount to purchase an applicable device.
If your child receives free or reduced lunch, your family is likely eligible for this benefit, even if you are already paying for Internet service. In order to qualify, please ensure you have a Household Income Form (HIF) on file with our school district, and that you’re eligible based on that form.

The program provides:
- Up to $50/month discount for Internet service.
- Up to $75/month discount for households on qualifying Tribal lands.
- A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet purchased through a participating provider if the household contributes more than $10 but less than $50 toward the purchase price.
The Emergency Broadband Benefit is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
A household is eligible if a member of the household meets one of the criteria below:
- Has an income that is at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or participates in certain assistance programs, such as SNAP, Medicaid, or Lifeline.
- Receives benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or the school breakfast program, or did so in the 2019-2020 school year.
- Received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year.
- Experienced a substantial loss of income due to job loss or furlough since February 29, 2020.
