• Alert:

    Covington Independent Public Schools will return to in-person learning on September 28, operating on the “A/B” Hybrid Model.

    This means students who are assigned to the “A” group will attend school in person on Mondays and Tuesdays. Students assigned to the “B” group will attend school in person on Thursdays and Fridays. Students will continue to log in and complete assignments online on days in which they are not scheduled to attend in person. Earlier this month during orientation visits, schools informed students of which group they were assigned. Please contact your child’s school if you are not sure of your child’s grouping. Students who opted for virtual only in the Covington Virtual Academy, will continue with their online assignments five days a week. Just a reminder that Covington Virtual Academy students must remain fully virtual until December 18.

Students Receive Work Boots

Thank You!

When Gary Kathman saw a post about Holmes High School students getting jobs in the construction field, he said to himself, “they need proper boots for those jobs and I know they are expensive.” 

So, Kathman, one of the owners of Red Wing Shoes in West Chester, invited the young men to his store and donated the steel toe boots required for the jobs. Kathman measured the students’ feet to make sure the boots fit properly. Each student left the store with a new pair of boots and a big smile. 

“I just felt in my heart that those boys needed to start the job on the right foot,’’ said Kathman, who even threw in pairs of socks for the students. “They need good equipment if they are going to go into that workforce. I just always have loved giving back to the community. It is a way to get them started.’’

Students Daylan Griffin and Pablo Mondragon are working with Messer while students Nicholas Kampsen and Jacob Monhollen are employed by HGC Construction. 

Eric Breetz, a carpentry instructor at Holmes, is developing partnerships with companies such as Messer and HGC to help prepare students to enter the labor force. 

The students are so appreciative. The entire Covington Schools family also sends out a great big “THANK YOU” to Mr. Kathman for his kind gesture. It means so much.
