**On March 17, 2020, Kentucky Schools were closed to in-person instruction due to Covid-19. Most schools across the state did not resume in-person instruction until Fall, 2021. During the Covid-19 pandemic, mass health screenings have not been recommended by the Kentucky Department of Public Health and the Kentucky Department of Education to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. Therefore, student health data will reflect this recommendation.**
