Return to School Procedures

Return to School Procedures

In previous school years there have been instances where you could send your child back to school after being sick with a parent note being the only requirement for them to be readmitted. With the current operating procedures that we are faced with we are going to need to follow new guidelines when returning from illness. We have posted the Decision Tree that we are using for guidance on both our website and Facebook page. That document states that if your student has had any symptoms of COVID-19 then we have to have either documentation of a negative test or an alternate diagnosis for them to return to in person classes. In order to make sure this is followed we are going to need for you to present that documentation to the school prior to your student entering the classroom.  Use the bullet points below to...

2020-2021 Instructional Update - 7/27/20

 Instruction Options for 2020-2021

2020-2021 Back to School Update - 7/14/20

Good morning! We wanted to provide you with a few updates. First, we want to let you all know that our One Call system is down so please try to help spread the word about these updates with anyone that you think has an interest. We appreciate your help with that. Secondly, thank you all for your patience. We have been trying to consult with other districts and absorb all the guidance that we receive from the Kentucky Department of Education and local health officials in order to make good decisions regarding the health of not only our school community, but the community as a whole. After all things have been considered our board determined last night that we would push our start date back to August 24, 2020. This start date offers a couple of advantages to our district. First, it allows us to align more closely with Mayfield Independent which is important because we send students to their district for instruction at the Mayfield Area Technical Center. Next, this start date allows us to take advantage of a law that provides for what is referred to as a Variable Student Instructional Calendar as long as start on or after August 24, 2020. This law provides for us to not have to meet the 170 day requirement of a traditional calendar, but still requires us to meet the 1062 hour component of the traditional calendar. We can restructure our schedule to meet those hours with minimal impact to our normal hours of operation on a daily basis. You are still afforded the same options with regard to how you determine your student(s) with receive instruction this year. Finally, this start date gives our staff more time to prepare for having students both in class and in the home setting. We have not taken away the options of either attending in person or staying home in a "NTI" type setting. As always, we look forward to working with you and your children. Please don't hesitate to contact the board office with any questions or concerns.

Message from Superintendent Jay Simmons

I believe during these different times communication is even more important than usual. To that end, I am going to start blogging as often as possible to continually get out information you may need or want. I can't promise it will be every day, but I am going to try.  Here is a link to the blog, this link can also be found on our district Facebook page if you would like to share or save it:

NTI Information - 4/21/20

Good Morning. I wanted to provide you with an update regarding the remainder of the school year. As most of you have heard, Governor Beshear has asked that we not resume in person classes this school year. We have also been provided with some time allowance for our NTI days that will allow us to finish our required instructional time a little earlier than expected. Our last day for students for the 19-20 school year will be Friday May 8. We will be dropping off the last packet, which will contain 1 week of work, on Friday May 1 via bus routes or in school pick up as we have done in the past weeks. We will continue our lunch locations through Friday May 15 except for on May 1 when we will deliver lunches with packets via bus or in person pick up in the cafeteria. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation during this difficult time. We are here to provide assistance if we can help in any way.

NTI Information - 4/19/20

In order to continue to promote social distancing, we will have a change in our food service delivery for this week and going forward. Starting Monday, we will be delivering meals to the same locations but only on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Each of those days, two meals (breakfasts and lunches), may be picked up each day. A one call will be made announcing this as well. Thank you and please call the board office if you have any questions.

NTI Information - 4/3/20

Good Morning! We hope everyone is doing great! We have a few updates this morning. First, as most of you have probably seen on the news, Governor Beshear has asked that we extend our current NTI situation through May 1. We will be continuing with new packets going home on Tuesday April 14 and those packets will contain 3 weeks of work. We will be distributing via bus(we will do food this way on Tuesday as well since we will already be coming around to homes) as we have the past two times and we will collect completed work at that time as well. Just drop your completed work back into the envelope and hand to us at that time. You also have the option to come to the buildings between 10-5 on Tuesday the 14th to pick up or turn in work. After Tuesday we will be available for pick up or drop off in the buildings from 10-1 each weekday. Remember, we are on Spring Break next week so there will be no food services or instructional services taking place. I would like to take a moment to thank everyone that has worked to provide meals at this time. Our cafeteria staff has been exceptional both in work production and attitude and I want them to know we appreciate them. If you get the opportunity to send one of them a message, you should do it! Enjoy your Spring Break! Stay safe, follow social distancing orders and find time to do things that you enjoy!

Preschool Funding in Serious Jeopardy
Strong Start KY Friends:

HB 190 - the Strong Start preschool bill, sponsored by Rep. Carl Rollins, establishes the framework for expanding preschool when funds are available. It is on the agenda for Tuesday’s House Education Committee meeting. 

Please call members of the House Education Committee NOW (see list below).  Ask them to:
Vote YES on HB 190 - the Strong Start preschool bill.
Two ways to contact your representative by phone:
1. Call 502-564-8100 and ask to speak directly with your representative.

Talking Points for House Bill 190 if Needed:
•  We are not asking for new funds with this bill
• It establishes a framework for expanding quality preschool for 3-and-4 year old children as funds become available.

• It requires collaboration: Eligible providers (schools, childcare and Head Start) in each community will have to work together to use existing facilities and resources to receive funds to expand their preschool, using our tax dollars more efficiently.

• High Quality Preschool is a good investment: Every dollar invested in high quality preschool programs for low income children will return an estimated $5 to the state in lower special education costs, lower grade retention rates, higher high school graduation rates and lower criminal justice costs.

Thank you!!
