  • Parents/Guardians: Please be advised that in order to enter the middle school you will be asked to show your ID and to state your reason for your visit. This is required by State law KRS 158.162. Although, staff may know you personally you will still have to follow these rules. This is for the safety of all. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

  • Parents/Guardians: Just a few reminders since the excitement from the first day has calmed down some this reminder is about pickups both from school and for extra-curricular activities. If someone other than you will be picking up your child, please relay this information to them. Our students who are picked up from school, rather than riding the bus, are not released until 3:15. Please do not arrive earlier than that time, as we do not have the space in our back parking lot to accommodate all vehicles. Due to our limited space and people parking early, city streets and residential areas are being blocked and it is posing a safety hazard as emergency vehicles can't get through. We've been notified that law enforcement will be out in force and if you are posing a traffic hazard, you will be asked to move. If your child is staying after school for an extracurricular activity such as sports or clubs, you will need to park in the side parking lot between the school and the board office. DO NOT park in the loop or on the sidewalks as emergency vehicles cannot get through. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we just want to ensure everyone is safe. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
