Thank you, ZEF!

We are proud to announce that both Kara Benson and Amanda Rush were awarded ZEF grants this week. Congratulations Mrs. Benson and Ms. Rush, and many thanks to ZEF for making this possible!

Here is an overview excerpt from Ms. Rush's winning grant proposal:

I am very grateful to ZEF for their continual support of Zionsville teachers. The teachers and students of Boone Meadow will greatly benefit from this grant which will be used to purchase the Fountas and Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention Green System. The LLI Green System will provide teachers in grades kindergarten through second, as well as literacy and special education teachers, with small-group supplementary intervention materials to bring struggling readers and writers to grade-level competency.

Lifelines for the Month of October:

The New and Improved Website

From Coach Stephens

The $5,400 district wellness grant titled “Moving to Learn” will provide the students with high-tech wearable devices that track their performance output during wellness classes. This data can be immediately accessed and tracked by the wellness teachers and feedback can be quickly provided to the students. It’s a very exciting way to keep our students active and healthy, and the team is anxious to try them out when we receive them! We could not have done this without the support of the Zionsville Education Foundation’s generosity!

Reckon it’s time to get ZEF Barn Bash reservations!

Horse feathers! Y'all haven't rounded up your ZEF Barn Bash reservations yet? Well, giddy up and order them before Fall Break! Get ready to have fun in our Game Corral, enjoy chic country cookin', ride the buckin' mechanical bull, and then kick up your heels to the music of the Hunter Smith Band! Casual attire - boots preferred! Reservations are required, so rustle up your partners and mozy on over to the link below to save your place in the chow line before October 30!


Please be advised that students are not allowed to bring medications of any kind to school. This is for the safety of all our BME students! Instead, an adult 18 years or older may drop off any meds at school.

School Safety

School Visitor Check-Ins at ZCS

Please be aware that we use a visitor management system known as SafeVisitor. SafeVisitor is a 30-45 second check-in process that cross references against all national sex offender registries and prints a visitor badge. Please be prepared to scan a government issued ID (Driver License) when arriving to campus as a visitor or volunteer. The printed badge should be visible at all times while in the building. Thank you!

Please note: Full background checks are still required field trips. Full background checks cost $15.95 and take at least 7-10 days to process. Limited background checks are still required for lunch visits, volunteering in a supervised area, etc.

**Bullying Video**

All volunteers in our district are also required to complete the bullying module, consisting of a short video and a digital signature as proof of watching the video. This video must be watched for either level of volunteer (Full or Limited). Please click here to visit the BRAVO/Volunteers page where all of these items can be completed.

Smart 911

Boone County has shifted from NIXLE to SMART911. This is a free service that allows you to receive emergency notifications from the county which may include severe weather warnings and traffic alerts. The program will ask for optional personal information that could be used in the event of an emergency situation in your home. Boone County citizens are encouraged to create their Safety Profile with Smart911 today. To create a safety profile and sign up for updates, go to
