Information on Inclement Weather

As we approach inclement weather season, here are a few reminders:

  • The Kenton County School District has once again completed an approved application through the Kentucky Department of Education for NTI (Non Traditional Instruction) days to be included in the district calendar as student attendance days for the school year due to a potential need to close for our facilities to in person instruction due to weather or unforeseen circumstances. This means that if our schools are closed due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances, teachers and students will not report for in-person instruction. However, teachers will post lessons and assignments for students to complete at home. Please note that NTI days are not like synchronous instruction when schools were closed due to COVID-19. The use of NTI days will allow a continuation of instruction for all students due to an emergency situation or weather. More information on the structure of NTI Days is available here.

Favorite Candy Bar: Pay Day

"I enjoy writing, sewing and crafting. Being outside at a campsite in the fall or home around a bonfire with family and friends. I like to take photos and decorating/baking for holidays. I don't really have a favorite color, i like so many I can never narrow it down to one. I love to rearrange my home. I am a licensed Cosmetologist and Real Estate Agent although I no longer do either. I worked in a Spa as an Esthetician for 15 years prior to coming to work for Kenton County Schools. I love my job and enjoy the kids so much!"
