School Day Extended To Coincide With The Solar Eclipse

             In follow-up to the announcement regarding the Lincoln County School District's decision to extend the school day on Monday, August 21, 2017, we want to share some of the final details as we prepare for this very unique learning experience planned for our students.
A few things to know:
     Lincoln County Schools will be extending the instructional day on Monday, August 21st until 4:00 PM to coincide with the solar eclipse. After careful consideration, we are extending the school day to ensure our students have the opportunity to view the eclipse in a safe environment.
     Certified solar eclipse viewing glasses will be provided at no cost for all students and will be distributed the day of the eclipse.
     Students must have parent permission to participate in the eclipse viewing experience at their school. Permission slips will be coming home the week prior to the eclipse with your child. An alternative viewing option on media within the school will be provided as needed.
      We understand that some parents/guardians may want to request an absence for their child on this day so that their child can participate in an educational activity related to the eclipse outside of the school. Parents/guardians wishing to make this request may fill out an Educational Enhancement Opportunity Request Form and submit to their child's principal at least five (5) days prior to the absence. If you submit an Education Enhancement Opportunity Request Form and it is approved, the absence will be marked exempt for that day. The form may be accessed at the following link:

Educational Enhancement Opportunity Requst Form

August 21st School Day Extended One (1) Hour

Eclipse

Lincoln County Schools will be extending the instructional day on Monday August 21st to coincide with the solar eclipse.

 

The duration of the eclipse for Lincoln County is from 1:02pm-3:55pm. The instructional day for Monday August 21st will extend to 4:00pm for all schools. Since prolonged viewing of a solar eclipse with the unaided eye could cause serious eye injuries, our goal is to ensure students are not on school buses during the eclipse.

 

The eclipse peak will be at 2:30pm when the moon obscures 96.5% of the sun.

 

As normal, buses will leave from the middle school first. Students will arrive home roughly one (1) hour later than normal.

Please sign permission slip and have your child return it to school on Monday if you haven't already done so. You may also click the following link to download permission slip now Solar Eclipse Permission Slip

Reminder of Immunization Requirements

Immunization RequirementsIn June of 2017 the Kentucky Department for Public Health passed new immunization regulations that will directly affect all school aged children. Below are the new regulations.

One new age-specific immunization requirement and one booster dose requirement

effective for the school year beginning on or after July 1, 2018:

  • 2-Dose Series of Hep A (Age: 12 months through 18 years)
  • Quadrivalent meningococcal vaccine (MenACWY) booster dose (Age: 16 years)

Every child age 12 months-18 years of age will be required to have the 2-Dose series of Hep A. Also, all students ages 16 and up will be required to have a booster dose of meningococcal.

If your student has had these vaccines please check with the school nurse to make sure they have a copy on file.

The CDC as well as the Lincoln County School District is suggesting you get these vaccines scheduled as soon as possible to ensure your students compliance for the 2018/2019 school year.

Each student will have to provide their respective schools with a new KY Immunization Certificate.  If the student has a Religious Exemption, he/she will be required to provide a new Religious Exemption form which now requires a notary signature and seal.
