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:

Gallup Poll Results

gallup

The Gallup Student Poll is a 24-question survey that measures the engagement, hope, entrepreneurial aspiration and career/financial literacy of students in grades five through 12. The Gallup Student Poll includes noncognitive metrics with links to student success. This scorecard reflects results from surveys completed in U.S. public schools.

 

Attached are the results from our 5th grade students regarding Engagement and Hope. Our students are hopeful with regards to their futures and feel they learn in a very engaging and caring environment as is demonstrated by these results. This is exactly what we strive for here at McKinney Elementary and we are encouraged to see we are being successful in that pursuit.

 

 

No School ~ 1st Patriot Day (NTI Day)

Lincoln County Public Schools are closed, today Thursday, January 4, 2018. This will be the first Patriot Day (NTI Day) for students. Please have your student complete Day 1 of their Patriot Day packet today. Stay warm and safe. 

Your child's teacher will be available to assist today if needed. Please refer to the information that came home with your child's Patriot Day packets and the information included here - Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) Program Information

LIVE Program Hold

How to place a hold:

A program’s implementation requires intentional planning, oversight and revision utilizing the continuous improvement process. At this time, Superintendent, Mr. Rowe has placed a hold on the addition of new students into the LIVE Program. Mr. Rowe has asked both Jackie Risden-Smith, Chief Academic Officer, and Darren Yaden, Chief Operations Officer, to take over the program at this time. We will be prepared to add additional students in January.

LincolnReads20 Kickoff

LincolnReads20 logo

We are so excited to share a new districtwide initiative to encourage students and families to Read 20 minutes per night. .

Students are encouraged to read 20 minutes per night at home and they will complete a log of their reading time.  Completed logs will be returned to their teacher and will allow students to be eligible for a variety of prizes at their schools. 

We are kicking off this district reading initiative and would like your help in spreading the word and encouraging students to read.  

Look for  our yard signs around the community along with posters of educators reading at your school.  Information will also be shared with and discussed at the local radio station during our twice monthly Lincoln County District Updates.

Many celebrations have been planned and will be occurring at the elementary schools across the district.

Thank you in advance for helping our students on their path to becoming life-long readers!  

Reading with children for 20 minutes per day exposes them to 1.8 million words a year!

#LincolnReads20

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

McKinney "ROAR" Guidelines

ROAR Guidelines

McKinney Elementary has developed school-side expectations that have been taught to students since the start of the school year as part of our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) school-wide initiative. Our expectations are summarized by the acronym R.O.A.R. Roar stands for Responsible, On-Task, Attitude and Respect.  If our students keep these four things in mind and try their best to demonstrate them in all settings they will be successful.  They are also rewarded for these efforts. We have seen a tremendous amount of growth in all four of these areas since the start of school.  Our goal at McKinney is for these four expectations to become habits of all of our  students, simply the way they do business and we are off to a great start.

Congratulations to the Lincoln County Early Childhood Program!!

      Preschool-Headstart Teachers

     All six Preschool/Head Start sites, including Crab Orchard, Fort Logan, Highland, Hustonville, McKinney and Waynesburg have earned a 5 Star Rating based on the Kentucky All STARS Tiered Quality Rating and Improvement System. A 5 Star Rating is the highest rating possible to be earned. The All STARS system is certified by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Department for Community Based Services, Division of Child Care and the Kentucky Department of Education.

     Kentucky All STARS is Kentucky's expanded five-star quality rating and improvement system for early care and education programs. Studies show that children who attend high quality early learning environments have better math, language and social skills. The unified system serves all early care and education programs that receive public funding including child care centers, Head Start and public preschool. Kentucky All STARS is based on Kentucky's Early Childhood Standards and research-based indicators of quality. It recognizes programs that have made a commitment to continuous quality improvement. On the path toward higher quality, programs can benefit from supports including training, technical assistance and coaching.

      On the expanded five-star scale, STARS level one is obtained by meeting regulatory requirements. STARS level two is obtained by completing a set of required domains and standards. STARS levels three through five features a range of points programs must meet in order to meet to move up on the rating scale. While there are required domains for these three STARS levels, programs can choose from a menu of standards to fulfill the requirements.
