Stanford Family, It is with much sadness that we inform you of the passing of our student Josh Hargis. He passed away Friday, October 23, 2020.

If you are picking up student meals at Stanford Elementary School, you will need to be in the front parking lot closest to our cafeteria at 11:00.
There are still some extra lessons showing up in our Edgenuity system. Each week, your child will have assignments in Pathblazer Reading and Pathblazer Math that were assigned by the teacher. When your child opens Pathblazer Reading and Pathblazer Math, they will be able see what their teacher has assigned. Always look for the snowflake in the top corner and start with the snowflake. Your child will also have assignments in the Odyssey tab in Science and Social Studies. Always look for the snowflake in the top corner and start with the snowflake. There are Math and Language Arts activities within the Odyssey tab, but your child is not responsible for those. If you have questions, please reach out to your teacher via Class Dojo, email, or Google Voice number.
Students do not need to be doing any assignments in Edgenuity over the weekend. The assignments we need them to do will not be visible until 9:00 AM, Monday morning. Teachers will notify through Class Dojo when assignments are available. Just remember, students should always be looking for the snowflake to know what to do. If your student does not have an account in Edgenuity yet, please do not be alarmed. We are aware, and we are working with the company to resolve this issue. We are hopeful your account will be activated by Monday and your child’s teacher will reach out once we know the company has this issue resolved. If you have not completed your sign up for Class Dojo, this is a great time to take care of that so you and your child will be ready to receive communication. Class Dojo is a primary source of communication for ALL grade levels and ALL students this year.

DISTRICT UPDATE, 2020 K-CAMP CANCELLED LC SCHOOLS FRIDAY, JULY 24, 2020 STANFORD, KY – July 24, 2020 Lincoln County Schools is canceling K-Camp for the 2020-2021 school year. The event had been scheduled to be hosted in-person on August 5th and 6th. The decision to cancel is based off of correspondence from Interim Commissioner of Education Kevin Brown that was sent out to superintendents last night. Commissioner Brown asked districts starting before August 14th to either consider starting with NTI or pushing their start date until after August 15th for in-person school. “Because of this recommendation from the Commissioner, we’ve decided it’s best to cancel K-Camp this year,” said Superintendent Michael Rowe. Update on Starting School Lincoln County Schools is currently scheduled to start school on August 26. The current plan is to offer students two different options: Option 1, in-person school and Option 2, Patriot Learning Academy. The schools have been conducting a survey with the parents/guardians of students in the district. As of today, there have been 2,800 responses and 66% of the responses have been to return to in-person school on August 26th. “Based on the comments from the governor the past couple days, we fully understand that these plans may change. Our leadership team is constantly working on alternative plans. We will be discussing these with the Board soon at a Working Board Meeting,” explained Superintendent Rowe. For more information please contact the Lincoln County Student Support Center at 606.365.2124.
The Lincoln County Preschool/Headstart Program is in the process of contacting all returning students to determine the number of available slots for the upcoming year. We are also working through the list of those who have newly applied. We will begin the screening process in the next couple of weeks. To begin with, we will screen many more students than we actually have slots for. We will keep a healthy waiting list, so that students can move in as soon as a spot becomes available. The current state guidelines call for reduced group sizes; therefore we will likely have fewer available slots than in previous years. Please be patient as we work through this process. Due to staff retirements, we are working with a limited staff and are training new staff as they come on board. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to meeting our youngest future patriots!❤️💙
