Assessment Info Overview of State Assessment Results

Due to both state and federal regulation, the Kentucky Department of Education is phasing out the previous accountability system and replacing it with a new one starting the 2018-19 school year. Due to this transition, the data released does not contain overall accountability scores or rankings.

 

For the 2017-2018 school year, accountability determinations apply to schools only and include schools identified for Comprehensive Support and Improvement (the lowest performing 5% of Title I and non-Title I schools) and Targeted Support and Improvement (Title I and non-Title I schools with at least one student group performing as poorly as schools in the bottom 5%). All remaining schools are identified as “other.”

 

As we review state assessment results there are numerous reasons to celebrate. We have seen growth in several areas. Of course, with all state assessment results there are also areas of concern. Below is an accountability determination breakdown for each school in Lincoln County:

 

  • Crab Orchard Elementary School – Targeted Support & Improvement (TSI)
  • Highland Elementary School - Other
  • Hustonville Elementary School - Other
  • McKinney Elementary School - Other
  • Stanford Elementary School - Other
  • Waynesburg Elementary School – Comprehensive Support & Improvement (CSI)
  • Lincoln County Middle School – Targeted Support & Improvement
  • Lincoln County High School – Other

 

 

Craiger, Jeff Craiger Named Principal at Hustonville Elementary

Welcome Back to School WELCOME TO ANOTHER GREAT START OF SCHOOL

As another school has started, our students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in education, one of the most important human endeavors. Children have another year to acquire more knowledge, develop their minds and build on their character. Even though it’s hard to believe the summer vacation is over, the start of a school should be seen as an opportunity to start afresh -- the way we consider spring the season of rebirth, growth and optimism. Welcome back to a new school year! 

The Lincoln County Schools is excited to start a new school year with you. We are very pleased that our district has a well-earned reputation in the community to its commitment of fostering academic excellence while consistently focusing on creating positive social relationships. At Lincoln County Schools, we are working together in creating a child-centered learning community that involves each and every adult who interacts within a child’s life. Acting as our students’ advocates is a part we all play to ensure they reach their fullest potential. The greatest gift that we can bestow upon the children is to create an outstanding school atmosphere which will leave an enduring impression on their educational lives. It is from their first experiences of school that we will work together to foster a love of learning and the ability to build long-lasting social relationships. On their paths to becoming lifelong learners, we will provide them with a remarkable series of experiences, so, that they too, can see just how important a role the adults in their lives play. The skills that our children learn at the Lincoln County Schools will lead to future success.

Attendance Policy Update

attendance mattersThe Lincoln County Board of Education recently amended the attendance policy. Families need to be aware that the medical use form is no longer part of the attendance protocol. Students will continue to have 10 absences that can be excused by a note from the doctor.

Students will continue to have six absences and six tardies that can be used for personal reasons. We encourage parents to send a note with their student upon their return. If a note is not received from the parent/guardian, the school may automatically excuse the absence. Parents will continue to receive a daily call.

If you have further questions please refer to the Lincoln County Student Handbook or contact Brandi Hon, Director of Pupil Personnel at brandi.hon@lincoln.kyschools.us

Wednesday, August 15 - Schools Closed until 1:00 PM

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.

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!

Solar Eclipse Schedule August 21st Solar Eclipse
No School - TODAY - Friday, August 18th

Lincoln County Schools have been cancelled today, Friday, August 18, 2017 due to continued rising waters in some areas of the county. 

 

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.

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

Early Childhood Registration

Birthday Cutoff for Kindergarten Changed

Kindergarten childrenA change in the birthday eligibility cutoff for Kentucky kindergarteners will take effect in the 2017-18 school year. According to the Kentucky Department of Education, starting next fall, any child who turns 5-years-old on or before August 1 may enroll in full-day kindergarten. The change affects children statewide, according to the Kentucky Department of Education's website, which states, "Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, ...the entry date changes from October 1 to August 1.”
According to the Lincoln County Public School’s early entrance policy, parents may petition the board to allow their child to enter school earlier than permitted under statutory age requirements. Due to the change in the birthday eligibility cutoff, parents may request early-entrance screening if their child will turn 5-years-old between August 2 and October 1, 2017. In order to be accepted for early entry, children must exhibit high levels of academic and social/emotional aptitude on early childhood screeners/assessments.
Those who request early entry will be screened in April and May, and if the student meets the criteria, a recommendation will be made to the board of education by June 30 for the 2017-18 school year. A petition for early entrance testing must be made in writing to the superintendent prior to April 1 of the proposed entry school year. Please contact Bruce Smith, Director of Pupil Personnel, or Angela Cain, Director of Teaching and Learning, for further information. (606-365-2124)

LINCOLN COUNTY WEATHER RELATED PLANS ~ 2017 Reminder

Due to inclement weather (snow, ice, flooding, etc.) occasional changes may be required in school transportation, attendance times, and dates. Inclement weather requires close cooperation and good communications between home and school so that the quality of education is not reduced and the safety and welfare of children are maintained. In the case that changes are made, a School Messenger call will be made. Possible changes include: An early release, cancellation, or one of the three plans-one-hour delay, two-hour delay, or plan B is implemented.

The Kentucky Department of Education allows up to five hours for emergencies that can be forgiven and do not have to be made up each year. Lincoln County Public Schools (LCPS) may choose to delay the opening of schools by one-or-two hour increments as opposed to closing the entire day. The Board of Education may use one of the following alternative operational plans in an effort to reduce the number of days missed due to inclement weather.

Lincoln County “Patriot Days”

Lincoln County Schools has been granted state permission to offer “Non-Traditional Instruction “(NTI) days during the 2016-2017 school year.  We will call these Patriot Days!  This plan will allow meaningful learning to take place when conditions prevent school from being in session. A Patriot Day will count as an instructional day, and if approved by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE), will not have to be made up at the end of the school year.

WHAT IS A NON-TRADITIONAL INSTRUCTION DAY (PATRIOT DAY)?

A non-traditional instruction day (Patriot Day) is a district declared day when learning and instruction will continue, yet students will not report to school.  Learning will take place using technology or conventional paper packets focusing on previously introduced content to enhance, remediate or enrich student skills.  All materials will be provided by your child’s teacher(s) and students are expected to return completed assignments to their teacher upon their return to school. Students who have difficulty completing the work on the actual Patriot Day will have up to one week from the actual Patriot Day to turn it in. Please note, not every school cancellation day will be a Patriot Day.  The School Messenger call will clearly indicate what type of cancellation day it will be.

No School January 6, 2017 ~ First Patriot Day (NTI) Day

*Tomorrow, Friday, January 6,* is our first Patriot Day or (NTI) Non-Traditional Instruction Day.  School is closed, but students should complete their assignments for *Patriot Day #1* and return them when school is back in session.  If your student needs help or assistance, his/her teacher(s) will be available to answer questions between the morning hours of 8:00 a.m.—11:00 a.m. and in the afternoon between 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.  Teachers will be accessible via email and or telephone and will respond to both student and parent questions during the day.  This contact information is included with your student’s Patriot Day packets.

District Calendar Update 2015-16

Thursday, April 14, the Lincoln County Board of Education voted to revise the school calendar and make the last day for students May 25.  This decision was in response to the provisions of HB 111, a recently passed statue which provided school districts “snow day relief.”  HB 111 removed the requirement of schools being in session 170 days and instead gave districts the option of counting accumulated instructional hours as the determinant of a full instructional year. 

Lincoln County students attend school for 6 1/2 hours every day.  This added instruction enables the district to “bank” additional time.  As a result, the revised calendar of 164 days equals 1,066 instructional hours, exceeding the state requirement of 1, 062. 

Please hover over the District Calendars link on the left to access the revised calendar.

The district-wide process for kindergarten registration has been revised.  To register a child, please pick up a registration packet between March 28, 2016, and April 15, 2016, at the elementary school where your child will attend kindergarten.  When picking up your registration packet, you will receive more information about scheduling a "Ready for K" screening visit at your child's school.  Late registrations will be accepted; however, we encourage you to register your child during the registration window of March 28, 2016, thru April 15, 2016, so your child can participate in the "Ready for K" screening visit.  Children who are currently enrolled in the Lincoln County Preschool / Head Start program do not need to register.

National School Breakfast Week!!!

Getting More Students to Begin Their Day with Breakfast

“Wake Up to School Breakfast” Encourages Lincoln County Families to Choose Breakfast at School

 

Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for families to find time for a healthy breakfast. However, the US Department of Agriculture data shows that more students are starting their day with a nutritious breakfast in their school cafeterias.  To encourage more families to take advantage of the healthy choices available with school breakfast, the Lincoln County Schools will participate in the National School Breakfast Week during March 7-11, 2016.

 

The National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) campaign theme, “Wake Up to School Breakfast”, reminds the entire school community that school breakfast provides a healthy, energizing start to the day for students. Students will be encouraged to “Wake Up” their minds and bodies during March 7-11 with special menus, decorations, cafeteria events, and more.

2016 District Spelling Bee Winner

Congratulations to Emery McDowell, a 5th grader  from Crab Orchard Elementary, for winning the District Spelling Bee on February 22, 2016. The Lincoln County Spelling Bee was held at the Board of Education on February 22nd with eight participants representing eight of our schools. These students competed for the chance to represent Lincoln County Public Schools at the state level.  In order to be declared the winner, the student had to correctly spell the word missed as well as a new word. The winning words were "jerkily" and "warrant". McDowell successfully completed that challenge and will advance to the state competition, Kentucky Derby Festival Spelling Bee, on March 5 in Louisville. We would like to thank Lincoln County Kentucky Farm Bureau Federation and representative Melinda Pence for monetary donations for our spelling bee winners.

Ein Rousey (Runner-up), Tangela Van Winkle, Emery McDowell, Lilly Blanton, Rayne Gray, & Paisley Gay.

Non-Instructional Day Parent Survey

Lincoln County Public Schools wants your input about possibly applying to the Kentucky Department of Education for a Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) program. This program gives districts that miss school due to weather or other emergencies the opportunity to conduct school through virtual (technology) or other non-traditional means on days that the district would normally cancel school.  The district would then show evidence of student participation and student learning and would submit a request to the Kentucky Education Commissioner for approval.  If approved, students would not have to make up those days.

Our district would offer a blended approach of using technology and printed packets for students on NTI (Non-Traditional Instruction) days.  Please respond to the survey below  so that we can consider your input as we develop our potential NTI Plan. Thank you for your support!

School in session Friday, February 19th

Lincoln County Schools will be in session Friday, February 19th with buses running at the regular time. However, the bus routes will still be operating on the same Plan B schedule as February 18th due to the poor turnarounds on many of the same roads.

Please click Read More below for a list of roads affected. Thank you for helping us keep your students safe.

Thursday, February 18th ~ 1 Hour Delay

Thursday, February 18th, our schools will be operating on a ONE HOUR DELAY AND ON OUR RECENTLY IMPLEMENTED PLAN B.  The one hour delay means we will run buses and start school one hour later than on a normal day.  Nearly 100% of the roads causing us to implement Plan B are due to poor turnaround conditions that we cannot safely send a bus on. Your driver has or will contact you if your road is affected about where and when you can meet the bus, or you can also take your child to school if you wish.  School will end at the normal time at the end of the day and you should plan to meet the bus at the same place in the afternoon.  If road conditions improve during the day, we may find it safe to travel more of these roads, but we cannot yet offer that option without causing confusion.  The Plan B roads tomorrow can be found on the districts website, WPBK-FM website as well as broadcast over WPBK radio.

Employees will work their regular schedule.

Please click Read More below for a list of roads that will be affected on February 18th

No School ~ February 11, 2016

School has been cancelled for today, Thursday, February 11, 2016. Stay safe and warm. 

Operating on Regular Schedule ~ Friday, Jan. 29 ~ Implementing Plan B

We gratefully appreciate your cooperation and understanding today as it was so nice to see the students get back to a near-normal school routine. And, our district wide attendance was a respectable 93%. Tomorrow, Friday, January 29, our schools will be in session and at the regular time, but we will still be on PLAN B. While several of these roads are nearly clear, the main reason that most roads are causing us to use Plan B is due to the unsafe bus turnaround conditions that exist down that road. You should again plan to meet the bus at the same place in the afternoon.

If road conditions improve during the day, we may find it safe to travel more of these roads, but we cannot yet make that assumption without causing confusion.  And, you can still take your child to school if that’s best for you. The Plan B roads tomorrow include the same roads as today, but we are adding few additional roads to this list. The additional roads are listed below and the complete updated list can be read by clicking Read More.
*

1. Jim Padgett Road   5. Carpenter Road
2. Broughtontown School Road     6. Spice Ridge (Highland)
3. Peck Hollow Road   7. Kocher Ridge
4. Trusty Road   8. Slate Branch Road
1 Hour Delay for students ~ Thursday, Jan. 28 and Implementing Plan B

Tomorrow, Thursday, January 28 our schools will be operating on a ONE HOUR DELAY AND ON OUR RECENTLY IMPLEMENTED PLAN B.  The one hour delay means we will run buses and start school one hour later than on a normal day.  Plan B means that due to road and/or turnaround conditions we cannot safely send a bus on the following list of roads.  Your driver has or will contact you if your road is affected about where you can meet the bus, or you can also take your child to school if you wish.  School will end at the normal time at the end of the day and you should plan to meet the bus at the same place in the afternoon.  If road conditions improve during the day, we may find it safe to travel more of these roads, but we cannot yet make that assumption without causing confusion.  Since students have been out of school for 11 of the past 12 days, we will appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we are making an effort to get back to a normal school routine.  The following list of Plan B roads for tomorrow can be found by clicking Read More below:

January 27, 2016 ~ No School for Students---Staff Work Day Planned


Due to continued bad road conditions on some numbered highways, Lincoln County will not have school tomorrow, Wednesday, January 27th. We are not implementing a Plan B day because numbered roads are still not clear. This is explained in the news article below on Plan B. As you can see in the picture, roads such as Ky. Hwy. 328 are only partially clear. The district will have a staff work day on Wednesday, January 27th which replaces the staff work day planned for March 18th. Those employees who would have worked on March 18th will report to work tomorrow. This means that March 18th will now be an instructional day for students!

January 22, 2016 - No School

School has been cancelled in Lincoln County for Friday, January 22. Stay warm and safe!

Linus Project

This year the students at Hustonville Elementary have been committed to serving others. Our students have been involved with the Linus Project. Mrs. Lori Sheperson has been teaching our students that "Love from our hearts and work from our hands do good for others" This is the season for giving. In the spirit of the season our school has made three blankets that will be delivered to the Frankfort drop off site for the Linus Project. Thank you so much to the parents, staff and students who have made it possible to place blankets in the hands of those who could use a little comfort during this Christmas season.

Happy Holidays

Season's Greetings from all of the staff at Hustonville Elementary. We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. This has been a wonderful semester and we have much to be grateful for. It is our Christmas wish that everyone will have a joyus break spending time with friends and family.

Please mark your calendars. School will be closed for the holidays starting Monday, December 21st. Students will return to school on Tuesday,  January 5th 2016.

SCHOOL CELEBRATION & RECOGNITION

On November 12, 2015, Superintendent Hatter and officials from the Lincoln County School district attended the Southeast Southcentral Educational Cooperative superintendent’s regional meeting to be recognized for the 2014-2015 state assessment score results.  Dr. Stephen Pruitt, Kentucky’s newly hired Commissioner of Education, attended and congratulated Lincoln County High School principal’s Michael Godbey and Christy Denny on their impressive Distinguished Performance Rating status as well as scoring as one of the Top Scoring High School’s in our region. Also, principal Gwen Lawson was presented banners for being both a Distinguished Elementary School as well as being recognized as Lincoln County first and only School of Distinction—a significant honor.  Congratulations to these high flying schools!

Threat Discovered at Lincoln County Middle School

On Wednesday afternoon, November 4, 2015, at approximately 6:00 p.m. Ms. Debbie Sims, principal of Lincoln County Middle School, discovered the statement “Kill everybody 11-5-15” written in the girl’s downstairs lobby restroom of the middle school.  District officials, along with local law enforcement, immediately investigated the incident and proceeded to consult with multiple public officials.

After thoughtful consideration, the decision was made to keep school open and in session on Thursday, November 5th.  However, to ensure the protection of students and staff, both local and state law enforcement will be present in the school throughout the day. “We want everyone in the community to know that we take this incident very seriously,” Mrs. Hatter stated, “however, this certainly appears to be an example of copycat behavior since a similar incident occurred over the weekend at Crab Orchard Elementary School and within the city of Stanford. This has been a difficult decision to make and realize that some guardians may feel uncomfortable sending your student to school. If that is the case, we certainly understand."

 

Graffiti Threat Closes School on Monday, Nov. 2

On Sunday, November 1, 2015, a written threat stating, “You getting shot down Monday 10”  along with a pair of scissors with the word “Die” was discovered on the columns and sidewalk of Crab Orchard Elementary School.  Mrs. Hatter, superintendent of Lincoln County Public Schools, along with local law enforcement, emergency management system personnel, and the Kentucky State Police immediately responded and proceeded to investigate.  Together, these officials decided that district schools close the following day, Monday, November 2.  While we realize that this decision is unexpected and an inconvenience for everyone, we believe it is better to err on the side of caution and cancel school while the Kentucky State Police investigates the incident.

 In addition, since this action adversely affects so many individuals, we are asking for the community's help and assistance. If you or someone that you know has any information that would help in identifying the perpetrators of this incident, please call the Kentucky State Police at 1-800-222-5555 or 1-859-623-2404.

Weather Decision Update - April 14, 2015

A Lincoln County school bus was faced with high water on Tuesday morning.

Although district transportation officials were out early the morning of April 14 checking streams and problematic areas, there was no indication that the water would rise as quickly as it did.  With buses already on the road, several Lincoln County drivers quickly found themselves in challenging circumstances.  

When flooding waters quickly covered the road, one driver had an immediate decision to make—to stay put or quickly exit the area.   When interviewed the driver stated, “The water was overflow from a creek, it was not moving.  I know the road and the lay of the land and felt confident that I could safely drive through it without compromising the safety of the students on the bus.  And that is what I did.  I made the best decision that I could in difficult circumstances.”    
Transportation Director, Donnie Leigh stated, “Thankfully, the bus did make it through safely and without incident.  Some students were on board but no one was hurt nor became wet.  This morning the bus driver found himself in a difficult

Early Dismissal - April 14, 2015

Lincoln County Schools will dismiss school at 10:15 a.m. this morning.  If drivers encounter roads they believe unsafe to travel, they will turn around and take students back to school.  If that occurs, school personnel will call parents and /or guardians.  All drivers have been instructed to exercise sound judgment as they transport our students safely home.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. 

Early Dismissal - April 3, 2015

Lincoln Student Early Dismissal

(Stanford, Ky.) – Today, Superintendent Karen Hatter announced early dismissal for Lincoln County Students due to the possibility of local flooding. The decision was made in collaboration with local school and community leaders based on the local weather reports. The decision was made so that students would be transported between the timing of weather fronts so that locally high waters would have time to recede.   

Ted DeFossit, Lincoln County Bus Garage Coordinator, announced on WPBK that students would be dismissed from the high school and middle school campuses at 11:15 AM and that bus drivers would begin routes to their respective elementary schools around 11:30 AM. Students will make their normal transitions at the elementary school and begin their routes home at approximately 11:45. 

Please keep in mind that bus drivers may have to take precautions in their routes to ensure the safety of our student and thus making a longer route home.  We anticipate arrival times between 12:30 and 12:45 for all students.

Student Voice Survey

From March 4th – March 25th, your child will have the  opportunity to complete a survey at school called the Kentucky Student Voice Survey. This confidential survey allows students the opportunity to give feedback on specific aspects of his or her classroom experience. Students may take the survey in one or more of their teacher’s classrooms. It will be conducted during school hours only.

The primary purpose of this survey is to provide valuable information for educators who are working to improve classroom and learning conditions as well as how they teach. The Student Voice Survey has been extensively researched and has proven to be an accurate, effective and reliable tool, when used along with other measures, for providing feedback to teachers that will help them become more effective educators.

School has been cancelled Friday, February 27th. No school for students. Please stay warm and safe!

Looking Forward to Spring

Old Man Winter has definitely sent us a heavy blow and is keeping our students out of school once again! While we are very concerned about the interruption in the learning process, safety of our students is our top priority.  We wanted to share some pictures of the roads around the county that our buses must travel as we transport our students every day. 
    

As you can see, many roads are still ice and snow covered and some bus turnarounds are non-functional.   Additionally, many other routes have only one clear lane down the middle of the road.  If a bus and vehicle met, one would have to pull off into a snow drift and would likely get stuck or maybe even slide off of the road. 

We are hopeful that the warmer temperatures forecast this weekend will usher in a spring thaw that will enable our students to get back into school on Monday.  It is time to take the wind out of Old Man Winter and welcome SPRING!!

No School February 19 - 20

There will be no school in Lincoln County on Thursday or Friday, February 19 & 20, 2015. Please stay warm and be safe!!

February 16th - No School for Students & Winter Weather Warning for Staff

  A Winter Weather Warning has been issued by    Lincoln County Emergency Management
  fort omorrow, Monday, February 16, 2015, for 
  Lincoln County. Tomorrow is on the school
  calendar as a ‘Professional Development’ day,
  which means no school for students!

Safety of our employees is our utmost concern. Because of the variation in professional development schedules that were planned for each school’s staff, individual principals will need to determine whether to reschedule and how to make up the day. Each principal will need to get a message to your staff in that regard. This is true, as well, for district program supervisors that have PD planned for tomorrow.

For all extended time employees scheduled for work tomorrow, each individual affected will need to determine whether or not she or he will work. If not worked, missed time can be made up within the pay period, or a noncontract day can be used. A district “School Messenger Call” will be issued to all employees in regard to this matter.

Please, be careful and stay safe!

Jump Rope For Heart Jump Rope For Heart

Math Common Core

Thank You to Mrs. Renee Yates!! Mrs. Yates came to speak to the members of the Hustonville Elementary PTO on January 13th. During her presentation, Mrs. Renee Yates shared with our parents and the staff the thinking behind the Common Core Math standards. Throughout her presentation she offered a great deal of information about how we as parents and teachers can support our children in learning the strategies they will need to help prepare them for the kinds of mathematical challenges they  will face both now and in their future. Conversations centered on two important issues. Those issues included:  Why it was necessary to move towards mathematical problem solving using a variety of strategies? Where we can go to find support material that will help us?

If your child attended Pre-School in Lincoln County for the 13-14 school year, they DO NOT have to register. It is not necessary to make an appointment, but if you have any questions, please call the schools at 606-346-3831. Please share this information with anyone you know who may have a child to register. Thank you and we look forward to working with your child next year at Hustonville Elementary.

Make-Up Day Survey
Due to some confusion regarding the School Messenger survey about dates to use for make-up days, we want to clarify some information. Spring Break was originally scheduled for March 31st - April 4. Due to the 15 days that we have missed, March 31st, April 1st, and April 2nd will be used as make-up days. April 3rd and 4th are POSSIBLE make-up days. If April 3rd and 4th are used as make-up days, there will be NO Spring Break.

After clarifying this information, we would like to provide another opportunity for stakeholders to give us your input. There will be another School Messenger Survey Call sent this afternoon. Thank you for your input.
