MCHS SBDM Meeting Rescheduled

STLP Competition

The school system was well represented in regional STLP competition as students/groups from Camargo, Mapleton, Northview, McNabb, and MCHS advanced to state competition. Kudos to the judges for their hard work. Schools have to supply a judge or their projects will not be judged. (Judges don’t evaluate their own school.) Many thanks to the Tech Team for being there to help with any technical issues. (They reported there were very few this year.)

Social Media Rumor 2/22/18

This morning, Thursday, February 22, 2018, we learned of a rumor circulating on social media suggesting that a gun had been brought to Montgomery County High School.  This is completely untrue and has been investigated fully.  Again, the rumor is false. 

We encourage anyone with concerns to speak to an adult instead of sharing untrue rumors over social media which does nothing but make things worse.  Please discuss this with your children as well as model appropriate use of social media for them. 

Again, concerns should be shared with an adult at school or by reporting to our Montgomery County Schools talk and text tip line at 859-279-4300.  Thank you for helping to be part of the solution in stopping untrue rumors from being shared on social media.

Safety is Always Our Top Priority

Student and staff safety is always our top priority at Montgomery County Schools.  Recently a situation occurred that we felt we needed to let everyone know about in order to address misinformation being shared.

On Wednesday, February 14, 2018, one round of small caliber ammunition in very beat up condition was found on the floor of a classroom at the high school.  Law enforcement and school officials investigated the situation and could not find any connection to any potential threat.  This appears to be an isolated situation and at no time were students or staff in any danger. 

Please take this opportunity to talk with your children about safety and the importance of reporting dangerous situations to adults.  Please remember that anyone can report unsafe or dangerous situations to the talk and text tip line at 859-279-4300.

FBLA Visits McNabb Students

On November 28, the FBLA chapter 5341 American Enterprise Team visited McNabb Middle School to educate and inform seventh and eighth grade students on financial literacy and fiscal responsibility. Students also learned what it means to have access to a free enterprise marketplace in America. Team members compiled a list of financial related questions and administered a pre-test to see where the students understanding was before the lesson was taught. Students then played the Game of Life and had to make month to month decisions based on their individual budget, including car payments, utilities bills, mortgages, and entertainment expenses. After the game was complete, students were administered the same test and asked to complete it with their newfound financial knowledge. The results of the pre and post-test showed great improvement. The FBLA chapter ensures each year they observe and teach the importance of the American Enterprise system.

Safety is Our Number One Priority

The safety of our students and staff is always our number one priority. Earlier today, we were made aware of a rumor being shared on social media talking about a student planning to do harm tomorrow at a school identified only as MCHS.

In working with local law-enforcement and other school districts, it was determined that the MCHS in the post actually belongs to another school district in another region in Kentucky. Please know the other school district confirmed the situation had been taken care of last night.

We appreciate those who brought the rumor to our attention. We will, as always after a school break, be very diligent in our work with students tomorrow. Thank you.

Thinking of Others

Football Game Rescheduled

Due to the forecast of the remnants of Hurricane Harvey, the MCHS football game for Friday night (9/1/17) at Harrison County has been rescheduled.  The game will now be played on Saturday (9/2/17) at 6:00 p.m. at MCHS.  This was a mutual agreement between both schools, as Harrison County has a natural grass field and we are virtually certain their field will be unplayable.

TRIBE Day on 8/21/17

Montgomery County Schools will be closed for students on Monday, August 21st, 2017, and this day will be a non-traditional instruction day (TRIBE Day).  This decision was made with a focus on student safety after reviewing our transportation routes and times during the eclipse, discussing possible scenarios with our insurance agents, and monitoring decisions made by other school districts across the state.  The use of a Non-Traditional Instruction day provides a way for our families to best determine how they, as a family, want to experience the eclipse. 

Through generous donations by the Montgomery County Education Foundation and Dr. Richard Henry at Henry Dental, all of our students will receive solar viewing glasses.  These will be sent home on Friday with our students along with eclipse-themed TRIBE Day materials and safety information about the eclipse for our families.  Even though schools are closed on this day, students will need to work on the eclipse-themed TRIBE Day lessons at home.  No assignments will require students to view the eclipse as that is up to you as families to discuss and determine if and how that would take place. 

Daycare will be available on Monday, August 21st from 5:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. at the Early Learning Center and MSE.   If possible, we encourage our families to try to avoid picking up their children during the eclipse times (between 1:03 p.m. and 3:54 p.m.) as we are unsure how traffic in the community may be affected.

Sterling Elementary, Tuesday, September 13th from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.; and MCHS, Saturday, October 1st from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m.  A background check may be picked up at any of our schools, our Central Office, or at the orientations.  For further information contact Jeff Perkins at (859) 497-8724 ext. 229.

Increased Security Notification

SAFETY & SECURITY NOTICE:

Our community has joined the nation in expressing our grief and outrage over recent events at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. In a proactive response, the Montgomery County School System, including the Montgomery County School District Police Department, has united with City and County law enforcement to reevaluate and strengthen security procedures in our school district.

We hope that you will feel more secure, and certainly that you will not be alarmed, when you see an increased police presence in our schools. We also request your patience and ask that you not take offense if you are subjected to a more rigid screening process when entering one of our facilities.

We will continue to offer the best customer service possible, but cannot and will not be lax when it comes to the safety and protection of our children and staff.

Thank you.
