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.

Vote for the Banner of Your Choice

Each school district has been invited to design a banner for display at the 82nd Annual Kentucky School Boards Association Conference scheduled for March 2018 at the Galt House in Louisville. The banners are a very important contribution to the conference, reminding attendees of schools' primary focus -- learning and learners. In order to be displayed at the conference, the banner must identify the school district and depict the conference theme:

"Kentucky School Boards: Adapting and Achieving”

Only one banner from each school district is allowed. We are asking our students, staff, and community to vote for the one that will represent Montgomery County at the KSBA annual conference. Voting will end Wednesday, December 20th at 4:30 p.m.

Vote for your favorite choice.

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.
