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.) 

Moving to state competition in April:

Camargo Project Title: Lost and Found

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 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.

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.

Nominations for Two Community/Business Leaders

Every four years the district must update its Facilities and Construction Plan, which prioritizes building, construction, and renovation projects for the next four years.  The facilities plan is revised by the Local Facilities Planning Committee (LPC).  The Montgomery County Board of Education is seeking nominations for two Community/Business Leaders to serve as members of the Local Facilities Planning Committee.  Nominations should be submitted to, and additional information is available from, the Superintendent’s Office, 640 Woodford Drive, 497-8760, by Monday, September 26, 2016.

 

MCIS Permanent Traffic Change

We would like to notify you of the permanent traffic change which will take place for the entrance and exit for the Montgomery County Intermediate School.  This change will begin on Friday, September 2, 2016 with morning traffic patterns.  Traffic will now be able to enter and exit MCIS from the new pattern on Maysville Road (Route 11).  Additionally, traffic may continue using the existing access road on Paris Pike.  Families will be able to use either entrance and exit to best meet their needs.  Although the new entrance is now operational, this area remains an active construction site with work crews continuing to be present.  To alleviate congestion, please allow additional travel time when dropping off and picking up students for the first few days following this change.  Please take a moment to review the map below.

 

Volunteer Training Sessions

When it comes to public education the vast majority of research concludes:  "One of the most important components for successful schools is the engagement of parents and volunteers in the support of students and teachers."  At Montgomery County Schools we welcome and encourage support from our volunteers.  To begin the process a volunteer needs to complete a background check and attend a volunteer orientation.  The remaining orientation schedule for the 2016-17 school year is as follows:  McNabb, Thursday, September 8th from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.; Mt. 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.

Please note that the date of the volunteer orientation at MCHS has been changed from Saturday, Sept. 24, to Saturday, Oct. 1.  The time, 9:00 – 10:00, is the same.

9/11 Heightened Awareness

We are aware that several school districts across the country have been the subject of anonymous, general  threats via social media today, the anniversary of the September 11 attacks.  Across the state and country, law enforcement agencies, including our school police officers, are investigating the threats.  All threats are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly to make sure students are safe.

The social media posts appear to be generic and without credibility.  However, please be assured that the safety of our students is top priority.  The level of awareness at all schools has been raised as a precautionary measure.   As always, if you see suspicious behavior, please contact local law enforcement or the school district.

High School Lock Down 9/3/2015

9/3/15

 

To the Parents/Guardians of Montgomery County High School Students:

We write to inform you of a situation that occurred today at Montgomery County High School.  At approximately 11:30 a.m., the high school went into a lock down as a precautionary measure due to an isolated instance involving the well-being of one student.  No other students were ever in any danger and the lock down was lifted at approximately 12:00 p.m.  Student safety is always our top priority and we want to commend our students and staff for how well they handled themselves during the lock down.

Sincerely,

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.
