Dear Montgomery County School Families,

On behalf of our entire Montgomery County School family, I want to welcome back all of our students and families. 

There are a few changes for the 2017-2018 school year about which I wanted to let our families know.  I am pleased to announce that after much hard work and planning by our Food Service/Nutrition department and Board of Education, Montgomery County Schools will be able to offer breakfast and lunch at no cost to ALL students at ALL schools for the 2017-2018 school year.  Since beginning the Community Eligibility Program (CEP) in 2014-2015 with the elementary schools and Early Learning Center, we have been able to add one school in each successive year (MCIS in 2015-2016, McNabb in 2016-2017, and now MCHS in 2017-2018).  We also will no longer allow students to charge when purchasing ala carte items and encourage our families to use the MyPaymentsPlus on-line system to make on-line payments, check account balances, or receive email notification when account balances fall below a certain amount.  This system can be accessed at www.mypaymentsplus.com.  An App for MyPaymentsPlus can also be downloaded for use on mobile devices.

Another change allows our transportation department to be a bit more efficient in runs between MCIS, McNabb and MCHS.  The school start times for McNabb, MCHS, and Sterling School have been adjusted to start five minutes later than last year.  The dismissal time and start times for all other schools remain the same.  The approved start times are below:

Please take time to read the welcome back letters from each school/program that impact your children.  Information about open house days and times are included in each school’s letter.  In order to stay up-to-date with accurate information, don’t forget to follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MontgomeryCountySchools and on our school website at www.montgomery.kyschools.us.  I hope that all of our families enjoy the rest of the summer.  We look forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks.

Proud to be your school superintendent,

Matt Thompson, EdD
