High Attendance Day Thursday, September 20, 2018 High Attendance Day Thursday, September 20, 2018

High Attendance Day

Thursday, September 20, 2018



The Kentucky Directors of Pupil Personnel have designated Thursday, September 20th as statewide “High Attendance Day” to emphasize that consistent attendance is essential for success in school. This date is set aside to assist with working to increase student attendance because we know that students who are at school on time have a higher success rate than those who aren't.


On High Attendance Day, Kentucky’s public elementary, middle and high schools may compete in small-school or large-school categories. Six winners will be determined statewide based on each individual school’s performance, regardless of its district’s showing. The school in each category with the highest percentage attendance for September 20 will receive a minimum $500. If the school has more than 500 students, the award will increase based on enrollment.

Campus Safety Improvements at MCHS and MCMS

Beginning December 8, 2017


  • During school hours access to Monroe County High School and Monroe County Wellness Center will be from Old Mulkey Rd.
  • Access to Monroe County Middle School will be from Gamaliel Rd. 
  • Chains will be up from 8:00am to 2:30pm. 
  • This will allow us to have better control of the traffic on the MCHS and MCMS campuses which will provide a safer campus for our students and staff.
  • We have experienced drivers using the campuses as an access road from Gamaliel Rd. to Old Mulkey Rd.  During the school day we have students who use the area between the schools for physical education and other activities.  To reduce the risk of someone getting hurt, we are closing access from Gamaliel Rd. to Old Mulkey Rd. during school hours.
  • In the near future, we will be installing a check-in station at the entry of MCHS.  This will allow us to monitor who enters and exits the student parking lot.  
Lunch Accounts MySchoolBucks Program - Lunchroom Accounts

If you currently use the MySchoolBucks program to add money to your child's lunchroom account, please note that the processing fee is being increased from $2.00 to $2.49.  This fee increase is the result of an increase in card schemes fees and will be effective as of December 11, 2017.  This fee is not through the Monroe County Board of Education but from the company Heartland School Solutions that handles the MySchoolBucks accounts.

Eclipse Additional Eclipse Information - Attendance, Eclipse Viewers

Students planning to stay home the day of the eclipse for viewing will need to fill out an EHO form.

If parents plan to check their children out of school on the 21st to view the eclipse, there are two scenarios:

A.) Student checks out of school, views the eclipse, and then returns to school - this will be a school approved check in/out.

B.) Student checks out of school to view the eclipse and will be out the reaminder of the day - this situation will require an EHO. 


Each student will recieve a bag from NASA that will contain the eclipse viewers.  If your child plans to watch the eclipse from home, or in a public viewing area, please let your child's teacher know so the bag can be sent home with the child.  You can also pick your child's NASA bag up at school on the 21st if you check them out early. 


Parents, we ask you to communicate with your child's teacher your intentions for your child if they are different than what the school has planned.  We want to be able to get the materials to you if your child will need them at home, yet have them here at school if they are viewing the eclipse with the Monroe County School District. 

Reminder:  4th - 12th Grades will view the eclipse at the GES campus with a signed waiver.

K-3 Grades will view the eclipse via live stream from the NASA website. 

Students who do not have a signed waiver will also watch the eclipse from the NASA website at their designated schools.


Please call, email, or text us any further questions you may have.

Solar Eclipse Solar Eclipse

Gamaliel Elementary will be in the path of totality on August 21, 2017.  The eclipse will begin at 12:00 pm and will reach totality at 1:29 pm.  Totality will last for approximately 1 minute and 29 seconds. 

During the solar eclipse, all Monroe County students in grades 4th - 12th will be transported to Gamaliel Elementary School to participate in activities and view the period of totality.  Families wishing to have their child(ren) in 4th - 12th participate in the viewing will need to sign and date the waiver going home with students today.  Click here to download a copy of the waiver. 

Students in grades K-3 will have the opportunity to view the solar eclipse from NASA's live stream via technology in the classroom.  This will allow our primary students to safely view the event with their peers. 

Any student who does not have a signed waiver in grades 4th - 12th will view the eclipse from the NASA live stream inside their school building. 

Due to the number of students that will be on the GES campus, there will not be any parking or space for public viewing.  However, there will be various spots throughout the community of Gamaliel for public observation. 

Parents wishing to watch the eclipse with their child(ren) may choose to check them out of school to view the eclipse at one of the public viewing areas prior 10:30 am at each school's location.

Please join us at Gamaliel Elementary School for our 25th Annual Veterans Day Ceremony on Friday November 11th, 2016, at 9:00 a.m.


We would like to extend a special invitation to all veterans, current military servicemen and women, parents and community members, families of veterans, past and present, as well as all patriotic citizens. This year our program is focused especially on reverencing the sacrifices made by Americans - from the Revolutionary War that won our independence as a nation, to the sacrifices of our current men and women serving our great nation. This year’s ceremony is specifically aimed at teaching our students about all that the USA has fought for, the great losses suffered in the name of freedom, liberty and independence, as well as the personal cost to our veterans and their families. We want our students to understand that the great freedoms we enjoy in America did not come without great cost. And we want to honor those who paid that price. Please take time to join us for this important program.

Modern Woodmen Savings Account Fundraiser Opportunity Through Modern Woodmen of America

$20 – Initial Deposit
$20 – Bank Match from Modern Woodmen
$20 – Annual Deposit from Modern Woodmen
$25 – School Donation for GES BETA for EVERY student who participates

How it works……
1. Open a youth savings account for your child through Modern Woodmen with a $20 deposit (your money). The guardian then is sent an email notification for their child to take an online quiz about saving for the future.
2. Once the quiz (five questions) is completed, the student will receive a $20 deposit into the savings account from Modern Woodmen.
3. Once the account has been verified as open, Modern Woodmen will then donate $25 per student back to GES BETA Club.
4. Every year after the account is open, the guardian will receive another notification telling the student it’s time to take another five question quiz. When the student completes the quiz again, Modern Woodmen deposits another $20 into their account. This can continue through their senior year of high school.
5. Withdrawals from the account can be taken any time and deposits can be made just as any regular savings account.

Brad Turner will be set up at GES at Parent/Teacher Conferences (Thursday, October 20th) to discuss any questions you may have or to assist you in signing up if you are interested.

Message Urgent Message

The Monroe County Health Department is investigating a case of Pertussis (whooping cough).  Pertussis is a vaccine-preventable disease and if you or your child is up to date on immunizations, the probability of infection is lowered.

Please consider the following recommendations from the Monroe County Health Department:

1. Contact your physician if you or your child displays cold symptoms with a persistent cough. Pertussis immunization status should be reviewed and age-appropriate vaccine should be given and antibiotic treatment can be initiated if needed.

2. If you or your child develops Pertussis, you will not be permitted to attend school / daycare/ work  until 5 days of appropriate antibiotic therapy have been completed or for three weeks after the onset of cough, if treatment was not given. 

3. Keep your ill child at home until he or she is no longer contagious.  Keep contagious children home from activities where this disease could be spread to others.  Examples include church, scouts, and team sports.
