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.

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.

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.

Wellness Workplace Wellness

  The Monroe County School system initiated a workplace wellness plan, Spring Break Walkout, in which walking paths were measured and posters with directions were placed at each school. Employees were encouraged to walk before or after school or during their lunch break. For every mile walked, they would put a star by their name on a board. Small prizes were given to the winners, those that walked the most miles, and to all those that participated. Employees took advantage of walking paths and the friendly competition to see who would get the most stars.

CHAMPS 2013-2014 JHC CHAMPS Program

We know many of you have been wondering about the status of the JHC CHAMPS After-School program for the coming school year. While our grant funding has ended, we have been working very dilligently to make sure the program is still alive an...d strong. As always, the program will still run from the end of the school day until 5:00 each day. The cost will remain the same as well. There will still be homework time and then fun activities each afternoon. Other than a few staff changes, you should not notice any differences in the program from past years. There will be sign-up forms in your child's beginning of the year paperwork package as well as a booth set up at open house. Thanks to Ronda Elam for her dilligent work in making sure the JHC CHAMPS program remains alive and better than ever!
