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.
