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.  
school School Store

At the first of the school, we sent out flyers about School Store. Many of you signed you child/children up for it. Now is a great time to be using it! Tompkinsville Elementary can make money that will be used for our students, and it is very EASY to do. If you are shopping online, go first to www.schoolstore.net, find Tompkinsville Elementary, and then click on merchants. It is that easy! The prices will be the same as it is on the store website. There are over 400 stores to choose from, for instance Wal-Mart, Target, Children’s Place, The Gap, etc. So I know that this is an extras step, but it is a quick step. TES has earned $60 already from great parents like you, but we could be making more money. Feel free to tell grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc., that they can also go through this site to order online.

*UPDATED SOLAR ECLIPSE INFORMATION*

Gamaliel Elementary School 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. 

Students will not be dismissed to parents while at the Gamaliel Elementary School location.

mw Savings Account Fundraiser Opportunity

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 TES for everyone 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 TES. 
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.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact our school for more information.

1.  Will the Monroe County School District automatically take all 10 days the waiver provides?

  1. No.  We will only use MCSD@Home if we need to miss for snow, sickness, etc.  Therefore, if we have a mild winter and we stay healthy it is possible that we would not need to use any of the MCSD@Home days.

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.
