Winter/Spring Community Education Opportunities KCSD Community Education

KCSD Inclement Weather Policy

By Terri Cox-Cruey, Ed. D., Superintendent of Kenton County Schools

The winter can be challenging to our instructional rhythm and overall school operations. It is particularly frustrating when events, scheduled well in advance, have to be canceled or postponed. While scheduling and rescheduling events during inclement weather is challenging, our current policy is to work with each school based on their circumstances to make sure the activity takes place for our students. Positive, proactive communication is necessary for all participants as we work together to disseminate information district-wide. I want to take this time to review how decisions are made when weather takes precedent.

Alert: Snow Removal Maintenance Changes for Some Kenton County Roads

With winter approaching, the Kenton County School District wanted to make parents, students and the community aware of changes coming to snow removal maintenance on some roads.

Back to School Health Requirements

It’s time for parents to start thinking about health requirements for back to school! Meeting health requirements for school attendance is an important part of making sure your child is ready for school.  These requirements provide the assurance that your child is not only up-to-date on necessary immunizations, but also that he/she is healthy to attend school.  Keep your child “on track” by making sure that he/she meets the health requirements every school year.
