Principal's Message

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Happy New Year! We hope 2024 will be the best year yet. It is hard to believe that we are now in the third quarter for the school year. Progress Reports (K-3rd) and Report Cards (4th-6th) for the second quarter will be sent home on Friday, January 4. This is an exciting month for our 4th-6th grade Beta students. They will have the opportunity to compete at the state Beta Competition in Louisville, KY during the week of January 15th. We are wishing them the best of luck! Go Tigers! 

Now that we are in the months of possible inclement weather, our district could choose to have a Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) day.  If our superintendent, Rob Clayton, announces that we will use an NTI day, your child will need to login to their Google Classroom to find their schedule and daily assignments. Attendance will be taken twice each day. Please be sure to have your child attend live Google Meets provided by the grade level teachers. Please see the WCPS NTI expectations below:

Warren County continues to work to navigate the best opportunities for instruction for our students.  At times, we may use Google Meets and Google Classroom to allow our students to learn and work during a superintendent-called NTI day. Please be aware that students will need to be ready to follow their school’s NTI schedule that includes time for live, synchronous instruction as well as independent work time. When we conduct Google Meets with our students, we want to protect our students in every way possible.  When Google Meets are taking place, we expect our students to be in a private setting.  If students are in a public setting such as a mall, store, or at the park, or otherwise in the presence of third parties, we may ask the students to step out until the setting is private.  Google Meet attendance is expected and will be recorded in the official record of student attendance. Participation in Google Classroom work will be used for monitoring student learning and grade calculations.

Thank you for your understanding as we work to provide continuous learning and protection for our students.
