Attention Attention! Teen Leadership Students will be hosting a Food Drive beginning on November 30th. Students have set a goal to collect at least 1,000 items to donate to our local food pantry. If their goal is reached we will have TEN drawings that will include ALL MCKA students for pizza deliveries! Items may be placed in boxes that will be set outside at MCKA. Please see flyer below for more details about items that will be accepted!
The weather wasn't perfect, but we still handed out over 24,000 meals this week! If you plan on collecting meals next Thursday, please fill out the Meal Package Order form: https://forms.gle/YjEc1NGNgLYZSfEY7
Today is the beginning of Red Ribbon Week. National Red Ribbon Week celebration plays tribute to a DEA Special Agent Enrique S. "Kiki" Camarena who was killed while trying to stop drug trafficking in the United States. This week our school will focus on the prevention of underage drinking and tobacco use, misuse of prescription drugs as well as use of illegal drugs. Please see video link below for informational video about Red Ribbon Week. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7kef2XtnHk
We're excited to offer local apples from Hinton's Orchard & Farm Market this week in our schools!
Don't forget: Our first re-entry date for Distance-Learners who want to return to In-Person learning is Wed., September 23. Please contact your child's school if your child will be transitioning to In-Person learning.
The following is a message from the MCPS Transportation Department we emailed to families earlier today: Parents, Given the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we cannot currently allow what we historically have called "note riders" -- that is, students who bring a note in order to ride a bus when they typically do not use MCPS transportation. For example, a student would not be able to bring a note indicating that he/she will ride a bus to a friend's house on a particular day. In the past, we've been able to accommodate those situations, but with our current set of COVID-19-related health requirements, this is not possible. However, we are able to work with families if a student who normally rides a bus needs to be dropped off at a different location. For example, some students may occasionally need to be dropped off at a relative's home. As we continue to receive health-related guidance, we'll update our procedures and share that information with you. Thank you and please stay healthy.
Reminder: Our first re-entry date for students currently enrolled in Distance-Learning is September 23. Please communicate with your school if your child plans to return to In-Person learning.
Congratulations to MCPS Assistant Superintendent Troy Benningfield who has been named the Outstanding Administrator by the 4th District Kentucky Music Educators Association!
