Attention Senior Parents:

Your student should have started the application process for college by now. I have had individual meetings with almost all of the seniors. As your student begins to receive acceptance/scholarship letters from colleges/universities please have them bring those letters to me. I make copies for each student's file and give the originals back. Thank you, Mrs. Knox

Seniors are allowed 3 excused college/career visits this year, as long as they complete the necessary paperwork. This can be found in the files hanging outside of my office. Please make sure that your student is signing up for a meeting with me and that if you schedule a college/career visit they have the required forms. Thanks, Mrs. Knox

There have been some major changes to FAFSA. Due to the changes, the application for FAFSA won't be available until December of this year. One thing that students can do is create an FSA ID. One major change to FAFSA is that each student and parent will need their own individual FSA ID. I will be working with seniors next Friday 10/27 in the computer lab to create their ID's. They will need to have their social security number to complete the FSA ID. I will be holding an information session in November for parents to help with FSA ID and FAFSA.
Thank you,
Mrs. Knox

Absentee Notes

School policy states that a parent must call the office (859-431-1335) on any day that your son or daughter is absent. For the safety of our students, it is also a school regulation that parents must send in a written note stating the reason for their child’s absence on the day they return.  Even though the parent may have spoken to someone in the office on the day of the absence, it is still necessary to send the note on the day of his/her return.

  1. Unexcused absences and unnecessary tardiness will be penalized.
  2. Detentions will be issued for excessive tardiness.

Please check the Schools Policy in the Student Handbook for further Clarification.

Dear Parents,

Great News! Dealing with your children’s lunch money and school fee payments just got a lot easier. You can now add money to your child’s meal account, see their cafeteria purchase history, and pay for all school related fees securely online from your computer, tablet or smartphone!

With K12PaymentCenter the chances of lunch money and school fee payments getting lost or stolen significantly decreases. Plus, you save time not having to come into school to make payments! You can add money to meal accounts and pay for school related fees at the same time from your desktop or mobile device. You can even schedule recurring payments, set up notifications, and transfer meal funds. It will also save your payment history so you can refer back at any time.  You will have access to your child’s account 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

First time users click “Sign Up” then select your state and district from the drop-down lists

Fill in your information to set up the account

Click “Manage Students” to add your student(s) with their last name and student ID number

Make a payment to your students’ accounts with your credit/debit card or electronic check


Once you create your account and add your students, you will have access to your student’s meal account balance and cafeteria purchase history for FREE! When making meal account or school fee payment there is a small convenience fee per transaction (not per child) to cover payment processing. ($1.95 fee for payments up to $100, and 2.99% fee for payments over $100)


We have some exciting news about  You can now make payments via electronic check (eCheck).  When you make a payment with an eCheck it has a convenience fee of only $0.95 no matter what the transaction total is.


How do you set up eCheck as a payment method?

Log into your account or create an account if you have not used it before

Click Manage Wallet on the left menu

Click the orange Add Bank Account button and follow the prompts to securely add your bank

Once the bank account is saved you will be able to select it as a payment option in the Select a Wallet drop down at the checkout screen. That will change the convenience fee to $0.95 in the cart.*  

*If an eCheck payment is made and there are insufficient funds in your checking account, the payment will be reversed, and the district may apply an insufficient funds charge to you.
