Remember to "fall back" this weekend!

Daylight Savings Time will end on Sunday, November 5th.
Don't forget to set your clocks back one hour before going to bed Saturday night.

Parent Fall Break Survey

We want to hear from you!

There are numerous implications with both keeping or not keeping fall break in the calendar.  The purpose of this survey is NOT to survey all of the different possible scenarios keeping or eliminating a fall break could potentially mean to the development of the 18-19 calendar recommendation.  Rather, the purpose is to get a general idea to what extent our parents want to keep or not keep fall break in the calendar.  Your individual responses will not be shared with the committee.  Only the overall results will be shared.  If you have already responded via the parent email that was sent, no need to complete survey again as your response has been recorded.  Thank you.

Recently there was an update to our Infinite Campus program, which in turn called for an update to the Infinite Campus App that many of you may use to monitor your students homework assignments and grades.  In the past, the app required an alpha code be entered to access your child's information.  With the update, users are now asked to enter the county and state of the school district their child is enrolled in currently.  This information should only need to entered with the initial download of the app.  However, you may be asked to log in with your username and password when using the app.  If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail our District Student Information Systems Coordinator, Kathy Kurtz, at kathy.kurtz@woodford.kyschools.us.

Wind Chill Policy

HOW DOES THE WIND CHILL AFFECT SCHOOL BEING DELAYED OR CLOSED?

 

During the winter months several factors come into play that could delay the start of school or cause school to be  closed all together. One such factor is the wind chill on a given day. On particularly cold mornings we continuously monitor the National Weather Service and closely monitor the weather conditions. There are two possible scenarios that come from the National Weather Service: a Wind Chill Advisory and a Wind Chill Warning. The National Weather Service in Louisville, KY defines the two as the following:

 

  • Wind Chill Advisory: Wind Chills between -10 and -24 degrees and at least a wind of 10 MPH or more.

 

  • Wind Chill Warning: Wind Chills -25 degrees and below with at least a wind of 10 MPH or more.

 

When the National Weather Service issues a Wind Chill Warning for Woodford County for the time the school day begins, we will make a decision to close schools.  It is quite likely we will make this type of decision on the morning of the day in question as it is hard to predict what the wind chill will be the night before.  If there is a Wind Chill Advisory for the county, schools will likely be open unless there are operational problems with the bus fleet or mechanical problem in the school buildings.  Buildings and the bus fleet are assessed in the morning prior to school by 6:00 am.

 

 

Substitute Employment Opportunity

The Woodford County Board of Education is accepting applications for substitute employees.  To apply, click on Employment to the left of this article.  You may choose from a certified substitute position or a classified substitute position. 

Certified substitutes (teacher) have a minimum requirement of 64 college credit hours.  The daily rate is $90 - $113 a day based upon rank and experience.

Classified substitutes (support staff) require a high school diploma or GED.  The daily rate is $10.66 - $20.22 an hour based upon years of experience.

If you have any questions, please contact the Director of Staff and Student Services, Garet Wells, at 859-879-4600 or e-mail at garet.wells@woodford.kyschools.us.

Important Information regarding NTI Days

WCPS Non-Traditional Instruction Day LogoWoodford County Public Schools will continue to utilize NTI Days or "Non-Traditional Instruction" Days for the 2016-2017 school year.  This is a great opportunity for our district to allow our students to be engaged in learning at home on days when the weather does not allow school to be in session.  For much more information on this matter, please click here for a letter from Superintendent Scott Hawkins.

Important Information Regarding Wind Chill Delays and Closings Snowy Fence

How Does the Wind Chill Affect School Being Delayed or Closed?

During the winter months several factors come into play that could delay the start of school or cause school to be  closed all together. One such factor is the wind chill on a given day. On particularly cold mornings we continuously monitor the National Weather Service and closely monitor the weather conditions. There are two possible scenarios that come from the National Weather Service: a Wind Chill Advisory and a Wind Chill Warning. The National Weather Service in Louisville, KY defines the two as the following:

  • Wind Chill Advisory: Wind Chills between -10 and -24 degrees and at least a wind of 10 MPH or more.
  • Wind Chill Warning: Wind Chills -25 degrees and below with at least a wind of 10 MPH or more.

Revision to Visitor Policy

The visitor policy has recently been amended to include an effort to protect the privacy of all children who attend our schools.  It states specifically "Personally owned recording devices are not to be used to create video or audio recordings or to take pictures except with prior permission from the Principal/designee and the affected individual(s)." An exception may be made for events considered to be in the public arena (e.g. sporting events, academic competitions, or performances to which the general public is admitted). School social events for students, activities sponsored by student clubs, and activities during the school day that are not open to the public are not considered to be in the public arena. Thank you for helping us protect the privacy rights of all students.  If you have any questions, please contact Garet Wells at garet.wells@woodford.kyschools.us 

or at 879-4600.

PARENT SURVEY

For the past several years, the Woodford County Board of Education has adopted an instructional calendar based largely on the recommendations of the calendar committee.  The calendar committee consists of employees representing different schools and job classifications as well as students and parents.  The calendar committee will begin its work drafting the 15-16 school year instructional calendar in a few months. One item on the calendar that traditionally is discussed at length is fall break.  For many years it has been a full week break.  However, the committee often gets feedback about adjusting the duration of fall break.  Since it has been quite some time since the opinions of our stakeholders were formally surveyed in great detail, we are requesting your opinion.  In short, we want to know if given a choice, would you like fall break to remain a week or would you prefer fall break be a long weekend (i.e. off on Thursday and Friday before the weekend or off the Friday before and Monday after the weekend).  While your feedback is greatly appreciated, rest assured that individual survey results will not be shared with the committee.  Only the overall totals of those voting for a week and the overall totals of those voting for a long weekend will be shared.   Please visit the following link to complete the survey.  Thanks!  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZRDZMWB

S.T.O.P. Hotline

The Woodford County Public Schools is committed to providing a safe and orderly learning environment for all our students.  In an effort to address behaviors and concerns that may negatively impact this committment, we have recently implemented the S.T.O.P. Tipline.  This tool is a way for anyone to anonymously report bullying or other negative behaviors to school and district administrators.  A link to the S.T.O.P. Tipline has been placed on the WCPS homepage at www.woodfordschools.org as well as each school's individual website.  The link is prominently marked with a STOP sign labeled "Safety Tipline.  Online Prevention".  We appreciate your help in making Woodford County Public Schools a safe place for kids.
