Inclement weather conditions have cancelled classes for the Bracken County Schools 14 days this winter. It is the Board’s intention to follow the current calendar which lists upcoming make-up days. Currently, the last day of school for Bracken County students is scheduled for June 3, 2014 and closing day for teachers will be June 4, 2014. At the present time, there is no plan to use March 20-21and March 31-April 4 as make-up days.
To be proactive, the Bracken County Board of Education may make changes to the calendar for the remainder of the 2013-14 school year. This amendment would change the two early release days (April 18 and June 3) to full school days and gives the Board some flexibility if Mother Nature does not cooperate for the remainder of the winter. This decision will be made at the March 10, 2014 Board Meeting.
The dates listed in this letter are subject to change should we miss more school and a final decision may not come until March.
Bracken County Schools has subscribed to a new phone service for parents which will allow us to better communicate information to the home. It is integrated into our student information system, Infinite Campus.
Following are some types of information you can receive from the school district or school using this phone messaging system:
Parent or guardian contact information (phone numbers, email addresses, etc.) are obtained from your student's enrollment form.
If your contact information changes, please contact the school with updated information so that it can be entered into our data system.
Congratulations Bracken County High School
