McCreary County School District Last Day For Students Moved To Monday May 21st, 2018

Parents, Guardians, and Students

During the 2017-2018 school year, the McCreary County School District missed a total of 15 school days. Ten of those were Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) days that will not have to be added to our school year. Unfortunately, five of those days will have to be made up. Monday, May 21, 2018 is the last scheduled day for students. McCreary Central High School Senior Graduation will be held Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.

McCreary County Schools Will Be On A 2 hour Delay This Morning, Wednesday April 4th, 2018.

Parents and Guardians: The McCreary County School District will be on a 2 hour delay this morning. This will increase visibility of potential downed power lines, trees, and other debris and allow our Bus Drivers to safely navigate our county roads this morning.

No School In The McCreary County School District, Monday April 2nd, 2018

Throughout the weekend, no staff member of the McCreary County School District expressed interest in attending the rally in Frankfort to their principal/supervisor.  I asked principals/supervisors to notify staff this afternoon to see if anyone wanted to attend.  After receiving the numbers of teachers wanting to attend, school will be cancelled in McCreary County School District for Monday, April 02, 2018.  

I am extremely sorry for the late notification to parents and students.
