Additions to safety measures for Madison County Schools

In response to recent violent acts on school campuses across our nation, Madison County Schools has been exploring ways to increase safety and security on our schools campuses and in our buildings. The district has recently partnered with the Safe School Helpline, which is a 24/7 helpline for reporting any threat of harm. Information about Safe School Helpline is being sent home this week with students. Please be on the lookout. In addition, the district is also in the process of hiring 20 safety monitors to be stationed across the district. More information has been added to the School Safety page of our website and we invite you to visit the page to find out more.

Safety in Madison County Schools district logo

The images on our screens this week from Parkland, Fla., were horrifying, alarming, and heart breaking. Students fleeing from a place where they should feel safe from the worries of a much bigger world, rock us back on our heels. It is never something we want to think about happening in our own district, but it is something we know we must be thinking about almost constantly.

 

While every school district is unique in its own characteristics, we all share one common element – a love of children and a dedication to their growth and development. It doesn’t matter if that district is located in Newtown, Conn. or Parkland, Fla. or Madison County, Ky., our goal is all the same – teach them, feed them, love them, and send them into the world prepared for success.

 

Safety is our highest priority. There is no way Madison County Schools can accomplish the instructional goals we have set if our students and our staff don’t feel safe while they are at school. So we work with organizations like the Kentucky Center for School Safety and local law enforcement agencies to ensure we are doing everything we can to keep our students and staff safe every day.

New Immunization Requirements

The Kentucky Department of Public Health recently amended the regulation for required immunizations for children enrolled in Kentucky public schools.  Please see the letter from Mr. Thomas for specific information.
