Winter Weather thermometer

Boone County Schools have a great team working tirelessly to make decisions on closing or delaying school, always keeping the safety of our students as the top priority.  As early as 3:00 a.m., if snow, freezing rain, sleet or other dangerous precipitation presents our Assistant Superintendent for Operations set out to inspect the road conditions. They drive designated routes, checking the roadways that are typically the most dangerous when snow covered.  The team considers safe travel not only on streets but sidewalks, parking lots, and  driveways.  Other conditions to consider include the outside temperature, wind chill factor and the amount of precipitation fallen or falling. The Assistant Superintendent for Operations contacts the county public works department to check on road clearing progress.  Once enough information is gathered and shared with the Superintendent the team focuses on one question:  Would you feel safe transporting students in a school bus in the current or predicted conditions?

Solar Eclipse


Important Information about the Solar Eclipse

On Monday August 21st, 2017 we will experience a total solar eclipse, an event that hasn’t occurred over the U.S. mainland since 1979.  A total solar eclipse, which is when the moon completely covers the sun, will occur across 14 states in the continental U.S. along a 70-mile-wide swath of the country.  While Boone County is not located in this area, we will still be able to view the partial solar eclipse.

This event will be an extraordinary educational opportunity for our students.  Many of our schools will have special activities or lessons planned for this day to accompany the event.  While this event is extremely exciting for our students, we must also acknowledge the importance of proper eye safety.  While it should be common sense not to stare directly at the sun with your naked eyes, this advice will be even more important during this event.  The eclipse must be viewed only through proper eclipse glasses.  Schools with planned viewing activities will require students to wear proper solar eclipse glasses.

In order to protect our students’ eyes during this event:

  • Students will not participate in any unstructured outdoor activities, including recess
  • Students will be advised to not look directly at the sun without wearing solar eclipse glasses
  • We will provide additional personnel until 4pm for parents who do not want their children riding the bus during the eclipse.Children who do not ride the bus for that reason will have to be picked up by parents at 4pm.
U.S. Service Academies

Unique Learning Opportunity for Seniors

28 seniors (7 from each Boone County high school) will be selected to explore careers in the growing field of manufacturing. In this fall program, students will visit industry sites and interact with employees to learn about job/apprenticeship opportunities and company benefits (often including tuition assistance). They will also do work simulation activities and practice soft skills.


A new program is available this fall for seniors who are interested in careers involving building or working on various types of machines. Several manufacturers in Northern Kentucky, including Bosch, Mazak, and Hahn, will provide tours of their facilities and the chance for students to interact with employees to learn about the many job possibilities available, as well as benefits provided, including college tuition assistance.

Students will also explore various career pathways in manufacturing and do activities that simulate the skills needed for this type of work. This could end with your child getting an apprenticeship at one of the companies.  They will earn money while going to college and will receive tuition reimbursement.  Only seven BCHS students will be selected for this NKIP program, and the deadline to apply is Sept. 7. If this sounds like something you’d want your student to consider, contact me at pam.hirn@boone.kyschools.
