Esports--Join Now Esports

Esports is here at BCHS. This is our 2nd season and looking for anyone interested in playing Rocket League for the Esports team.  Come out and be a part of history.  We were home to 2020 E-sport Athlete of the Year and top 20 teams before our season ended with Covid.  

Whether you play console, pc, or have zero experience sign up today.  Console controllers or keyboards can be used in competition.  Regardless of gender, speed, height, ACT, or GPA this is the sport for you.

It is important to confirm your interest with Mr. Hughes (mike.hughes@boone.kyschools.us) as the league information is being released.  Bring your own team of 3 or join up with others taking the drive into E-sports.

The KHSAA has published a parent guide and description for Esports.  The links are below:

Notification to Parents and Guardians: REPORTING COVID CASES logo

Notification to Parents and Guardians
REPORTING COVID CASES
                

Kentucky law requires parents to report to their child's schools if their student has a communicable disease that could place other students and staff at risk for infection. While usually that involves things like chicken pox, state public health regulations have been updated to include COVID-19 as one of those communicable diseases.

 

If your student tests positive for COVID-19 at any time, please immediately report it to the school nurse, by calling your student's school. Notification that a student tests positive is important so that we can take reasonable steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading among students. 

 

To allow us to best track the educational needs of your student, please immediately let us know if your child has been placed on quarantine due to COVID-19 so that we can work with you to adjust your student's schedule to prevent learning loss while he/she is quarantined. We are happy to assist with remote learning opportunities and other services that may be available during this time.

Re-entry Plan For Boone County Schools (Updated 12/15) student at desk

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented our community with many complex challenges, including how we will safely educate our 21,000 students. The priority of safely and effectively educating our students must be balanced with the safety of our 3,600 employees and also the financial impact of the pandemic on jobs and our families.

While we cannot eliminate risks altogether, we believe that by following the state and federal guidance listed above we can together significantly reduce the risk of potentially spreading COVID-19 on our campuses. Doing so, however, will require a shared commitment by each of us to take care of ourselves, our families, and everyone in our schools.
