Boone County Schools Statement on Copy-Cat Threats logo

Boone County Schools is one of many school districts across the country that is being subjected to copy- cat threats of the school tragedy in Florida.  We are working with local authorities as they investigate a recent rash of rumors and threats on our campuses.  Student suspects in each of the cases were immediately identified and apprehended.  They were charged by local authorities and disciplined by their schools.   In each case a thorough investigation was conducted by the school district and authorities.  No student or staff member was ever in danger. Confidentiality laws prevent Boone County Schools from talking about the persons involved or the specifics of the incidents. Boone County Schools will continue to remain on alert, following our safety protocols and working with the Boone County Sheriff’s Department and Florence Police as future issues arise.

Solar Eclipse

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.
Welcome Back!!

Principal's Message MR.LORING

 

I would like to welcome you to Collins Elementary School and another exciting school year. I am excited to begin my fifth year as the Principal at Collins and about the adventure we are about to begin on for the 2018-2019 school year.

Being an educator in the Boone County Schools for the last 23  years, Collins Elementary is rich in tradition, academic focus, and community involvement.  These are just a few reasons I am proud to be a part of this school. As your Principal, I will filter all decisions through one simple question, “Is this what is best for the students at Collins?”  I will work with the faculty and staff to continue to introduce new ideas and programs that are aimed at taking the students at Collins into the 21st Century. Even though the world around us is changing that does not mean we have abandoned old values that have helped create the wonderful environment and rich academics, which are established at Collins.

We will stress the essence of quality within our school and at the same time; reinvigorate the academics, fine arts, and extra-curricular activities. This cannot be done by just one person; it is the culmination of quality work by students, staff, parents, and the community.

Thank you in advance for your partnership for the 2018-2019 school year.  I look forward to meeting you and your child throughout this year.  I know your child’s educational experience is very important to you and the staff at Collins Elementary take that responsibility very seriously. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time if I may be of assistance.

Sincerely,

Mr. Loring

District Fever and Exclusion Guidelines

With the heightened flu season upon us please take time to review the District Fever and Exclusion Guidelines. A fever is a physiological response to inflammation or infection, illness or injury, or the result of heat exposure. While not always cause for alarm, it is sometimes the sign of a serious problem. Left untreated, a fever could be uncomfortable, cause dehydration and stress the cardio-vascular system. An oral temperature* of over 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit is considered a fever.

Inclement Weather Information

As we enter the winter months there is a possibility that school could be delayed or even cancelled due to inclement weather. Please review our district inclement weather page for information regarding how the decision is made to delay or cancel school, what it means when school is delayed or cancelled, and how that information is communicated out. You can also review our district windchill policy on that page as well.

BRRR IT'S COLD!!!!

Our area is experiencing very cold temperatures over the next few days. Parents please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately for the cold weather. The district urges students to wear winter hats, gloves, heavy coats (layer up) and boots. Frostbite and hypothermia are serious risks and need to be taken into consideration. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately in layers over the next several days especially when riding the bus to and from school.

WINTER READING BREAK CHALLANGE

Dear C.E.S.  Parents/Guardians,
During the upcoming Winter Break, we are CHALLENGING our students to read, or be read to every day.  Reading daily helps develop literacy skills such as vocabulary, phonics, and reading comprehension.  On the back of this letter you will see a chart for you and your child(ren) to fill out each day.  The student(s) can read on their own, read out loud to others, or be read to by someone else to count for the Reading Challenge.  Each day, the title, author, number of pages or number of minutes read and guardian signature is needed.  Students will turn in their completed Reading Log to their homeroom teacher no later than January 6th. Students who complete the ENTIRE challenge will be invited to have lunch in the library during the week of January 12th! Enjoy your Winter Break and encourage your student(s) to READ!

Happy Reading!

   Do you want to change a child’s life and make a meaningful contribution to our school?   Become a volunteer Reading Coach!

One to One: Practicing Reading with Students invites COLLINS ELEMENTARY parents, grandparents, caregivers and community volunteers to play an integral role in helping struggling young readers with the support they need to be successful in reading.  Each volunteer “reading coach” will commit to meet with a 1st-3rd grade student just 35 minutes per week during the 2014-15 academic year.  Coaches provide children with the time, attention, and the opportunity to practice reading which will make a difference in their lives.  One to One requires new coaches to complete six hours of training in September 2014 and complete a background check.

To obtain additional information on One to One, please visit the Northern Kentucky Education Council’s website at www.nkyec.org.  If you’d like to be contacted when specific training dates and locations are confirmed, please contact Nancy Costello at the Council, ncostello@nkyec.org or (859)282-9214.
