Boone County is Granted 28 New Family Resource Centers FRYSC

More than 33,000 Kentucky students now have access to supplemental services at school thanks to the recent opening of 28 new Family Resource Youth Services Centers (FRYSC), or “friskies” centers as they are commonly called. Kentucky now has 854 FRYSCs across the Commonwealth.

The primary goal of the centers is to remove non-academic barriers to learning in order to enhance student academic success. FRYSCs may provide referrals to health services, tutoring, clothing, food and other resources to students and their families. In the 2018 General Assembly, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) Division of Family Resource Youth Services Centers (FRYSC) was awarded approximately $8 million additional dollars to further the work of these local school-based centers. FRYSC held a competitive grant review for eligible schools statewide, resulting in the creation of the new centers.


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?

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.

Boone County Schools Grading Scale grades

During the 2016-2017 school year, Boone County Schools reviewed the board policy for grading (08.221). A revision to the grading policy was enacted in May 2017 based on multiple meetings throughout the year to analyze and evaluate local, regional, and national data surrounding grading scales and their impact on student success.
The grading scale changes directly affect all students in grades 4-12. Details of the changes are listed below.
Boone County PREVIOUS Grading Scale:
● 94-100 = A
● 87-93=B
● 86-78=C
● 77-70=D
● Below 70 failing grade
Boone County Schools NEW Grading Scale Effective July 1, 2017:
● 90-100 = A
● 80-89 = B
● 70-79 = C
● Below 70 is “I” for INCOMPLETE until June 30 of the academic year. Students with an “I” will be provided support by the school to remediate learning to reach a 70. If the grade is still listed as an “I” after June 30, then it becomes a failing grade.
This new grading scale provides comparability of student achievement between Boone County Schools and that of many other districts across the nation.

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.
Words of Encouragement during the first week of school... paw print

Happy New Year or rather, Happy New School Year that is!
We are excited about seeing our 925+ students on Opening Day, August 16.

To help our Kindergarten and 1st Graders get excited about our new school year, NHE Mascot Paws would like to email him/her a few words of encouragement.

If the district calls a delay due to weather / temperature the school building will be delayed in opening as well. We had several students being dropped off well before the building was due open. We do not want any children exposed to the weather and be put in jeopardy. If we have a 1 hour delay the building doors will open at 9:00 / 2 hour delay the building doors will open at 10:00. We do not have staff available prior to operation hours to monitor students.

If you need assistance with winter attire please feel free to contact the school and we will work with you in finding what your child needs.

Help One of Our Own

One of the most amazing features of NHE is the atmosphere of “family”. No faculty member exhibits the attitude of family more than our beloved Heather Jones. This past summer Mrs. Jones’ sister, Quinn, was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer which was found to have spread to her bones and large intestine. As you can imagine the medical expenses have been overwhelming.

To help offset these expenses our New Haven family is hosting a Spaghetti Dinner/Trivia Night on Friday, November 7th at St Tim’s Catholic Church. Dinner is from 6-7 pm, trivia 7-8pm. The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children. You will need to create a team for the trivia portion if you choose to participate. Teams can be any size (within reason). Prizes will be awarded for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trivia teams! There will also be a split the pot. Please make plans to attend as well as spread the word! Thank you in advance for your support, love and encouragement!

New Haven is continually working to ensure that our school is both safe and welcoming. This year we implemented a new check in process that helps keep an accurate record of all visitors to our school. Starting Monday, visitors will also be asked to show a photo id upon check in so that school officials can verify that you are who you say you are. We hope you will all agree that any minor inconvenience is worth our students’ SAFETY!! Thank you and we appreciate your support!
