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?

Shoes For The Needy shoe donation

In November Cooper High School was selected by Duke Energy as the School of the Week featuring their shoe drive that coincided with their musical, Footloose. Cora Dotson helped lead students on a Service Learning Project that collected shoes for the needy at the Brighton Center and helped to put domestic violence in the spotlight. That project just wrapped up with a total of 184 pairs of shoes to be donated! Duke donated $1,000 to the Cooper Drama Department. The story was featured on WKRC Channel 12.
