A Message from Superintendent Fields

A message from Superintendent Kathy Fields:
Jessamine County Schools, Nicholasville Police and the FBI continue to investigate the threat made against the students and staff of EJHS.  While safety protocols are followed daily, additional measures will be in place until this matter is resolved.

I am incredibly grateful to students, parents, staff, community members, and law enforcement officers who rallied around our district today in support.  We are a strong community.

Tomorrow, all buildings will be operating on schedule as planned and learning will continue to take place.

Our juniors will be demonstrating their best as they take the ACT.  "Count Me In Week" activities will continue.

As superintendent of schools, I promise that the person or persons responsible for this disservice to students, inconvenience to parents, and disrespect to our staff will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
