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.

Students at Work on Non-Traditional Instruction Day

Non-Traditional Instruction (Snow Day Plan)

We are excited to share with you that Jessamine County Schools is one of 13 districts that has been granted approval to offer “Non-Traditional Instruction” (NTI) days during the 2014-2015 school year.  This plan will allow the opportunity for all Jessamine students to be engaged in meaningful learning on inclement weather or emergency days when conditions prevent schools from being in session.

Brookside Family Circle

 The Brookside Family Circle is available to all Brookside students and their families.  The center's focus is to remove barriers to student learning by assisting students and their families in meeting their needs.  We provide support to families by linking them with community and school resources that will assist them.  We work to promote and provide parent and community involvement in the schools, services to students and their families, prevention programs, recreational opportunites and referrals for basic needs.  The school nurse, Monti Kanatzar, is also located in the Family Circle should you have health concerns.  The center is located next to the gymnasium and someone is available between 8:00 and 4:00. You can contact Debbie Montgomery, Coordinator and/or Monti Kanatzar, School Nurse at 887-9871.

If you ever take donations to Goodwill, please remember to mention that your donation is for Jessamine County Schools.  This will allow our families in need to obtain a clothing “voucher” when we refer them.
