School Closed Friday, October 19, 2018

Late Thursday evening, school district officials were alerted by the Kentucky State Police of a high potential possible, credible threat to a school system being investigated with ties to two central Kentucky counties, including Anderson. As a precautionary measure, Anderson County Schools will be closed today, Friday, October 19, 2018, as the KSP investigation is still ongoing. No staff or students are to report to any school. District officials will be monitoring the situation closely and will provide updates via one call, district website and social media as they are available. Thank you for supporting Anderson County Schools.

Note: Determination about extra-curricular events scheduled for Friday afternoon and evening will be made and communicated later in the day, once additional information is received from KSP.

articlelogo Attendance Challenge
 Attention SECC Families: 
   Following Fall Break, we will begin an Attendance Challenge for both Preschool and Kindergarten classrooms.   The P and K classrooms with the highest average attendance will recieve a reward.  Rewards may include popcorn parties, brownie parties, pajama parties, and various other treats.  While we realize that there are times when absences can not be avoided because of illness, emergency situations, etc., we also realize the value of good school attendance during the early years and want to encourage families to make good attendance a priorty for your student.   
   Here are some good reasons to make school attendance a priority in young children:

  • Students who miss school in the early years will fall behind their peers.   The early years of school are where we are establishing the foundation for future learning and when your child is absent they are missing out on learning.
  •  Research shows that Kindergarten students that meet Kindergarten readiness criteria but miss at least 10% of their Kindergarten year will fall behind other classmates by their third grade year.
  • Students that miss a great deal of school miss out on not just academic learning but also social experiences and connecting with other students.
  • Preschool and Kindergarten are critical years where your child is learning the value of education as well as many other important life skills.  When they miss these experiences, they are MISSING CRITICAL LIFE SKILLS!!!

    Make your child's school attendance a priority NOW and set the foundation for their FUTURE!!!

    secc logo Morning Drop Off Procedures

    NEW Morning Drop Off Procedure for Monday 8/27/18: 7:30 am to 7:50 am

    Any adult wishing to walk a child to their classroom will be asked to sign-in and exchange their car keys for a visitor’s badge. We ask for your keys so that we can ensure you’ll return the visitor’s badge and we can sign you out. At 7:50 am, adults will no longer be able to sign-in and walk a child to their classroom. As always, there will be several staff members on hand to help students to their classrooms.

    Please know that any procedure that is put into place is for the safety of all our students. We also want to assure parents that staff is always available to help students get out of their cars in the drop-off line, as well as being available in the halls to help students to their classrooms. Thank you all so much for your help in ensuring the safety of our students and we look forward to having a great rest of the school year!
