With a flip of the calendar and a dip in the thermometer, administrators at Ballard County Schools are discussing plans for any bad weather this winter.

As soon as a decision to close or delay school is made, the district has several pathways for letting parents and the public know, Superintendent Casey Allen said. The district always advises local media outlets of any schedule changes. Banners are placed on this webpage as soon as possible. Parents also are welcome to check the Ballard County Schools page on Facebook, WPSD Local 6 or KFVS 12 on television; WKYQ-FM (93.3)/WDDJ (96.9), their related websites, and/or www.westkentuckystar.com for any delays, closings or dismissals.

 
A recent amendment to Kentucky state law regarding required student immunizations schedules will go into effect for the 2018-19 school year. However, to meet the new requirements, most students likely will need to receive the first new immunization before January 2018.

"Our district just received these new regulations, and we are trying to get a head-start in the process," said Ballard Director of Pupil Personnel Bob Wilson. The district will offer a clinic on Dec. 11 to help with this effort (please click to see more ).

There has been such great parent response to Ballard County Schools’ instructional day for the Great American Eclipse on Aug. 21 that the district has made some slight adjustments to its visitors’ traffic and parking plans.

“We are very excited to be hosting so many families on Eclipse Day,” said Superintendent Casey Allen. “Very few students in western Kentucky are going to have the opportunity that our children will have on Monday – students, families and school staff being together to watch this rare celestial event that people are traveling across the world to see. It is going to be historic!”
