Time changing on first doors open at all schools
Doors at all district schools - Ballard County Elementary, Ballard County Middle and Ballard Memorial High schools - will not open until 7:15 a.m. this year. This includes the BCMS and BMHS gyms, and all other doors. 
Administrators are asking that students not be dropped off or arrive before that time. “It’s really a safety issue,” said BCMS Principal Amber Parker. “We want to make sure our buildings are as secure as possible before our students get here, and that we’re here to greet them and any other visitors when they arrive.”
Another change made with safety in mind is how middle- and high-school students will transition to the Career and Technical Center. Several students had expressed concern about walking in front of the school during those class changes, since the highway is nearby. This year, all students going to the CTC will go through hallways at BCMS, keeping the students inside for as much of the trip as possible.
