Missed Day Waived

The JCPS school board voted last Friday to waive the make-up day for last Friday, April 13, when over 2,500 teachers called out to protest in Frankfort. The last day of school remains Thursday, May 31, and graduation dates also remain as scheduled.

Field Testing

Manual will give field testing for Algebra II, Biology and English II this week. Students will take it in their scheduled, applicable classes instead of at specific times during the day.

Brandi Knauer (12), DeAnna Williams (11), and Tabitha Mitchell (11) examine their lab sheet before starting the lab.
