9/17 is High Attendance Day

On Tuesday, September 17th, Shelby County Public Schools is participating in the state "High Attendance Day" sponsored by the Kentucky Directors of Pupil Personnel. Elementary, middle and high schools across the state will be competing to determine which school has the highest percent attendance at each level. Statewide winners will receive $500.

High Attendance Day is an excellent reminder that regular attendance is essential to success in school. Director of Student Services, Michael Clark says, "Without question, students who arrive on time and attend school each day are more likely to grow academically, emotionally and socially." We encourage all students to attend school each day and help us lead the state with 100% attendance on Tuesday, September 17th.
