Parents and School Friends:

I hope everyone enjoyed a safe, relaxing, and rejuvenating Spring Break. It’s hard to believe… but the end of the school year will soon be upon us! April is shaping up to be an exciting and busy month for us at Martha Layne Collins High School. We thank you, in advance, for your support as we push all students to a successful finish to the school year.

 Here are some key events in the life of our school during the month of April:

Please be mindful of these school events and support us by ensuring students have a good night’s rest and a good breakfast prior to test days. Also, we will continue to push phone, email, and text notifications to you by way of our Blackboard Parent Communication system. Please remember to consult the website calendar for a listing of school events.  A weekly calendar is also published through the Titan E-news.  If you do not receive the Titan E-news, please email Ms. Leesa Stivers, our Youth Services Center Coordinator, at leesa.stivers@shelby.kyschools.us to register to receive it.

At MLCHS, we are continuing to focus our classroom instruction on moving students to mastery of standards: ensuring students possess the knowledge of the course standards and are able to demonstrate the skills of the course standards. Thanks for your help in ensuring students are well prepared for school each day. It truly takes a village to raise a child; we appreciate your partnership in the education of your child. We look forward to seeing you on campus in the near future at a school event.
