A September in Swing!

It’s hard to believe that we have already been in school for a month! It has flown by… and has been filled with a lot of activity. It has been great to welcome students, staff, parents, and community members back to campus over the last month. September is shaping up to be a busy month. Below are a few key events in the life of Martha Layne Collins High School this month:

  • Schoolwide Fall Assessment Day -- Wednesday, September 5. Activities are differentiated by grade on that day:
    • 8th grade: MAP (Reading and Math ONLY)
    • 9th grade: MAP (Reading, Math, and Language Usage)
    • 10th grade: MAP (Reading, Math, and Language Usage)
    • 11th grade: Practice ACT
    • 12th grade: College Visits (organized to 5 different campuses).
  • Governor’s Programs Parent Meeting -- Tuesday, September 11, 6-7:30 p.m.
    • Come and receive information about Governor’s School for Entrepreneurs, Governor’s School for the Arts, Governor’s Scholars Program
  • College Fair (at Shelby County High School) -- Wednesday, September 12, 6-7:30 p.m.
  • Site Based Decision Making Council (SBDM) Meeting -- Wednesday, September 19, 3:45 p.m.
  • Football Homecoming (vs. Spencer County) -- Friday, September 21, 7:30 p.m.

 Below are a few reminders:

  • Student Drop-off and Pick-up
    • Students are to be dropped off no earlier than 7:30 a.m. and picked-up be 4 p.m. unless under the direct supervision of a MLCHS staff member.
    • Car riders should be dropped off in the front circle in the morning. They should be picked-up either in front circle or the east parking lot (facing the new subdivision).  Please do not drop off or pick-up students up at the “T area” near the football field.  The west parking lot (close to the baseball fields) is designated for student parking only.  This is not a designated drop off or pick-up area.  
    • Abiding by these principles will help us move traffic in and out as quickly as possible. Please allow adequate time for traffic in both the morning and afternoon.
  • Website Calendar
    • Please remember to consult the calendar on the website 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 the Youth Services Center Coordinator at pile@shelby.kyschools.us to register to receive it.
