  • ON EDUCATING LARUE: Back-to-school policy change

    As students enter LaRue County schools to begin a new year of instruction Aug. 8, a few reminders and schedules might be helpful.

    Summer break not only gives the students time to revitalize themselves for the fall semester, it also affords maintenance crews and custodians needed time to repair and prepare buildings and grounds.

    “Some things – stripping and waxing floors, cleaning carpets, painting doorways, asphalt sealing – have to wait until the student traffic is not there,” said Phil Fulkerson, director of maintenance and grounds for the LaRue County School District.

    Another costly repair that takes the most amount of time might surprise most people.
