  • School back in session

    LaRue County Schools are now back in session. Pictured are students exiting the buses for their first day of school on Wednesday, August 5 at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School. Ending the day was not as enjoyable as students from Hodgenville Elementary School had to get on the bus during the rain at the end of the school day. The first break for students and faculty is Labor Day on September 7. 

  • Students should take care signing contracts

    By Tim Ballard


    At some point, students will have to sign a contract. When they do, they should keep in mind these tips from the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).

    A contract is a written legal document between two or more parties in which an offer is made and accepted. Contracts would include an apartment lease, an insurance policy or a cell phone plan. Read all contracts thoroughly and ask questions before you sign. Complete everything and keep a copy for yourself.
