  • LaRue County students have “got the power”

    If you happen to see some high school students helping the little ones during Trick or Treat on the Square Oct. 31, they likely are members of a LaRue County High School organization built upon serving others.

  • Course serves as guide for LCHS students

    Freshman year of high school can be an intimidating transition for students.

    Besides the social navigation, there is an increase in responsibility and learning academic and life skills.

    A new course offered to ninth grade students at LaRue County High School promotes learning about responsible ways for students to take care of their bodies.

    The course, “Reducing the Risk,” which began this month, focuses on sexually transmitted diseases and infections, human immunodeficiency virus and pregnancy prevention methods.
