  • The Obscure Alcove

    By Sheree Priddy

    LaRue County Public Library

    Many of us have heard the old adage, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”

    There are numerous applications of this truism in our lives. According to knowyourphrase.com, it dates back at least as far as June, 1867, and is explained this way: One should not form an opinion on someone or something based purely on what is seen on the surface, because after taking a deeper look, the person or thing may be very different than what was expected.

  • Unexcused absences carry stiff penalities

    The LaRue County Board of Education approved several changes in the district’s student code of conduct at its meeting June 15.

    “Almost all the changes deal with unexcused absences,” explained Rip Collins, district director of pupil personnel.

    Those changes include:

    A student who has reached eight unexcused absences (two unexcused tardies are counted as one unexcused absence) will lose the privilege to drive to school for the remainder of that school year.

  • New test aims to have ImPACT

    Over the last four years the LaRue County High and Middle School student-athletes have been required to take the ImPACT test (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) which is the most-widely used and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system.

    LaRue County High and Middle School in conjunction with HMH Sports Medicine department began the ImPACT testing in September, 2011. As of today over 1,100 baseline tests and 205 post-injury tests to student-athletes in the Larue County school system have been administered.

  • Program changes with the times

    Significant changes are coming to the way Kelly Dean Sanders Memorial Fund items are distributed to students.

    “In the past, students who qualified received vouchers where they could obtain needed items at designated businesses in the area,” explained Rip Collins, LaRue County Schools’ director of pupil personnel who is in charge of the charitable program.

    “Now, students will receive a backpack filled with selected items they will need.”

  • Students reflect on future

    High School Commencement is often described as both an ending and a beginning.

    As graduates separate to follow their own pathways to adult life, they say goodbye to a school system they have been part of much of their lives and hello to those as yet unknown roads that lie ahead.

    Kaelyn Herrin, LaRue County High School Class of 2015 valedictorian, and salutatorian Cody McDowell are both aware of what routes they’ll take.
