ATTENTION: 6th Grade Students & Parents

Physicals and Proof of Immunization for 6th Graders
To enter 6th grade, your child MUST have a current 6th grade “Kentucky State School Physical” and a valid up-to-date “Immunization Certificate in a Kentucky form.” These certificates must be completed and signed by a physician or Health Department official. If your child is currently up-to-date, a 6th grade school physical and a Tetanus (Td) booster may be all that is needed.
Please send a copy of your student’s updated Immunization Record and 6th Grade Physical the first week of school if possible. They may be returned to the Advisory Teacher or to the Front Office. We will be updating student files within the first 30 days of school and will need these records.
Thank you.

EMS Vision


Parents of EMS Walkers and Car Riders,

 First, let me thank all of you for your patience and willingness to work with us as we alter our dismissal procedures.  I wanted to take a moment to explain the reasoning behind some of the changes and also to let you know what our procedures will be for the remainder of the year. 

 We moved our walkers and car riders to wave three because of a supervision need within the building.  This is difficult for parents to see because they are not in the building but when students are dismissed, they need supervision.  We only have a certain number of teachers available to be in multiple places, so the best possible place for our students is in the regular classroom with their teacher.  They will remain with their last period teacher until 3:35 pm when they are dismissed.  Please plan your arrival to EMS according to this time.  Backups and delays occur when there are many people in the parking lot waiting at once. 

 We all realize that the design of our parking lot is not ideal for the dismissal of 200+ students at one time.  Unfortunately, we must deal with what we have.  The safety concerns have come from students crossing the parking lot to get to cars parked on the other side as well as three cars lined up in what is meant to be a parking spot and a travel lane.  For this reason we will no longer permit parking on the sides of the lot designated for driving at any time.  There are three visitor spots in front of EMS to be used during the day for quick access and there are plenty of parking spaces throughout the rest of the lot at any time during the day. 

 Beginning Monday September 9th, no parking will be permitted on either side of the lot.  Any car coming into EMS will be asked to park unless simply slowing down to pick up a student waiting on their ride.  There will be two crosswalks painted for students to use in front of the main entrance and in front of the gym entrance.  These crosswalks will be monitored by a teacher on duty who will stop traffic to allow students to cross.  Once students are in the middle they will use the sidewalk to find their car and get in with no other need to cross traffic.  Once all cars are parked and students begin using the crosswalks normal traffic laws and regulations will be in force.  Also, please know that these changes will not affect morning drop-off procedures.  Thank you all for your continued support.
