Flu Shots
The Health Department will be here on Wednesday October 26th to administer flu shots. Flu consent forms have been sent home and must be completed with all insurance information and turned in by Monday October 24th. No nasal flu mist will be available this year. All vaccines will be given in the form of an injection. There will be no make-up days for students that are absent or have not turned in consent forms. If your child is absent on that day, flu vaccination is also available at the Health Department.  
Picture Day

Picture Day: Picture day is October 25th. All students and staff will have their picture made for Infinite campus and yearbook. Envelopes for ordering packages of pictures will be sent home on Tuesday, October 18th. If you wish to pre-order or purchase pictures the envelope must be filled out and payment included. The student will bring the envelope with them on picture day, October 25th. There will be a retake and makeup day scheduled later for students absent.  

Grading Scale Change
Dear Parents/Guardians:
The Franklin County School Board last night responded to requests from the school councils of the district’s high and middle schools by approving a change to the grading scale for students in grades 4 through 12.
The new scale will bring the Franklin County Public Schools in line with many other school districts that have made this change, and it will help more of our students qualify for the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES), which helps pay for college for a large number of our students. The KEES program provides scholarships to students who earn at least a 2.5 grade point average (GPA) each year of high school.
The new grading scale will take effect immediately.
The following table shows the previous grading scale with the old figures crossed out and the new figures in red:
A 92 – 100 90 - 100
B 83 – 91 80 - 89
C 74 – 82 70-79
D 65 – 73 65-69
F Below 65
The change applies to grades 4 and 5 in order to bring them in line with the middle and high schools, and to facilitate the transition from elementary to middle school.
Please feel free to contact Mr. Bartley if you have any questions about this change.
