No School Monday August 21, 2017

With much consideration and like many districts in the area, Bath County Schools will be closed Monday, August 21, in observance of the solar eclipse which most of Kentucky will experience.

The safety of the students is our primary concern and the reason for our decision to close schools.

Our teachers have already prepared lessons to give our students a better understanding of the solar eclipse and its historical and scientific implications.

Having the day off from school will provide parents and students a joint learning opportunity.  There are opportunities on the internet for parents and students to learn more about the eclipse together.

For more information about the solar eclipse, visit http://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/

Early enrollment for Kindergarten

According to KRS 158.030(2), there is a new cutoff date starting next school year to enroll your child in Kindergarten. Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, children must be (5) years of age as of August 1, instead of the October 1. 

A waiver for children to start kindergarten who are not yet (5) years of age as of August 1, may be granted through the Petition for Early Enrollment Form process. Deadline to request this option is April 1, per district policy 09.121.

Your child will go through an evaluation process, which will give important information to the district about the best placement for your child.  Your child is required to pass with a 95% in all areas of the Early Screener Tool. Other factors to consider, other than student readiness, will be availability of funding and space. The district will use this information to decide whether to admit your child for early enrollment.

Please contact the school that your child will be attending in order to get this process started. Contact personnel for your school will be following…

Sherri Kissick, Owingsville Elementary (606-674-2722) or

Bath County Food Services

The Bath County Schools’ Food Service Department, would like to take this opportunity to emphasize the importance of your child participating in the school’s free lunch program, also known as the Community Eligibility Provision Your child’s participation in this program, not only provides nutritious meals for your child, but also helps many struggling families in our community.

Stressing the importance of a great start to the school day, by your child eating a well-balanced breakfast and lunch, is essential! We understand that our participation in the National School Lunch program, restricts our menus to certain guidelines, but our schools do work hard to provide nutritious, well-balanced and appetizing meals to all students in the district. Your child’s lack of participation for this free service, may affect the district’s future participation in the Community Eligibility Provision program. If you have further questions please call Vickie Wells, SND at 606-674-6314.
