Earlier this week, Governor Andy Beshear recommended that no in-person classes take place in Kentucky until at least the third week of August. Following the Governor’s recommendation, the Breckinridge County Board of Education met this morning and approved a new school calendar for the 2020-21 school year. In-person classes in the Breckinridge County School District will start under an A/B schedule on Tuesday, August 25, 2020. The school district will operate under an A/B schedule through Friday, September 11, 2020. Our plan is to transition to a full five days a week, in-person class schedule on Monday, September 14, 2020, as long as it is deemed safe to do so.
As the new school year begins, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and to let you know of our commitment to serve you and your children. Maximizing scholar success and opportunity in a positive and safe learning environment is a priority at Breckinridge County Middle School. Our goal is to inspire and challenge our scholars to achieve greatness in their futures. With the entire Breckinridge County community working together, we can be remarkable.
Scholars at the Breckinridge County Middle School continue to perform at high levels academically because of strong partnerships throughout the community. School and district student achievement scores continue to be high. Our scores exceed regional and state averages. There is much for our community to celebrate, and we look forward to many more celebrations in the upcoming school year.
The leaders at the Breckinridge County Middle School are focused on our scholars’ academic and emotional well-being. We focus on helping scholars achieve high levels of academic success while making schoolwork challenging and engaging. We are also aware of the many emotional challenges our children experience throughout the middle school years. Our hard-working and dedicated leaders strive each day to ensure that our scholars are successful and are being empowered to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century working world. Our leaders are looking forward to working closely with you this school year to help our scholars explore their interests while excelling in all areas of their academic and extracurricular endeavors.
