    Science Hill is proud to be a smoke-free campus!!
    A 100 percent tobacco-free school policy reflects a firm commitment by school administration, teachers and parents to provide students, personnel, and community members a safe, tobacco-free  environment. Tobacco-free schools (including alternate nicotine products and vapor products) give adults the opportunity to be role models for tobacco-free lifestyles and set the tone for reduced social acceptance of tobacco use. In addition, studies show that students in tobacco-free schools are less likely to start smoking. More resources here.

    When entering the school property for drop off or afternoon pickup, please go to Langdon Street and Walnut Hill instead of entering YellowJacket Way from Hwy 27.

    Pop Tab Collection

    Please help 4th and 5th graders with their service project of collecting pop tabs for 4-H club. The collected pop tabs will be recycled and the money earned will be used to sponsor children to attend a summer camp. You may turn in any pop tabs to Mrs. Eastham or give to any 4th or 5th grader.

    Thank you for helping us give back to our community!

    Volunteers
    If you come in to the school you  must sign in at the front office for security reasons.  Also, we get to count your time here in the school as volunteer hours.  PTA generally will recognize a “volunteer of the month” at the regular PTA meetings.

    April 27, 28, 29 - K-Prep Testing for grades 3-8 (more info below)

    There has been much talk about state testing (K-PREP) this spring.  The administration of “annual summative assessments” is required by state and federal law, but was waived last year due to the pandemic.  However, this year the federal government is not providing waivers for testing, and the state has no recourse but to do K-PREP testing this spring.  Participation in the state assessment can help determine if students are meeting academic expectations, identify holes in student learning, and identify gaps among different student groups.  Administering the state assessments will provide a clearer picture of the pandemic’s impact on student learning.  Our in-person students will be completing the K-PREP tests, April 27th, 28th, and 29th. 

    FRYSC News

    **UPDATED NEWS FROM NURSE GRETA**

    We no longer have to screen temperatures upon arrival to school or boarding the bus.  Anyone who is symptomatic will be screened but please continue to screen your students at home and do not send them if they have a fever or are symptomatic.  Just a reminder as well that if your child has a fever at any time, for any reason above 100.4, they cannot return to school until they have been fever free without the use of Tylenol or Ibuprofen for 72 hours.  This is a change made by the state this year that we must follow and we want everyone to be aware that if a child has had a fever, they must be out for 72 hours fever free before returning.  If you have any questions, please contact Nurse Greta.

    Our Schoolhouse Mobile van will be here a few more times before the end of the school year.  They are able to do immunizations, physicals, sports physicals, and much more.  Remember 5th grade students must have a
    physical & immunizations before they enter 6th grade so I would encourage parents to call Nurse Greta for an appointment to get your child’s physical and immunizations done here without the hassle of sitting at a doctor’s office plus we have all the paperwork done for the school year.  We will send you a copy as well.  Please contact Nurse Greta for any questions or to set up an appointment. 

    Congratulations to the Elementary FPS team for placing 2nd in the District Governor’s Cup competition!!

    Telling Our Story KY is a new initiative by Kentucky public schools to build support and awareness of the accomplishments and positive impact of public education in Kentucky. Educators have worked tirelessly for decades to build the future of our communities, counties, and state.  In the next few weeks we will be highlighting some special folks who are connected with OUR public school either as a student or an educator and have gone on to make a positive impact in their community. We hope you enjoy our posts as we highlight just a few of our stakeholders.  #tellingourstory
