    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.

    Drop Off/Pick Up Routine

    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.

        MESSAGE FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT

     

    Hello Yellow Jacket Nation!  I'm happy to announce that our Board of Education unanimously approved our Covid-19 Operations Plan on September 14th at our regular board meeting.  This plan puts the decision regarding masking of students back in the parents' hands and allows you to decide what is best for your child.  You can find a copy of this plan below.  Above this announcement is the link to an onine form for parents to fill out for EACH student enrolled in our school.  The form will let us know your decision regarding masking for your child.  We also plan to send home a hard copy of this form.  We only need the form filled out ONCE for EACH student.  If you access the online form, you do NOT need to repeat the form on paper.  If you have any questions, please call or email our Dean of Students, Kellie Wilson, at kellie.wilson@sciencehill.kyschools.us for assistance


    Science Hill Independent Covid-19 Operations Plan

    Masking Policy - Starting September 20th, 2021 masking will be optional at Science Hill School.  Parents will choose whether they want their child(ren) to wear a mask while at school.  We ask that each parent EITHER complete an online form or a paper form to indicate their decision on masking for their child.  Teachers will be provided with this information and will let parents know through regular communication methods if the child is not following parent guidelines.  Failure to mask for a child whose parent has indicated they want their child masked will not be a discipline issue within the school.  Rather, the parent will be notified and be asked to correct the issue at home or come change the masking form on file to remove the masking request for their child.

     

    Quarantine Policies-

    ****Vaccinated Students will NOT need to quarantine****

     

    Virtual Instruction during Quarantines- 

     

    Chromebooks are available to checkout from school the next school day after the quarantine is reported.  Please call the school to request a chromebook.

     

    K-4:  Student work will be collected and available at the office the next school day after we are notified of the quarantine.  Student work is expected to be returned when they return to school.  Teachers will make contact with students multiple times during the quarantine to provide instruction and check progress.  If Google Classroom is a regular part of classroom instruction it may be utilized during virtual instruction as well.

     

    5-8:  Student work will be posted on Google Classroom for each core class.  If students work with hard copies during the regular school day rather than online resources those will also be provided during virtual instruction.   Students are responsible for completing and submitting work.  Needed textbooks/chromebooks can be picked up at the office the next school day after we are notified of the quarantine.  Teachers will post lessons/instructions on Google Classroom and will check in with students multiple times during the quarantine to provide instruction.

     

    STUDENTS ARE STILL RESPONSIBLE FOR SCHOOL WORK WHILE IN QUARANTINE.  IF A STUDENT DOES NOT COMPLETE THEIR WORK, THEIR GRADES WILL BE IMPACTED.
