Dear Mustangs,

School started smoothly—students found their classes, lockers opened and school has begun.   Mustangs, young and old, are glad to be back in the building! Smiling faces, new backpacks, first day of school outfits, and an extra spring in their step could not make me any happier. I love the first day of school!

Few friendly reminders:

If you are needing to park and come into the school, our visitor parking is on the side lot. The front lot is for faculty and staff and here is why. When it is arrival/dismissal time, we have found it easier for visitor—those coming and going—to be parked to the side as it helps with the traffic flow. Thank you for your understanding.

While our doors were open today at 7:30, and will be the rest of the week; starting on Monday, August 25th our doors will not open until 7:45. Students are to report to the cafeteria until 8:25 when they will be dismissed to their first class of the day.

We are running on a Friday schedule all this week.


Due to decreased staffing, our media center will not be open after school. We are trying to work out schedules so that we can have it open until 4:30 two days a week, but for now the media center will not be open after school. Our media center will be open prior to school starting at 8:00, so should your child need to utilize the media center, please take advantage of the morning time.

Should your student still need to enter his/her reading for the OC Teen Summer Reading Program in order to enter the grand prize drawing from the Oldham County Public Library, they will be accepting online reading submission until Thursday, August 28 for. Go to
