Raider Days snow

Dear Trimble County School Families:

Trimble County Schools have been approved once again, to offer “Non-Traditional Instructional” (NTI) days, also known as RAIDER DAYS for the 2018-2019 school year. This means that Trimble County Schools will be allowed to deliver content to students so that they can learn at home on bad weather or emergency days when conditions prevent schools from being in session. The NTI days will limit the interruption of learning that occurs due to school closings, because students will have assignments (either online or paper packet) that provide review opportunities and application of prior learning. Additionally, NTI days do not have to be made up at the end of the school year, provided that the students do their assigned work on RAIDER days.

Will an NTI day be used every time that school is cancelled for snow?

Trimble Co. Sheriff's Deptartment helping to keep Trimble Co. students safe! sheriff

Law enforcement from the Trimble Co. Sheriff’s Office provided training for the Trimble County School District this summer in preparing and making sure they know what to do in the event of an active shooting or intruder situation.

Trimble Co. District Employees gathered at Bedford Elementary School and the Trimble Co. JR/SR High School to learn more about what actions they can take in an active shooting situation.  It wasn't just presentations and discussions, the Trimble Co. Sheriff's Office took teachers into the classrooms and showed them first hand steps and resources that they can use to help protect the students. The staffs in each school were provided baseline knowledge, best practice and protocol and also some confidence in their ability to apply that knowledge in an intruder situation.

The training also provided insight into protocol the district can follow to help reduce the access that an intruder would have into the building.  As a result, visitor and parent check-in procedures were revised and will be implemented this school year.  We don’t want to inconvenience anyone with our new check-in procedures, but we feel it's our obligation to do everything we can to maintain the safety of our students. 

The ‘Visitor Check-in Procedures’ can be found here.

Parent Climate & Culture Survey

Milton Elementary Families,

I hope this finds you all doing well and excited about the upcoming holiday break. Our staff and students have been working hard to achieve goals and share their successes with you as we finish up the first half of the school year. At Milton Elementary we are committed to providing our students with a quality education and a welcoming family environment. Your feedback is key to helping us to achieve those goals.

As part of our commitment, districts across the state of Kentucky are surveying their families to gather their perception of the Climate and Culture of their school. We invite you to take this brief survey to provide us with important feedback in these areas. The survey is anonymous and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. You will provide basic demographic information and answer 3 checkbox questions regarding your perception of our school. Please consider providing your input to assist us in improving our interactions with you.

The survey will close on Friday, December 15th. You may access it by clicking the link below or copying and pasting into your browser:

Permission Required to view Solar Eclipse eclipse


On August 21, 2017, for the first time since 1918, a solar eclipse will be visible on a path across the United States. Our District will not be in the direct path of totality for the solar eclipse but will still get to experience this historic event. The Schools have been busy planning to make this event a unique learning experience for our students.

On August 21, 2017, all District students (with your permission) will be allowed to go outside and participate in activities and view the period of near totality (“Solar Eclipse Viewing”). As always, student safety is our top concern.
