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.

Superintendent's Article 8-8-16

Dear Readers,

 It is likely that moving forward over the next couple of months I will spend a lot of time writing about the Nickel Tax that is now set for election. I feel that it is important to use every opportunity available to me to assure that true facts are being released to the community. In a previous article I stated that it is the responsibility of every voter to know the facts on both sides of every issue. I hope to help with that process as much as possible.

Let me start by clearing up some myths, misstated information, and complete false statements concerning the nickel tax. (click on title to continue reading)

Early Dismissal Wednesday!

Dear Parents: 

This past Saturday night our Trimble County High School Lady Raiders won the 8th Region Title for the 1st time in 35 years!!! The Lady Raiders defeated Simon Kenton High School by a score of 62-54 and have earned the right to compete in the Sweet 16 State Basketball Tournament. Our girls will play Campbell Co. High School Wednesday, March 9th, at 6:30 pm at Northern Kentucky University.

Due to the timing of the game and the travel time involved, Trimble Co. Schools will dismiss school at 2:00pm on Wednesday, March 9th.  An early dismissal will enable our pep buses and band buses ample time to safely travel to NKU.  It also provides more time for our students, and employees to travel and arrive in sufficient time to support our girls in State Tournament Play.

Each year, our calendar committee builds in extra instructional time to allot for delays and early dismissals so this one hour early dismissal will not have to be made up.

This is a great accomplishment for our school district and we hope you can join in as we show our support for our Lady Raider Basketball Team!

Get your tickets NOW... Lady Raiders are Going To STATE!!!

This past Saturday night our Trimble County Lady Raiders won the 8th Region Title for the 1st time in 35 years.  At the beginning of the season these young ladies set a goal and made a vow to "honor the legacy" of the 1976 and 1981 teams which also were Regional Champs.    That goal became a reality Saturday night when our ladies defeated Simon Kenton High School, by a score of 62-54.  (click title to continue reading)
