We are excited to share MealViewer, a menu app that allows students and parents to view our school breakfast and lunch menu by phone or any other electronic device. Having the school menu in the palm of your hand will be both convenient and easy to follow. The MealViewer app is a powerful tool for parents and students with information on nutritional values, allergens, favorite foods, school announcements, and special menu items.

Bourbon County School District is preparing for the August 21st Solar Eclipse. There will be special lessons at each school prior to the eclipse and students will have the opportunity to view this natural phenomenon. NASA approved eclipse-viewing glasses will be provided by the school district to every student and employee to ensure eye protection while viewing the eclipse. The eclipse begins at 1:02 p.m. and ends at 3:54 p.m. The moon’s shadow will almost completely eclipse the sun around 2:30 p.m., which will cause the sky to become dark. On average, an eclipse such as this occurs every 375 years and this marks the first total solar eclipse in history that will be viewable only from the United States. This is a very exciting and real-world learning opportunity for our students!
