  • Alert:

    As we all know, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, all travel has been severely restricted and non-essential businesses have been closed.  This means that Spring Break plans for almost everyone has been canceled.

    With this in mind, we are amending the school calendar for next week and these days will now be school days.  Due to this change, the last day of school for Estill County will now be May 14th

    This change will allow us to keep our students on a routine that will ensure a continuation of instruction and other services.  All staff will still be available for our families and food service will continue to serve breakfast and lunch.  For any family that still has plans for this coming week, your student can complete their work at your discretion.

    We will have further information tomorrow concerning the distribution on new NTI packets for days 11 – 20 as well as the return of work completed during the past 10 days.

  • Alert:

    As a reminder, ALL Estill County athletic facilities are now closed to the general public.

    Also, with the school closures, the KHSAA has suspended all spring sports and declared a dead period ending on April 19, 2020, at midnight.

Planning Period: 10:23--11:28 Feel Free to call school during this time about any concerns you may have! 

Hello! My name is Ben Slusher and I am the 7th grade science teacher here at Estill County Middle School! I am so excited to be working my dream job here at ECMS as both a science teacher and middle school football coach. 

I was born in Cleveland, Ohio but have moved around several times since. My family finally settled in Middlesboro, Kentucky where I graduated high school and now consider my hometown. 

I then attended Eastern Kentucky University in 2014 and graduated with a degree in Middle School Education in 2018.

I currently live here in Irvine and I am so excited to spend my first year teaching here in Estill County! I live with my two cats: Johnny and June. I also love Ohio State football, learning about Appalachian Culture, listening to podcast, and spending time with my family! I look forward to teaching and getting to know my students and their parents.
