• Alert:

    January 15, 2021:  Estill County School Announcement

    After reviewing our COVID-19 Mode of Instruction Metric and looking at several data points, the district feels that we need to return to remote learning during the week of January 19 through January 22.  This is not due to any type of spread within our schools, but related to county and state data and a number of quarantines that has resulted from activities and events in our community. 

    Each individual school will be contacting their students and families with additional information. Teachers will be working with students daily to assist them with their assignments.  Meal delivery will resume next week and students will receive a breakfast and lunch for Tuesday through Friday. 

    Hopefully, our data points will improve during the next few days and in-person classes will resume on January 25 using our Hybrid A/B Schedule.  We continue to ask our entire community to follow all CDC guidelines and continue washing your hands, practice social distancing and wear a face covering.  Have a good weekend.

                             curriculum, ACT or SAT I score results, essay, special talents and abilities

                             and academic letter of recommendation. Applicants are offered admission

                             on a competitive basis, with those meeting the University’s selective

                             admission criteria receiving first offers.

  5. Have your guidance counselor submit the high school counselor verification form: *The high school verification form is not required. It is recommended for students applying to the JB Speed School of Engineering so we can see courses in progress if they are not presented on transcript and also as an easy way for high school's to verify free and reduced lunch when applicable. *Note: applicants to the School of Music must also pass an audition. Admission to the School of Nursing is a two-step process with the new freshmen being admitted to the lower-level division and then re-applying to the upper-division as a junior.
