Introducing "MyBusBuddie" parent portal

Parents and guardians are always interested in the status of the bus that transports their children.  While everything possible is done to assure that the buses operate on schedule, situations arise that can cause delays in their arrival times at a student’s stop.

The Kenton County School District desires to keep parents and guardians informed of the current status and location of their bus, and to make it as easy as possible to provide this communication without interfering with parents’ normal schedule.

Canned Food Drive

Please help Student Council and Leadership support Action Ministries and donate Canned Food.  A canned food drive will take place November 16 – December 11.  Drop off your canned goods to student services or to room 205, Mrs. Stacy-Schaefer.
