Attention parents of incoming kindergarten & 1st grade students - a recent change in Kentucky Law has amended KRS 158.030 to say that beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, any child who is five (5) years of age, or who may become five (5) years of age by August 1, may enter a primary school program.    This date change will impact students who have birth dates between Aug 2 and Sept 30.    If your family is impacted, please review the attached petition for consideration for early enrollment (click here to access the form).
