Superintendent Danny Adkins announces that Thursday, September 20 is State High Attendance Day in Kentucky.


On High Attendance Day elementary, middle, or high schools compete in small school or large school categories and awards are determined statewide based on each individual school’s performance. The school in each category with the highest percentage attendance for that day will receive $500. If elementary or middle schools tie on the day of competition, the schools’ attendance on the previous day breaks the tie.


Adkins comments on why attendance is important, “We’re focusing on improving our attendance every day so that more kids are in class and have more opportunities to learn because that’s what this is all about. We want our students to have the best instruction in the best schools with the best teachers, the best guest speakers, the best career fairs, the best college visits, you name it; we want the best for our kids. And we need them to be in school to take advantage of the opportunities we have for them.” Adkins continued, “Our goal is to graduate young men and women who are ready to go to work, ready to go to vocational school or join the armed services or who are ready to go to college. We want our kids to have choices, and to equip them for the future, we need them in school every day.”


Adkins ended, “We want to see Floyd County have the top schools in elementary, middle and high on High Attendance Day. More importantly, we are asking for our parents/guardians/family members and our community to help us have all of our students in school every day so our students can have every opportunity for success.”
