Special Announcement

Dear Parents,

          Barbourville Independent will have metal detectors in place beginning on Monday, April 9.  Backpacks containing metal rods/arms will not be permitted. This will be a testing period.  We hope to be able to continue allowing backpacks, however, it is possible that we may have to reconsider if backpacks become an issue.  Any item that triggers the metal detector will not be permitted in the building. 

          Student safety is our top priority.  Thank you for your continued support in protecting our students.

Sincerely,

The BIS Staff

Barbourville Independent Non-Traditional Instruction Days (NTI) “Tiger Days”

Barbourville Independent

 

Non-Traditional Instruction Days (NTI) 

“Tiger Days”

 

An NTI day, known as a Tiger Day, allows Barbourville Independent to provide non-traditional instruction on days when students are not able to attend school due to inclement weather.  On the designated NTI days, students will have assignments (either online or paper packets) that provide enhancement, remediation, and enrichment opportunities.  Depending on the student’s grade level, the assignments may contain lessons from reading/language arts, mathematics, and writing.  Lessons are supported with online resources but can be completed without access to the internet.

 

Teachers will be available from 8-12 and 1-3 on Tiger Days via school email.  Students are encouraged to email the teachers for assistance with assignments.

 

Tiger Days will be announced through the television, the school webpage, and the school Facebook page. 

 

If a student is unable to complete the lesson prior to returning to school, he/she will have three days to make up the missing work.  If a student fails to submit the NTI day work on the final make-up day, the student will receive a zero for that assignment.

Calendar 2017-20182017-2018 Lunchroom Policy For Outside Food

Beginning School Year 2017-18, Barbourville Independent will no longer allow restaurant or parent food/deliveries during breakfast and/or lunch.  Our school is a full CEP school which means that all students receive FREE breakfast and lunch daily.  A cafeteria menu will be provided monthly on our school website to ensure that all students know what is being served in the cafeteria each day.  Students will be allowed to bring lunchboxes with them in the mornings but we encourage ALL students to get a meal in the cafeteria.  This policy is in place in order for our school to continue providing students with FREE meals and to guarantee the safety of each student.  If you have any questions please contact Kim Raley, Food Service Director.
