Teachers Holding Walk-In before School, Friday March 30th

Show your love for your public school! This Friday, March 30th, Dayton Independent Schools teachers will be holding a walk-in before school to rally support for public education in Kentucky.

What is a walk-in? A walk-in is a peaceful gathering where people can express their ideas and concerns to their community. A walk-in allows teachers and staff to show support for public education without interrupting your students’ instruction.

Current budget proposals in the Kentucky legislature could have serious negative effects on YOUR school and YOUR students. Programs and staff will likely be cut if these proposals go through.

We are asking parents, students, and community members to join us if they would like to express their support for public education. We will meet outside both Lincoln Elementary and Dayton High School this Friday morning at 7:20am. We hope to line Greendevil Lane all the way from Lincoln to Dayton High School. Please wear RED to show support for public education, and you are welcome to bring a simple poster or sign (I love my public school, Honk if you support public ed, etc.). Please consider joining us and standing in solidarity as we fight for our schools and our students!

You can also voice your concerns to your legislators by calling the legislative message line at 800-372-7181.

Important Notice Regarding Solar Eclipse and Extended School Day...Dismissal at 3:50 PM on Monday, August 21

As many of you know, next Monday, August 21, we will experience a near total solar eclipse from approximately 1:00-4:00 pm. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon completely covers the sun. While we are not located in the area for a total eclipse, we will still be able to view 93% of totality.
This will be an extraordinary educational opportunity for our students as the last solar eclipse occurred in the USA in 1918. I know many of our schools have already planned special activities or lessons for this day to accompany the event. While the event is extremely exciting for our students, we must also acknowledge the importance of proper eye safety. Our district has purchased NASA-approved, ISO-certified viewing glasses for all students and staff members to help us navigate this day safely. Like any other day, looking directly into the sun without proper protection can damage eye tissue; this becomes much more of a risk when looking at the sky to see an eclipse. Normally, our bodies instinctively protect us from harm via reflexive squinting/blinking and constriction of our pupils in response to the brightness of the sun. During an eclipse, however, the shadow created makes it dark enough to fool our body's natural defense mechanisms, and partial but permanent eye damage may occur without proper eyewear for viewing the eclipse. The risk of eye damage is present for the entire eclipse....

Readifest

The Dayton Family Resource Center and Youth Services Center are hosting a district wide Readifest at Lincoln on August 9th from 1-3 p.m. Community agencies will be in attendance providing information on their resources. Students will receive school supplies, clothing, haircut coupons, and schedules (grades 8-12).
