2.  Our webpage will be updated with the information.

3.  We'll post the information on our Facebook and Twitter pages.  Follow us at Ludlow Independent Schools.

Drug Free Clubs of America Brought to Ludlow drugfree

All students in Grades 7-12 are invited to enroll in the new Drug Free Club at Ludlow High School.  Students have been given brochures to bring home if they are interested.  If students are interested in joining, the BROCHURE needs to be signed by both the student and parent and returned to the HS Office.  This is a unique club that doesn’t necessarily meet regularly like other clubs.  To become a member, students commit to be drug free and volunteer to be drug tested.  The organization partners with St. Elizabeth Hospital.  Lab techs come to school to conduct these voluntary random tests.  Students who are members never know when they may get tested. All results are confidential and only shared with parents and students – school officials do NOT receive the results. 

Parents, why would you encourage your child to join?  Keep reading...

Nominate SBDM

Each year, two parents and three teachers are elected in May to serve as SBDM Council members for Ludlow High School.  As school populations diversify, the state requires that the SBDM Council mirror the student demographics.  When the minority population of a school exceeds 8% of total enrollment, state law requires that a minority member must be elected to Council.  This school year, we have exceeded this percentage and must add a minority parent member to our Council to ensure minority representation.


Anyone interested in nominating himself/herself as a minority member of the Ludlow High School SBDM Council, please submit your name to the high school office no later than October 24.  An election for the new parent representative on Council will take place at the PTO bonfire on the evening of Thursday, October 26 at the softball field.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office through e-mail or by phone (859-261-8211).

National Safe Schools Week

The week of October 19-25 is National Safe Schools Week.  The emphasis of this year’s campaign is working toward a culture of kindness in our schools where students turn to trusted adults or each other to connect and find assistance during their time of need.  Every student needs a “go to” person.  Who is yours?  If ever there is a problem with which you are dealing, please know that there are adults at Ludlow High School who genuinely care about you and want to help you.  Determine who your “go to” person is, and please don’t hesitate to call on that person.  You may have more than one.

To show your support for this year’s campaign, please take the online “Stop the Bullying Pledge” on our school and district web page.  (www.kycss.org/leanpledge/index.php )  Let’s take a stand as a student body and show that such behavior has no place at LHS.
