Schools CLOSED Monday

Due to the inclement weather, schools are closed on Monday, March 3rd. 


All 11th graders are reminded that the ACT will still take place on Tuesday.  Be at school on time -- by 8:20am.  Get a full night of sleep and eat a good breakfast.



Juniors Take the ACT Tuesday!

All 11th graders around the commonwealth of Kentucky will be doing one thing Tuesday morning:  Taking the ACT.  As part of the state's assessment system, it is mandated that juniors take this test to measure their college and career readiness.  Scores can be used by the students for their own college admissions and scholarship purposes, even though the test is given during the school day.  Each student's goal is to at least reach the state's benchmark in three areas:  English (18), Math (19), and Reading (20). 


We ask that ALL 11th GRADERS be at school ON TIME on Tuesday, March 4th.  We know our juniors will show their Panther Pride and work their hardest on the ACT.

The LHS Play is This Weekend!

Once upon a time, long before Walt Disney delighted audiences with stories of princesses, dwarves, glass slippers, and singing animals, the Brothers Grimm collected much darker, gorier versions of these fairy tales. 


Ludlow High School’s upcoming production of The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon explores these stories as two narrators attempt to guide the audience through a comedic mash-up of 209 tales.


Show times include Saturday, Feb 22nd at 7:00pm and Sunday, Feb 23rd at 2:00pm.  Tickets are $5 at the door.

Scheduling for the 2014-2015 School Year

Now that Spring is in full bloom it is time for Ludlow High School Students to register for their 2014-2015 courses.  Ms. Currin will be doing this with all students in grades 8-11 in the next few weeks.  The first meeting will be with 11th Graders on April 10th. 

During these meetings, students will receive a planning booklet, detailing all of the course choices along with other important information.  Students will be instructed to bring these booklets home to share with parents/guardians. 

Registering for courses is done online through the Infinite Campus portal (the same site used to check grades).  Students will make preliminary choices when working with Ms. Currin, but will still be able to make changes online through the end of May.  Once students have made their final choices, they will bring home a printout of their selected courses that parents/guardians must sign and return to school.  The form is due to Ms. Currin no later than May 9, 2014.

If you have any questions/concerns about this process, please contact Ms. Melissa Currin at or 859-261-8211.

LHS Parents, We Want Your Input!

Parents of High School Students: We need your input!  As you may know, LHS will be hiring a new principal this spring.  As our SBDM parent and teacher members, along with Superintendent Mike Borchers, prepare to go through the selection process to hire a new principal, they want to know what qualities YOU value in a new leader.  Please give your feedback by taking the survey listed below.  It will remain open through Wednesday, April 9, 2014.


The survey includes four (4) questions and should take just a few moments of your time.  We truly value your input and will use it as part of the criteria for selecting our future principal.  Thank you!

Outstanding Teachers Recognized

Congratulations to Tammy Roberts and Vickie Baker!  These two outstanding teachers were nominated to receive a Golden Apple Award this year at the March 27th Excellence in

Education Dinner.  They were recognized as one of the area's Top 20 Teachers.  Both teachers are known for their dedication to the children of Ludlow, always going above and beyond the call of duty.  We certainly appreciate everything they do for students, families, and the Ludlow community.

Dual Credit Options for Students

Taking dual credit courses is a great way to save money on a college education. Dual credit courses are taken during high school, but they count as both high school and college credit.  The classes are actual college courses, and can be taken on the college campus, online, and now a few of them right here at Ludlow's campus!  Superintendent Borchers and the Board of Education are offering funding for the tuition and textbook costs for these courses for the 2014-15 school year!


You can learn more about what dual credit opportunities are open to YOU by talking to Mrs. Currin or Mrs. McMillen.  You can also check out our new dual credit link HERE for details about each college's program.



Thank You, Career Day Speakers!
