Press Release from Superintendent Schlosser - Sunday, March 20, 2016
I would like to reassure families that your child/children are safe to return to Marion County High School on Monday, March 21, 2016. Please note the following:
At approximately 1:30 p.m. on March 18, 2016, the Lincoln Area Health Department confirmed that there were no bed bugs at MCHS after a walkthrough and inspection of the building.
At 8:00 am Saturday, March 19, 2016, Allan’s of Central KY Pest Control was on site at MCHS to inspect the building and provide services. After their inspection the company did not find any bed bugs, but as a further precaution MCHS was treated.
On Sunday March 20, 2016, MCHS custodians are on site sterilizing the entire building as an additional, extra precaution; there is always a goal that students and staff at MCHS are in a clean, safe environment.
There will be continued inspections by our Chief Operations Officer, Director of Maintenance, the high school Principal and the head custodian at MCHS next week.
I encourage everyone to work with us to make sure we continue to have a safe school. When issues arise, please give us the opportunity to work through our policies, procedures, and protocols. In the event that there is an occasion when it is deemed unsafe for students or staff to be in a building or in a situation then there will always be a decision made to address the issue or situation.
We will continue to work hard to make sure all students remain safe – from the moment they step foot on a school bus in the morning until they return home in the evening. By working together we will make sure our district is a place where students get closer to accomplishing their dreams every day.
