Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year!
On behalf on the faculty and staff of Bath County High School, we want to welcome our students, parents, and community to a new school year. We are excited to welcome the Class of 2021 to our school and are look forward seeing our returning students. We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of the Class of 2020.
Bath County High School welcomes everyone to visit, however the administration takes every possible step to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Senate Bill 1, mandates a controlled entrance for all public school in Kentucky. All visitors to our building must enter the building through the front door and the secured lock entrance. A security system has been installed that requires visitors to be “buzzed in” through the front door. Visitors are required to provide the purpose of their visit to office staff and present a valid ID. All school visitors must immediately REGISTER IN THE OFFICE and pick up a VISITOR PASS. Visitors to our school must sign-out in the front office before leaving the building. Visitors may be requested to leave their identification in the front office to ensure guests sign-out of the building (waiting district directive). ALL VISITORS MUST PROVIDE A VALID ID TO OFFICE STAFF EVERY TIME THEY VISIT THE SCHOOL. THIS IS REQUIRED EVEN IF THE REQUESTING STAFF IS FAMILIAR WITH THE VISITOR.
No one is allowed to visit classrooms or enter any area other than the front corridor leading to the main office unless they have the principal’s approval. A visitor pass or Bath County School’s Employee Badge must be worn in a visible location at all times while visiting the school. No one will be allowed to visit classrooms unless written permission is acquired from the principal.
Many BCHS students were in attendance on High Attendance Day with an overall attendance rate of around 93%. The juniors won the pizza party with around 95% attendance. We appreciate the different organizations who helped make the day a success, including Family Discount Drug Store, Packs Walker, the Army National Guard, local cosmetology schools, and teachers and staff. Students enjoyed corn hole, inflatables, dodge ball, reading, movies, makeovers, and much more!
On Friday, September 6, thirty-two BCHS students were inducted into the National Beta Club. The ceremony was lead by Beta President, Daniel Short. After the ceremony, the entire club visited Tenth Frame Cinemas in Mount Sterling. Congratulations to all Beta members!
