“BE INCREDIBLE, Reveal Your SUPERhero!”

To keep Kentucky schools safe places in which to learn and work, I pledge to be:

Strong and make good choices to improve myself and my school.

Understanding of others and realize everyone is unique with varied talents.

Powerful by reporting to an adult, or sending an online tip.

Encouraging when a fellow student needs reassurance.

Respectful of others and treat everyone as I want to be treated.

Reveal your superhero, take the online "BE INCREDIBLE, Reveal Your SUPERhero! Pledge Against Bullying."  KCSS stands on the belief that every student has incredible super skills and talents that make them unique and strong.  By taking the pledge we are working together towards creating a "family-like" culture in our schools and community. www.kycss.org/sswpledge

Solar Eclipse and Eye Safety

A total solar eclipse is probably the most spectacular astronomical event that most people will experience in their lives. There is a great deal of interest in watching eclipses, but it must be done safely.  Because of this exceptional opportunity, there is concern that people will be more likely to stare at the Sun during this event.  Improper viewing of the Sun during an eclipse can result in eye injuries such as the development of "eclipse blindness" or retinal burns.  Please see article for more info.
