• Alert:

    Menifee County Schools will follow the recommendation of Governor Beshear and will begin our school year with online instruction only on August 26th.  Although we hoped to offer in-person classes, that is not possible at this time, so we will support our students in making online learning the best educational experience possible. We will continue to update our community as we approach possible in-person start dates based on future guidance. 

    With these changes, we will be making adjustments to our plans for “Parent Nights” to offer more guidance for all students. Please watch the Menifee County District Website and Facebook page for updates on dates and times for picking up Chromebooks and other materials. 

    Additionally, please see earlier information on our website and Facebook page regarding online registration. This information should be completed for all students. There is additional information about support and assistance with online registration included in the registration document. 

    The faculty and staff of Menifee County Schools are looking forward to the 20-21 school year. Although it is not what we had envisioned for our students, we are dedicated to serving our students and families to the best of our abilities and making online learning a positive experience.

Menifee Central Update

Breaking the Mold

Stakeholders,

As you know, we are working diligently to ensure Menifee Central is completed timely and efficiently.  We have great news to share.  All bids for construction were opened on May 16th.  This will enable us to potentially complete the entire building at one time.  This amount included items that we wanted but were not sure we could afford, such as canopies at the bus drop-offs and parent drop-offs, upgraded flooring, security glazing for the windows and doors, card readers at entries and a very nice LED sign out in front of Menifee Central.  The schedule for construction is 18 months.

 

The Board met on Tuesday, chose low bidders and approved the sale of bonds associated with this part of the building totaling $14,355,000.  The total project cost is $14,760,293.  See the break down below.  The difference between the bond amount and the total project will be paid by cash derived from cash savings from the Capital Outlay Fund - $5,569, the Building Fund ( Nickel Tax ) - $245,812, remaining SFCC funds - $128,912 and a $25,000 reimbursement from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. 

 

We added the demolition of MES and added $150,000 for furniture for the new building to our costs for this project.

 

Menifee Central Financial Plan Funds Available

 

There is already work being completed at 359 Wynn Flat Road.  The ground is being cleared.  I have attached a list of low bidders.  These are all reputable contractors.

 

Menifee Central Winning Bids

 

 

This is very exciting for our school district.  We came this far due to the hard work and support of Menifee County Schools’ staff and community.  This started with a goal and a yes vote.  

 

We will continue to keep you informed as we proceed.
