Community Safety Survey

Barren County School District Students, Staff, Parents and Community Stakeholders -

Our hearts and thoughts continue to be with families, students, and staff who have been impacted by the recent school tragedies in Marshall County and Parkland, Florida.   Like all communities, we are concerned about threats in our community and our schools.  Our approach to school safety is centered around prevention and the efficiency of our response to an emergency situation.  The survey below is focused on additional preventative measures we are considering to implement this school year.  In response to hearing your ideas and thoughts, the Barren County School District is conducting a survey to engage the community stakeholders in dialogue about any additional safety measures or procedures that will make our students and staff feel more comfortable in our schools.  Thank you for lending your voice.  We appreciate your prayers and continued support as we strive to improve as a district.  The link below will take you to the survey.  The data will be immediately tabulated for our use. 

Sincerely,  Bo Matthews

PARENTS! To give the students the best educational experience possible, we’re excited to raise funds for additional swings for the playground! And we’re hosting a Fun Run to make that happen. Family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving February 13-22nd. Our 2-week Fun Run program kicks off on February 13th!

Check out this website that we will share again 2 weeks before the Fun Run to give you an idea of what the GLOW & Go JAG RUN is all about! 

Plus, leading up to the Fun Run, students will learn how to be brave and live with character through an unbelievable character theme, Castle Quest.

This is how it works!
