All schools will dismiss on June 5

June 5 is the last day of the current school year for students in both the Jenkins and Letcher County school districts.

Because of bad winter weather, Letcher County Public School students missed 27 days of classes and Jenkins Independent students missed 23 days.

The Letcher County Board of Education canceled spring break and the Jenkins Independent Board of Education shortened spring break to two days.

Letcher County Public Schools banked five days, which are used to compensate for some days missed and are days accumulated by having extra time added to the regular school day.

The Letcher County Board of Education was granted three disaster days from the Kentucky Department of Education for Letcher Elementary and Letcher Middle schools after the two schools were closed because of water problems on October 22, 23 and 24.

Jenkins High School’s graduation ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, June 6. Letcher County Central High School’s graduation ceremony will be held June 12.
